You at 7 Layout

Every year I take photos of my kids. Every year I like to take one of my favorite photos from that session and scrap it with some notes about who they are at that age. Today I have a You at 7 layout from one of those sessions.

I usually like to wait for just the right paper to come along to scrap these types of photos, so I usually jot down some thoughts about their personality around their birthday, and then stash those notes with the photos until I find the right paper. 

My Mind's Eye Jubilee Tangerine has been out for a while, but I just stumbled across it a few weeks ago. I knew it would be perfect for scrapping by boys' most recent annual photos. It's a bold collection that has lots of whimsical prints mixed in.

The main focus of this layout is on the photo and the journaling, so I kept the embellishment groupings simple and close to the focal points. All of the paper layering, all of the embellishments, draw your eye in to the main pieces of the layout.

I love this snapshot of my youngest at seven. How do you capture milestones?
