Happy accidents grace this 8.5 x 11 layout. I really did not start out wanting to use chevron, then I found this pattern and color combo and just really loved it. Did not have the exact Copics I needed, so I blended C3 and G21 to get closer to the green-blue shade of the paper. The paper is the flipside of some chalkboard patterned paper, so I used the chalkboard to mat the photos and for the banner. The theme was "Time Flies," but when I looked at my photos, I thought, truly, it has not flown. Yes, my son has grown up, but I have loved being his mom. This is the reward of motherhood: to see the cake reach doneness, yes? I really enjoyed the font (Spellbound), which I paid for because it has all sorts of styles to use. I wish my picture did the colors better justice. I treated the two younger photos with a B/W filter (they had colors that were messing with the page for me), and then kept the most recent in color, framed it with patterned paper, and popped it up. I also popped up the monogram to balance the two sides.
One of my Summer Bucket List items was to get caught up with my One Little Word album. I am happy to say that I am, indeed, caught up. So, I thought I would just give a 7-month recap.
I am using this 6 x 8 album from Ali Edwards. I really love the size, as well as the color. All of the pages you see have been inspired by her One Little Word class I have joined.
