My Scrapbook Resume

Same place, different kid, different color scheme

I'm not done talking about Israel yet. I'm still thinking about our amazing trip to Caesaria. It was from those pictures that I made this layout that I used for Ella Stretch Your Sketch.

The photos of Max at the beach, made me think about how he has grown and matured. See how pensive he looks? I wrote all about some of those changes in those little journaling blocks. As for scrapbooking:  I used some gorgeous Basic Grey paper, brads, and stickers to compliment the blues of the sky and the ocean.

Compare that to this little fella:

When I showed Dave this picture of Sam, from the same trip to the same beach,  Dave said, "That is so Sam." Always ready to take on the world, no matter how big it is. When I started this layout, I had other photos, and again looked to oranges and blues to compliment the amazing blues in the photo. But, I found this photo captured so much, that I left it by itself, and added as little color, and as few words as possible. I started with some American Crafts paper in the back, and then layered on some Basic Grey beauties. And, nothing would be complete without a butterfly or two, or three, thrown in for good measure.
