30 minutes old...

Every once in a while my friend Eleni was asking me to do some more scrapbooking. Once I found out I was going to be an aunt, I told her "as soon as my nephews are born, I'm sure I'll get into scrapbooking as well".

Two days ago my first nephew was born, and I missed a meeting with our crafty group because I couldn't get away from him and his mother. And Eleni told me "been there done that twice (...) give up card making and devote yourself to scrapbooking (...) ".

Well, I think she's right. I LOVE cardmaking and I don't want to give it up... But since I got the first photos of my nephew, all I want to do is scrapbook. And here are the results of my attempt this morning:

It is the very first photo of my nephew Andreas. In the room there were twelve crazy of us, father, grandmother, aunts, uncles, looking at him, most of us crying (me included of course!). And when he opened his eyes and looked at us... omg, I just wanted to stop crying because the tears were so many I couldn't see him well! 

You see, we are the typical Greek family, very close to each other. And he is the first of his generation! Luckily, we are waiting for his cousin in two months, so he won't be too spoiled by all of us, hehehe

So... for the layout I used the sketch from Once Upon A Sketch:

Nadia asks us to combine the sketch with the journalling theme of "Hello 2012 or Goodbye 2011"? What a better way to say hello to a new year than a new baby... and a new generation?

I hope you like it!
