I really liked one of the pages I did for my This is why I scrapbook album – the page with a gorgeous photo of my little girl, and lots of lovely bright and swirly colours. It used some papers that have been waiting in my stash for ages – they were the first ones that I ordered online at full price, because I loved them so much when I saw them on a layout in scrapbook inspirations! It’s the Basic Grey Phoebe collection.
I didn’t have enough of exactly the same papers as I used in the mini album, but I had very similar ones and I think the layout works as a 12×12 interpretation of the original. The title uses Papermania sticker and chipboard letters to spell out ‘I Love You’:
I used an orange WRM eyelet which says ‘you are my sunshine’.
The journalling reads:
‘This photo sums up your personality, fun and cute and happy. I hope you always find joy and laughter in the little things like you do now. You are my proper little sunshine, such a lovely sweetheart ~ you bring so many smiles and special moments to me each day. I will love you always xxx’
I think the layout looks nice and bright and lively which is perfect for a pic of my daughter!
Speaking of whom, she did some painting this afternoon with some poster paints I bought from ELC. She won’t wear plasticy aprons as she doesn’t like the feel of them, so whenever we’re doing something messy she has to wear an old t-shirt of mine! She had fun creating a masterpiece, though towards the end she really just wanted to tip the water pot all over the page, luckily it was a non-spill pot!
