I just finished a few layouts of some of my favorite pictures of my kiddos. The three of them are the loves of my life....I hope it shows in my creations. I tried to tell a story with each layout. Some in journaling, some with the embellies themselves.
This first layout was inspired not only of my favorite picture of my middle child, but a quote I saw online and just LOVED. I'd been searching for a fitting quote to participate this week at My Time to Craft Challenge Blog. I ended up with: "A princess is what you were meant to be, 'cause being sweet comes naturally." I tried to use pretty, yet wimsical supplies to compliment that quote.
This layout is a picture my 5 year old daughter actually took. She asked to take some pictures on Thanksgiving last year and came out with this awesome pic of her big brother. I saw a layout online where the scrapper used the word sunshine but spelled it 'SONshine' since it was a layout about her son. I thought that was super cute, but finished it off with the chorus to 'You are my sunshine'. I couldn't find the type of items I was looking for, so I decided to try to create the feel of a sunny day. I used a sky blue for the background. I layered a grassy shade of green to anchor the picture and strips of dirt colored brown. I even added a snail to make it more obvious it was the ground. The journaling strips are cropped from a cloud print paper. I used a sun embellie on the corner to finish it off.
Last up is the newest member of the family. I just adore this photo of her chubby little cheeks!!! I could just eat them up :) I have commited to take a photo once each month and this is the April photo :) I followed sketch #183 from Pencil Lines
