Welcome to Monica's Surprise Baby Shower Blog Hop! 

Our friend Monica from Monica's Creative Madness (link to will soon be welcoming a new little boy to her family, so some of us got together to throw her this surprise hop.  We're all making scrapbook layouts that she can use to keep up with all of the memories of the first year with her little sweetie.  

If you arrived here from Cameo Creations' blog, you are in the right place.  If you stumbled upon my post and would like to start from the beginning, head on over to the Cameo Creations Blog (link this to  Be sure to stop by each and every blog along the way for tons of baby album inspiration.  Plus, there's bound to be some awesome blog candy up for grabs!

These were my very first 8x8 layouts. You all know I don't scrapbook, but these pages were SO MUCH FUN to make! I just looked at them like giant greeting cards. They were easy to put together too.

My theme was At The Hospital and Welcome Home. Here are my creations:

I used several files from the silhouette store and from my own gallery (too many to mention) and the papers are by Echo Park and some freebies from Design House Digital. The BABY sentiment I cut on vinyl to make it easy to apply.
