Here's a simple little scrapbook page I made a few years ago. The photo is of our daughters when they were little and outside sitting on the back steps. I love this picture and it's one of my all time favorites.
They're only 17 months apart and when the girls were this age, they had a language of their own. Our younger daughter, Tracy, was hard for us to understand as we didn't speak "that language." We went about a year where we didn't want to separate them for any period of time because we frequently needed Sarah to translate for us! Tracy would talk to us, but we couldn't always understand what she said. That's when we'd ask Sarah to translate. It was always so funny to see such a little girl get "that look" of exasperation, sigh, and tell us what her sister had just said. She couldn't believe she had such tiresome parents!
To make this page, begin with your photo. This one is 4" X 6", but I didn't want to use the entire 6" width. Select a few colors from the photo to work with – in this case, Tracy's shirt. I mounted it onto a 6" X 6" piece of card stock and added a strip of Designer Series Paper, a strip of coordinating solid color card stock and a stamped & punched flower. The stamps used are retired, but that verse was perfect for this picture. This page could also be made digitally using My Digital Studio. At ages 24 & 25, they're still good friends and that makes a mothers' heart happy!
