It hangs in my home now, and I still love it.
This layout is so incredibly simple. I used an Exact-o knife to cut the red frame. I printed my title and journaling on vellum, and used the Exact-o to cut it into wonky chunks. The only other "design element" was using pops of red in the journaling.
Why this one? Why now?
Well, I'm not really sure. I flipped through an album and there were a couple of layouts that I could have used, but when I got to this one, I stopped flipping. Molly's 14th birthday was yesterday, and of course birthdays always make you aware of the passage of time. Molly's only two in this photo. They ALL are so young here. And so perfectly them. The journaling - which is too long to transcribe - talks about how there's so much commotion (yep) but also how wonderful having siblings is because they all know your journey and understand you so thoroughly.
(Oops. I just realized that this photo is slightly different than the one I have hanging here. In the enlargement, Molly's head is showing. But it's still blurry. :P)
Alright. I'll have a current layout up tomorrow. It's been quite a week around these parts. Stay tuned. ;)
As always: Thanks for stopping by!
