The focal photo is my favorite picture ever (right now!) so I wanted it to be big. I didn't want to clutter the layout with a bunch of photos from this day, even though I took 319, because they would have taken away from my very specific purpose of highlighting a relationship. This is unusual for me as I usually like to pack my layouts as full of photos as I can! But this picture was one I was proud to capture with my newly learned photography skills:
The layout itself is fairly straightforward. My color choice was obvious based on the focal picture! I worked to achieve simplicity yet interest herewith the title treatment (2 styles of chipboard letters and letter stickers), the paper strip and rickrack at the top (my"sky"), and the flower border (formerly white and sprayed with pink ink). I also had my husband write the journaling because I wanted Grace to hear Daddy's voice in her scrapbooks too. Here are some detail shots (click to enlarge):
Well I thank you for stopping by today. I am happy I could share two layouts in one week!!! Now I am off to shoot some more photos downtown. I will share if any are good :) Have a great weekend all!
