Nine Years Layout

I'm continuing to work through my stash of paper. I'm not a saver (when it comes to patterned paper), but some times I have so much of it that I accidentally end up with a huge stash anyways. My project today is a nine years layout of my younger son using American Crafts True Stories.

If you follow my blog, you know that I like to take my kids' photos every year and then do a layout about who they are at that age. They grow and change so much, it's kind of fun to look back and see what favorite things have changed or stayed the same over time and how they're growing as people. 

As far as layout details go: I've always loved wood accents, but I've never been great at using them on layouts. This is probably the larges wood embellishment I've ever used. It worked out great for this layout. I left it unaltered, and just added some enamel dots right around the 9.

I can't believe this nine years layout is the last single digit layout I'll make for either of my kids. Do you mark the years any special way in your scrapbooking?
