My husband's brother and his wife have the cutest little boys and recently added lil' Lily to their family.  She has to be one of the prettiest babies I have seen (with the exception of my granddaughters of course...LOL)  I loved this picture of Lily especially since she was wearing the headband a good friend of mine made for me to give her.  I knew I wanted to create a layout that I could frame and give Aaron and Cherie as a gift when they travel down here to Florida from North Carolina in a few week for Easter.  I used Simple Stories Baby Steps.  I hand stitched the two kraft tags ( I really must work on my handstitching or better yet get a user friendly sewing machine).  I also embellished my vinyl pink Thicker with little swiss dots....I love to embellish my embellishments to really make them mine.

I am entering this layout in the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge to use brads or eyelets.  I used a couple of brads on my double tags. 

I am also entering it in Burlap and Buttercups "What's Your Style?" challenge.  My style is usually pretty clean and simple -- I like to have my photos take center stage.  I also like to coordinate the colors of my layout to the colors in my photo.

There is plenty of time for you to enter a project in both of these challenges....I hope I have inspired you to do so and good luck.
