Front Row Project Life: Good Times
I was out running errands and when I came home, I found my girls and husband outside in the backyard. I asked them in they were having fun playing in the leaves. My oldest daughter who is five years old looked at me kinda funny and said, "No mom were cleaning up the yard for spring, but we're having fun raking the leaves, you should always have fun while you work" .... she paused... thought for a moment, then said, "because life's too short to be unhappy so we are having fun while we work." Then my youngest daughter looked at her and then me and said, "I'm going to be happy and play in the leaves!" My husband turned up the music and we had a leaf party.
The story was so sweet and pictures so fun I knew I wanted to dedicate an entire spread/insert to the story. I used Becky Higgins Design G & 5x7 horizontal Photo Protectors for my layouts.
I wanted to highlight that my oldest daughter was happiest working and raking the leaves, while my youngest was throwing the leaves and dancing around, so I enlarged a photo of each daughter to a 6x8 to make it the focal point of their respective page. Because there was no spot that size I trimmed the photo in half so I had two 4x6 horizontal photos that fit into the appropriate spaces. I also had more horizontal photos that I wanted to include so I divided both lower vertical 4x6 spaces with my sewing machine using a straight stitch into 3x4 horizontal spaces.
All of the elements used on these pages are from the Project LIfe main kit. I also used both digital printables, the project life digital brush stamps, and the cut files.
