Some of my favourite artwork memories that I have photographed have been:
- The first time Rory wrote his name
- The first time both my boys drew a person
- Beautiful paintings or artwork that is something a bit unusual or out of the ordinary (such as a pretty string painting that Rory did with lots of bright colours)
Not only do I get a kick out of seeing their development but they love looking at the pictures in the book and noticing that their drawings are improving.
The drawing of the person in the above layout has a funny little story behind it. You can read all about it on my beautiful cousin Em's blog, You learn something new every day. It is such a great blog, I check in every day to read her latest post. She posts a new 'life lesson' every day and they usually make me laugh out loud! Go check out her blog if you'd like a good read!
This layout used the "Freshly Elegant" digital kit by kimbroedelet graphics and designs. You can find her blog here. I really love this kit, the colours are great and the elements are beautiful - this kit could be used for so many different types of layouts. I have actually also used it for an elegant page with photos of my Grandparents when they were younger.
I used a digital template to create this page but I cannot for the life of me remember where it came from. If you recognise the template then please let me know so that I can give credit to the designer.
I have been a bit slow on the card making this last week or two. I have two boys who love to 'craft' whenever I venture near my scrapping desk and so most of the time my good intentions to create cards have become impromptu children's card making classes! Here is a sample of what my boys have created. They made these cards for their friend George's 3rd birthday. Perhaps I should enter them into the Birthday Sundaes challenge?!!
Created by Rory - 4 1/2 years old
Created by Hunter - 2 1/2 years old
Beautiful aren't they!!
Thanks for looking - here's hoping I'm back soon with some more cards to share.
