Unicorn/Rainbow/Dream Catcher themed baby album

A couple of months ago, my cousin found out she was having a baby girl. I asked her what the theme would be and she said unicorn/rainbow and dream catcher. I immediately started collecting supplies. I have been working on this album for the last couple of weeks. I am so pleased with the way the album has turned out and hope you do too.

Next up is a layout of my son on when we took a VIA train trip from Edmonton to Vancouver this past spring.

The journalling reads:
Wehn my car was ready to be picked up in Vancouver, we decided to take the train one-way from Edmonton to Vancouver. It was a once in a lifetime experience with wonderful food and breath taking views. Kyle loved every minute of the ride from wandering around, wtching movies, looking out the window, playing with his toys or snuggling. It was a 26 hour ride with only 2 stops (one while we slept). March 14-15 2017

This layout is really special because my son picked out the papers and stickers himself at the scrapbook store with our train trip pictures in mind.

I used Let's Scrap 5-1-17 sketch because as soon as I saw it the bookmarks reminded me of tickets so it was just perfect for the train photos:

my son loves picking his nana up from the airport when she flies in. I love his expressions and how excited he is. I took these pictures as soon as he saw here.

I am submitting this for Let's Scrap NSD special challenge:

I went with the top row of banners, stitiching (faux) and ink splatters. 

I am also entering this for May's Scrap the Boys May challenge as it is photos my my mom with my son. I used lots of purple and a flower as i was inspired by the photo:
