This ought to be a Throw Back Thursday post as these pictures are reaching way back into my stash! Do you have a stash of pictures that you tote from crop to crop with you but you never get to? There just hasn't been "the" collection or set of embellishments that do the picture(s) justice? This set of pictures were amongst that collection until Special Delivery from Pebbles arrived at my doorstep!
This isn't really a two page spread so much as single layouts that mirror and compliment each other. I used similar elements from each collection and the mirrored layout complete each page as the pictures were taken on the same day and I wanted to do a bit of a compare/contrast.
Mia's page on the left full of all things pink, soft and girlie. I had originally intended on writing what she was doing, milestones she had reached, etc. As I sat down to write, I really thought the pictures, with their fun t-shirts that I made them, were more about their relationship; her role as a sister and his as a brother.
Layering the many die cuts, journaling cards and embellishments that accompany this collection!
Nikolas' page which is a bit more grown up, certainly still childish but I refrained from using the baby, baby elements. I just love that bear! He's so adorable! Such a proud big brother in his shirt! He loved that shirt!
The date stamp the is a part of this collection can really be used for more than just baby, as seen here. I used other date stamps for the year as my children were born before the years available on the stamp.
Have you created his/her pages lately? I'd love to see them!
