For the layout I took the sketch and flipped it for the right hand side in order to make it into a double page layout. I find it really hard to make a layout of one child and not the other, certainly for layouts like this, so I had to make it into a double pager. Since I used four different patterned papers, this layout also satisfied the requirements of the Apron Strings birthday challenge number 15 as well. Three of the papers are from the Basic Grey Lemonade collection, and the striped one is from Wild Asparagus. I also added some tags from K&Co., rub ons from TLC, and metal embellishments that I bought at the Dollar Store when we were living in Canada four (!) years ago. I finished it off with some kitchen twine and dark green floss.
This layout is simple,
but I really like it, and I can't get over how the kids have changed so much. as I said in the journalling - gone are those adorable little children and in their place are two confident young people! I'm proud of them.
Till next time, happy days!
