Jacksonbelle Tuesday Spotlight on Jack's World

It is (almost) Tuesday...time for another Jacksonbelle Embellishments Challenge! This week we are spotlighting the new Cosmo Cricket line, JACKS WORLD. My 'baby' is turning 4 in FIVE days so I decided to highlight his first year with some Jacks World. Sadly, he is the youngest of 3 and doesn't even have a BABY BOOK! So shameful!! This little book tells a bit of his story........
The title page is pretty simple. I painted the Kate's Blackboard Album with some making memories paint and decorated it with some Jacks World blackboard.
I wanted to put Calvin's ultrasound picture in the book. I sewed a piece of acetate onto some vanilla paper to make a little pocket for the image. Can you see that I wrote his gender on the acetate? The little bit of ric rack is from May Arts.
Calvin was my smallest guy. Very 'special' indeed!
Isn't his smile just adorable?
I glittered up the gator and added a little pull out journal tag on his 3 month photo.
The 6 month photo is of him inside a box. He loved sitting in boxes!! So silly!
I bravely cut out his 9 month photo and added some important milestones.
Isn't that sleeping picture cute?
I included a list of Calvin's favorites.......not a lot has changed in the last 3 years! :-)
Yep, Calvin lives up to his name.....TROUBLE!
I just LOVE the picture of Calvin attacking his cake on his 1st birthday! He didn't want to get his fingers dirty so he used his mouth!
What do you think of the last page? ;-)

Need some more Jacks World inspiration?? Check out these fabulous ladies........

Do you have some Cosmo Cricket paper?? Feel free to play along. If you upload to SCS, use the key word JBE016.
