Maria perfectly captures the joy of a newborn baby with this gorgeous By the Sea layout and tutorial.
"This is a clean and simple layout I made for my dear friend Lauren! She loved the By The Sea sneak peeks so much, I knew a special project was in store. By The Sea is not only perfect for beach memories, but it also works very well for baby boy projects! I used the matching chipboard, stickers, and tags & pockets along with some of the new artist trading tags for a fun touch." -Maria
