...that take your breath away. with 3 girls, i have many of those moments.
when they were little, it was the cute little things that they did or they way they looked when
they slept so peacefully.
now, those moments come when i get a glance or capture a picture and i see a whole different beauty.
the realization that they are growing up and becoming young women. feeling in awe for the
fact that they are actually mine. that God entrusted all 3 of them to me, and that they are a
HUGE part of my heart.
my middle daughter turned 14 last week. she actually allowed me to take pictures of her.
most of the time i think kids these days, with their own cameras and phones, want pictures on their own terms, not taken by Mom. ;) but it was a good day, so i went with it.
i knew a scrabooking layout would come of them.
here is the first.
other than the photo, obviously, my inspiration for this page came from Marcy Penner.
she made a star cut file that i could download and use with my Silhouette Cameo.
second, i knew i wanted to use softer colors. i immediately reached for my Studio Calico Hey Day
collection 6x6 paper pad. i used four different patterned papers to achieve the overall look.
add some wood veneer stars, Elle's Studio tags, stitching, some mists, done.
it's not as complicated as it sounds. mostly, because i had it all planned out in my head first!! ;)
i felt like i ventured into new territory with using my Cameo and by using different colors than what i would normally reach for on a layout.
thanks to Marcy for always and inspiring!!
now, go run and download her star cut file!! ;)
