This layout is going into our "People We Love" album. I hope I captured the special relationship Ansley shares w/her best friend. The top three pictures on the layout were from Isabel's first communion, and they were the only copies I had. This concept of a "People We Love" album comes from Stacy Julian's Library of Memories class and Photo Freedom book. I am so glad these photos won't be "lost" in Ansley's album. Of course she can have them for her album after I'm gone!
She did all her own journaling and truly captured the quirks of their relationship. Talk about night and day! But they are still BFF through thick and thin. The Sweet Leaf tag slides into a pocket behind the far left photo. (That one is such a favorite of mine!)
The sketch for this layout came from Close To My Heart's
Imagine "how-to" book and is called "Memoirs Complete." The great thing about all of these sketches is that you can tweak them to fit your photos. I also incorporated a multitude of distressing techniques to give this gorgeous Life's Delight papers an aged feel. Hopefully that will help to capture the timelessness of the girls' relationship. (The participants at my "Distressing w/o Stress" scrapbook class got to learn these techniques first hand.)
Thanks for "oohing and ahhing" over my sweetie pies! ;)
