I'm so in love with the fresh color palette of the brand new "Park Drive" collection by Webster's Pages. The coral, green, gray and yellow are just so soft and beautiful together. These photos are of the girls and me on Mother's Day this year. Since I became a mom, I have taken photos and created a layout every year and journaled about my feelings on motherhood. The past year for me has been all about balance - trying to teach the girls, take care of our house, support my husband and still get a little time for myself. I might have to sacrifice sleep for the time to myself part but so far, it's been just what I need!
I had recently picked up a set of Maya Road chipboard hexagons and I
covered several of them with patterned paper. Some of them are nested
too so I dry brushed them with white paint for a shabby chic look.
The new charm is actually from the Halloween collection but the colors were just too pretty not to use it for this layout.
I just love all the cute stickers Brandin has designed for the past few collections.
I like to think of these layouts and actually all of my layouts as love letters to my girls. I hope they know exactly how much they mean to me and how much I love them. I definitely scrapbook a lot of fun events and everyday moments, but it's also important to me to scrapbook the difficult moments too. It's a little more realistic that way. I hope that it helps paint a better picture to them of my role as mom.
More tomorrow friends! :)
