Baby bellies...

I am in the process of creating a layout about my baby bellies.

Each picture on the left page was taken the day of (or night before) I gave birth - the pictures go in birth order from left to right. On the right page are the pictures of the kids telling the baby "Come out!" (so obviously I didn't have one of those for my pregnancy with Lacie).

This is what I currently have going:

I used DCWV cardstock for the background. The toile paper was in a little kit/pack of paper I got from the local scrapbooking store. The black is just basic black cardstock (I think I got it at WalMart). There's some vellum in there, too.

I printed the pictures on plain white cardstock to make them look a little old fashioned. I digitally distressed them with some overlays from Second Mile Designs and then distressed them after printing by roughing up the edges with a nail sanding block. All the pictures are mounted on pop dots.

I used the Fiskars Threading Water punch and the Coluzzle templates for the circles. The flowers are from Prima and the black centers were done with Scribbles. I added some ribbon I got from Michaels and some circle/swirl clips from Heidi Swapp.

Here are some layout ideas I have thought about using (same basic idea...just different embellishments and titles):

The pictures were taken at a different time of day...the real colors are more like the second & third pictures show. (And in the third picture I show some Tim Holtz Sprocket Gears.)

Do you have some ideas for me on how to finish this up? I'd love to hear your ideas!
