Over the weekend I started working on a baby album for a girlfriend of mine who is expecting her second child, a little boy named Reid. I find that designing layouts without pictures is really difficult for me, so this project will be a good challenge and really push me creatively. Although I have some ideas for the pages I want to make, the majority of the album will likely be made up as I go or until I run out of ideas. The idea for this page started with the train from New Arrival. I knew I wanted to use the boxcars to write out Reid's name and keep with the images from the cartridge for the rest of the layout. For an initial page, I think it turned out alright.
