Trenton - March 2009

I did this layout as a summary of all of Trenton's activities for the month of March. He's so cute! It was lots of fun to work with all of these photos :-)

Journaling reads:
March was filled with firsts for Trenton. The month started off with Trenton's first snow - 4 inches of it! Trenton also went on his first airplane ride. He and Mommy and Daddy flew to Texas for his baptism. Trenton was able to meet a whole bunch of cool family members! After leaving Texas, Trenton took another plane ride to Florida for his first wedding and beach visit. One of Mommy's friends from college got married on the beach in Pensacola. Trenton also visited a few museums and historical sites in March - Fort Barrancas and The Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola and the Virginia Air & Space Center in Newport News. Trenton's busy month was closed out by meeting the Easter Bunny. Trenton is looking forward to the upcoming warm months so that he can get out and see some more new things!

Growing Like a Weed

Yippee!! Another Trenton layout done! These photos were taken when he and Jenny and Jarrod were here in Texas for his baptism. He has grown so much since we last saw him!

Trenton's First Month

When I saw Irene Alexeeva and Studio Mgl's collab kit, Treasures of the Deep, I knew it would be perfect for recording the memories of Trenton's first month. Trenton's daddy is in the U.S. Navy, so I couldn't resist using a nautical kit for the layout.

I used the video tutorial on Jessica Sprague's website to learn how to use a template in PSE: http://www.jessicasprague-m1.com/videos/CKHybrid/JSprague-CT0109-PhotoTemplate/JSprague-CT0109-PhotoTemplate.htm and her template can be downloaded here: http://www.creatingkeepsakes.com/content/view/17371/

I took my finished template and layered it onto a 12 x 12 scrapbook page and finished it off with more elements and journaling.

Journaling reads:
Trenton had a very busy first month of life. Mimi and Pops came to meet him when he was only a few hours old! JJ came out a few weeks later to spend some time with her new grandson. Trenton also met his furry new best friend, Bailey, and his super fun neighbors. He was a trouper while Mommy and Daddy went on all of their house hunting excursions to find him a new house to live in. Trenton was supposed to be born on Superbowl Sunday, but he sure was glad that he came early because he was able to go to his first Superbowl party at cousin Aiden's house! Trenton hopes that his second month is as exciting and fun-filled as his first!
