Today's layout is one that makes me smile because I just love these photos of the Tedster with his very first floral experience. Our little guy had never held a flower before so when he got hold of this one he made the most of it... so much so that it ended up having to be put in the compost bucket. Let's just say there were allot of 'he loves me, he loves me not' moments all over the floor.
I have used the latest designs from Jillibean Soup which are some of my favourites as I love the soft tonings of the aqua, grey, yellow and creams along with the subtle patterns in each of the patterned papers.
I had a little mad moment and decided to create the brick background by using The Crafters Worskhop Brick template and tracing and fussy cutting each piece.
I've been keeping up with my goal of journaling on the front of my layouts and not having it hidden away on the reverse side. So far so good, although I'm still using hidden journaling!
