Good morning! How does a layout sound today?
So, there’s a funny story behind this layout. At the time these pictures were taken, I didn’t know anyone on the bus with us- we were heading to the airshow in 2012. The only people I knew was my family, who was with me.
When I sat down to scrap these pictures, I realized as I looked at them, that the woman’s arm in the top photo looked strangely familiar. So, I looked at the second picture, and realized the little boy looked like my friends’ son B. Since it was 2012, her youngest wouldn’t have been born yet (she was likely pregnant with him in these pictures), so it must have been a very young B (her middle child also has a name that starts with the letter B. Just so you’re not confused, lol).
I sent her a screenshot of the two photos, and we both had a good laugh over it. She was in my pictures even before we became besties! (Proof showing we’re kindred spirits).
The other little head in the same seat as hers is her eldest daughter, A. My mom and the toddler twins are in the seat directly behind hers in the bottom photo, and my husband and M are in the seat ahead of hers in the top photo).
I created this layout by stamping the floral border along the lefthand side of the page using CTMH Pear ink. Next to it, I layered a 0.5 inch strip of patterned paper and layered the pictures next to that.
I cut the title and arrows from scrap cardstock using my cricut, and adhered the title ontop of ephemera from Jillibean Soup. For extra flair, I adhered a button from my stash in the centre of the circle, and tied a small bow using scrap twine from my stash.
To draw attention to the journaling, I watercolored the right hand portion of the page and wrote directly ontop of it once it was dry. I added a few other stamped and stickers odds and ends to complete this layout.
This sketch was my layout inspiration.
