It’s taken me a little while to capture the memories since I gave birth to my third baby at the beginning of January of last year. Slow and steady I’ve been able to get back to my craft room. It’s not often that you see a layout from me with so many busy colours but I am in love with the richness of these blues by Vicky Boutin in this 6×8” paper pack. I selected two pieces and trimmed them down to create this 8 x 10.5” page. These two boys are explorers and adventurers around our home. Most days they come back to grab a popsicle and off they go again. The Wander embellishments worked perfectly with the story. When that happens, you shouldn’t have to think too hard. After a little while I had placed a few key stickers around the photo.
The little word strips in the top left corner is also from the Vicky Boutin Wander sticker pack. I did distress the edges with a regular nail file. Yup. Nothing too fancy in these parts. You’ll notice that this layout doesn’t have a traditional title. I am finding that I don’t put that pressure on myself. If I want a title, I make one. If I don’t, then I don’t. This is me reminding you – there are no rules in scrapbooking. This was another story told and I couldn’t be happier.
