This layout includes two photos from almost exactly 2 years ago. It marked my Dad's 65th birthday and the coincided with a very trying time in our lives. My father and sister's birthday's are only a few weeks apart so they allowed us to have two celebrations at a time when we really needed it. I decided to do this layout and another to tell a few stories of photos that I haven't scrapped. It was also a break from working on the baby's album. I used a really old Cocoa Daisy kit and remembered to write down the supplies this time. I even used the stamp that came in kit. I cut the stamped image in half and used part of the label under "celebrate" and the other half at the top of the page. I sometimes don't feel like dragging out ink and stamps while working on a page but I really like that I can create my own embellishments since I don't tend to buy many. I love my older kits because the product in them is still current in my eyes.
here's a closeup of the title...fun corrugated alphas...
Fast-forward two years...and we are reliving some of the same difficulties again...and looking for ways to celebrate. Which is why sweetpea's birthday was so wonderful a few weeks ago. She brings us all light, joy, and hope. I enjoyed working on this page with all the bright colors and cheerfulness. It helped me.
