8 x 8 album pages.......My Grandparents

My next few posts will be of 8x8 album pages I am working on for a baby album. The album is for my best friend Carmen who is having a baby boy. She should be having him any day now, since she was due on July 10th.
I have been trying to follow a few challenges, but still want to follow the theme that I originally wanted. (And bought everything for!)
This first one "My Grandparents" took me 3 hours! Who would have thought? That is because I took the sketch from a challenge and adapted it into an 8 X 16 layout.

I used an assortment of products for these pages.
First I'll start wtih the adorable digital stamps. They are from Bugaboo and I plan on using them a lot throughout the album. They were coloured using COPICS. I used my new Cherry Limeade Cricut Cartridge for the letters and Plantin Schoolbook for the circles. The patterned papers were from 7gypsies, MME, Creative Memories, and Kei. The CS is CTMH-Cocoa, Topiary, Crystal Blue, and White Daisy.
The Challenges I am entering this LO in are:

Stamp Something- Go Digital!
            Practical Scrappers-Using your old Stash-Older than 1 year- 3 of these patterned papers I have had over  1 year for sure. The Blue Lettered one maybe almost 3 years.
The Stamp Man-Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by. Stay tuned for more pages!
