All night crop completed....

This is one of my favorite pictures and when I found this journaling in a print advertisement booklet I knew exactly which photo I was going to use. This is my daughter and my grandmother (her great grandmother). I'm very lucky to have been able to spend as much time as I have with my grandmother and that my kids have gotten to know her. The paper is from Creative Memories and was part of our goodie bags from last night! So stinkin' cute!
As you can see, I spent some time on my daughters photos last night. This sketch is from scrapbooks etc magazine and I'm so happy with the way it turned out. Love these colors.
Willow and her ball. These butterflies were just perfect for her so I created this page around them :) The journaling was an interesting addition. I wanted to use this really skinny journal strip down the side of the page but it's much too small to do any kind of real journaling. SOOOOOO, I just picked 10 words that came to mind when looking at the photos and accented a few of them. There are perfect for her.
And last, Cam my handyman :) I've had these photos for over a year now and I had no idea what to do with them. When I had them printed from walmart I had a border added so that I didn't have to distress them myself. This made it extra difficult when making my page cause i didn't want to crop any of the photos. Had to leave the borders on. I think it turned out great though. I used "boys will be boys" cart on this for the hammer, screwdriver, and arrow font. I can't wait to show it to Cam, he's going to love it.
