When I saw these pictures that the Mr. took of my baby girl I knew right away these needed to be scrapped. Seeing her look so grown up (she's 12 people, 12!) just pulled at my heart strings. I see here every day, I KNOW logically she's growing up. But I'm just not ready for it. Like, not even a little bit. Time is moving way too fast. I would like to wield some control over the situation, but I lack the skills to build such a machine.... Sigh. This beautiful girl keeps me motivated to do better than my best everyday.
To make this layout, first I selected some pretty handmade paper I have in my stash. Basically, it determined my color palette. As soon as I saw the pictures I knew that I wanted to give a nod to time flying, and I wanted to use the beautiful clock and the wings on the Close to my Heart Artiste cartridge.
I used several cartridges for this actually I know they include: Art Philosophy, Elegant Edges & Home Decor in addition to Artiste! But the thing I am most proud of? This:
You see, I MADE this on my Silhouette Cameo! I used the Design software, and made it! I was VERY pleased with myself, lol. It involved learning all sorts of new skills and teaching the cat lots of bad word while I learned. But I needed a title, and just words weren't going to do it. Then it needed to have the right feel to it... So I just made my own cut file. If you are a Silhouette guru, it's probably not that big of a deal, but... I'm not, and this was exciting ;)
Here is the entire project a little closer up. I put a journaling tag up in the top corner behind the large picture. I figured she wouldn't want mom mushy stuff for just anyone to read!
Well, I hope you like the layout. I'd love to hear your thoughts, so PLEASE leave me a comment!
