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: and her template can be downloaded here:

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!
