Hey Y'all! So very excited to be sharing this layout with you. I felt like I wanted to use all the things in the "Note to Self" kit and although I managed to use quite a bit of it....I did practice some self-control. The photo was taken from above my kids and has a purposeful "upside down" look to it to go with my thoughts about right now.
Let's talk layers. Black and white and oh-so-lovely patterns!!!! I just cut these bits from the cut apart sheet and added the "enjoy the moment" sentiment, stamped in a light grey.
Color Shine (in gold!!!!!) was totally the inspiration to add more "splattered" stamping. I used those perfect circles and that delicate heart one to give an artsy feel to the layout.
I couldn't part with the branding strip on my background paper and so, I left it. Then I folded up the edge of the white cardstock and did some date stamping + messy stitching (on purpose and because it's the only way I know how).
So fun to have the addition of subscriber free printables for the perfect journaling spot. Loving that scalloped edge and that "My Thoughts" stamp.
Can't wait to see how everyone uses their stamp sets mixed with printables this month!
oh, how I love this – totally conveys the sparkly yet chaotic days of young motherhood :D
Your journaling is wistful yet those precious faces make us understand what a willing labor of love it is to raise them up right. Sweet…
