I hate it. I absolutely HATE it. Gavin (my 3 year old) has been the only one of my children lucky enough to escape it. Baby skin is supposed to be soft and smooth, not red, blotchy and bumpy. :( As I'm sure many moms do, I went looking for something to help...and this is what I found. I'll be honest, I was TOTALLY skeptical to be sure, but I thought, what the heck, it's worth a shot.

Make a 'runny' paste out of the baking soda and water. Not totally watered down, but not too thick either. Enough that it stays put on baby's face. I just dab it all over his sweet little face while I'm bathing him, let it sit for 30 seconds - 1 minute, then wipe it off, making VERY sure not to get it in his eyes. Then I follow up with the Aquaphor. This is what my Pediatrician suggested I use for the acne, so that's why I chose it. I've read that Eucerin works well too. I bathe him in the morning, and by the next morning the affected areas are mostly clear. He's still getting new spots, so I'm still using it, but it's almost gone, and it's only lasted a few days. HOORAY!!

So there you have it. Greatly reduce the length of time baby acne affects YOUR precious little one, and get those kissable cheeks back in no time!



Not much to report this week...except that the Project Life "Baby Girl" Collection is just about finished! Watch for it later this week, along with LOTS of other new PL products...and a SALE! Yep, a big ole' Birthday Bash! Not only is it my birthday week, but April also marks the birthday of GG Digital Designs...we're going on 6 YEARS!! I can hardly believe it...

Anyway, here are my Week 15 pages, ENJOY!



I've been busily working on getting Mack's baby album started using the "Baby Mine-Boy" Collection. I must say it has been a BREEZE getting this all put together. Definitely the only way this little guy will be getting a baby album! I have a cover page ready, but I decided that I'm going to fill it with pictures from his entire first year, so it won't be complete for quite a while! :) But here are his first 4 pages...with MANY more to come!

And here's his little birth announcement I made and sent to friends and family...okay...actually two of them. I loved them both, but ultimately ended up going with the first one to print.

*All products for the baby album are from the "Baby Mine - Boy Collection" from GG Digital Designs.



Sorry for the lack of posts lately...I'm sure it will pick up again soon. :) Trying to get in the groove and get a new routine going! Maybe...just MAYBE this week I'll be able to finish my baby pages for the first few weeks and also post pictures of Mack's finished nursery.

But for now, at least I'm keeping caught up on my PL pages...baby steps...right? ;)

I purchased some awesome arrow packs from Miss Tiina this week. She had a 75% off sale on April 1st, so I scored 2 packs for right around $3! I'm loving the variety they are giving my layouts this week!

As promised, a brand new Project Life collection just in time for the spring weather (around here anyway!) :) Introducing the "SERENDIPITY COLLECTION"! I'm in love with this color scheme and I'm SO excited to use it this month! I've also released an April mini kit that coordinates with the Serendipity Collection, so be sure to check that out as well!

And that's it! I hope you enjoy the Serendipity Collection as much as I do! Don't forget to post your layouts created using Golden Girls products in the user gallery!



A week full of Easter festivities! Dyeing eggs, hunting for eggs, and spending time with family...all in the beautiful springtime weather. I am definitely a fan of springtime...and it's not just because April is my birthday month! (although that does help a little...) :)

We are starting to adjust a little more to life with a new baby. The newness is wearing off for the kids (thank goodness...) but not for me yet, I can't get enough sweet snuggles! We are starting to find a new balance and sense of "normalcy". HUGE milestone this week, Mack slept for 6 and a half hours! Yep, practically through the night. I couldn't believe it. He's a little champ and treating his mama VERY well. :) Sorry I never got around to posting baby pages...maybe this week! :)

I've also got a new PL kit just about completed, so keep your eyes peeled. It will be hitting the digital shelves sometime later on this week!

And with that, here are my PL pages for last week:
