Sweet Little Moments
Can I say that I love all the patterned paper from the 5th & Frolic collection by DearLizzy? The color and pattern on each paper just make my heart goes pitter patter. While in the process of making this layout, I kept reminding myself to save each and every piece of scrap left from this precious collection of mine :) The chipboard pieces are from Neapolitan collection, also by DearLizzy. I had them for a while but never gotten around to use it until now. I also had a thing for splatter ink these days and it really does add some interesting details to my otherwise plain layout. I used to be hesitant about using cardstock as my layout background but ever since I discovered this fun technique, cardstock has been my go to choice.
This picture holds a special place in my heart for a couple of reason. First, it was candid....we were totally unprepared and I wasn't even aware of it. Second, Abby was smiling happily. Third, she was actually crying really loud before the smile took over. We did a mini photoshoot at a friend's house and while halfway through, Abby fell and knocked her head hard on the floor. She wailed like there's no tomorrow and I quickly picked her up and comfort her. It was when my friend decided to capture this precious moment of us. It reminded me of how much I love my daughter and that I would always protect her and be by her side whenever possible. It is sweet little moments like this that I would want to remember forever.
