DYL 2.0, Week 3, Layout 2

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.

Catching up with OLW 2017

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.
