When it comes to preserving memories and photos of our children, we tend to want a fun, bright, and cheery paper to go along with our photos. Our Playful collection captures all of the excitement of childhood and is the perfect pair when creating layouts of our children.
I found the 'Playful' collection to be ideal for documenting layouts or albums where children is the primary focal point. This photo was taken in October of 2014 by my husband & it captured me & my son enjoying a chilly Autumn morning by a lake.
My son keeps getting bigger & bigger by the day & I find myself wishing that Father Time would slow things down a bit so that I can thoroughly enjoy these moments where my son is still tiny enough for me to protect from most of the obstacles that Life has in store--a moment in time where he's fascinated by the simple things like a colorful leaf, a wind up toy or even an empty box! A time when he gives me a hug or kiss simply 'because'. This is why I've titled this page 'Stay Little Forever (Please)' & how convenient that I even have a stamp with this phrase! :-)
The overall design of the page was based on a sketch created by The Nifty Pixel. I found this sketch to have the same characteristics as some of the papers from the 'Playful' collection--so I found it befitting.
I did a bit of stamping right onto the background of my page. I used one of the card stock accents from the 'Components' page as my journaling tag which I stored into a small kraft bag that is tucked behind my photos.
I finished up my page with random bits & bobs that I have in my stash that coordinated with & accentuated some of the colors from the 'Playful' collection such as the mini felt teddy bear.
I hope you enjoyed this colorful page! Enjoy the rest of the week...
