Now I DID promise to show you some photos of my 11 year old girl getting her first pointe shoes for ballet, didn't I? Well, not only do I have some photos, but I have them scrapped! I made a quick photoshop collage which was an 8x10 divided into quarters, then I repeated it for the second page and added a title with a text box. I stuck the two 8x10's on white cardstock, stuck a strip of patterned paper down each side, rounded some corners, added a large white brad in a chipboard flower, and the page was done.
These two layouts will sit side by side in her album.
I completed another layout, yet again, scrapping a little piece of memorabilia from my middle girl. For this layout and LOTS of other simple inspiring layouts visit the 'Simple Aussie Girls' blog here. As I have said on the the Simple Aussie Girls blog, while I am SO FAR from the Best Mum Ever, for now this particularly loving child thinks I'm a candidate, so I've got to jump on that while I can. And show her in 8 years when I won't let her out of the house 'wearing that' and she thinks I am far from the 'best Mum ever'. I love this little sketch she did, left for me on the fridge. I especially like the fact that love is blind, and she thinks I have thin legs. Nice.
