It was a sad day for me last summer when my cousin, who is like a sister to me and a dear friend, moved to
with her two little ones. Her son is the same age as mine and they were the best of friends. She still has her lake house here and we’ve been lucky that she’s been back often. She is in town this week, in fact. She is great about sending me pictures, though. I put them on my fridge and in my scrapbook, pages I make for her. Austin
My cousin sent me this photo of her son and little girl by the fence in their yard and I knew immediately that it would be perfect for Echo Park Paper’s So Happy Together collection.
This is another project I made with the August Album Kit at My Creative Scrapbook. I love these kits! This particular paper, the background, was a scene paper and I arranged my photo mat on the page to both cover up and incorporate the scene by echoing the flowers in the design. Actually, I flipped the background paper upside down because that worked best for my design, placing the heavy flower vine on the bottom left to anchor the page and leaving me a spot for a big title block.
I think the kids look so sweet and innocent in the photo, just chilling with their sippy cups. The
sticker, “finding joy in watching you grow,” was just the right touch. Echo Park
Sigh. Babies grow too fast.
