So Derek, being the amazing husband and father that he is, was trying so hard to keep the girls happy so that we could get our pictures....and me being the frustrated mommy and wife that I am was getting so aggravated at him and the girls because all they wanted to do was play. I left upset and disappointed sure that their were going to be no good pictures.
Then she brings me the pictures and this is what I get:
Talk about amazing ( at least in my opinion) photos! These are so true to my daughter and husband. Tickles, kisses, and spinning...they do all of these all the time. I love these photos and the story behind them ( hence the title) :)
I did my journaling in yellow, cause while I wanted to tell the story behind these pictures, I still wanted the main focus to be on the pictures, and I felt that any other color would compete too much with the softer background and elements.
I also kept the majority of the layout very simple, since I had such a large cluster of embellishments in the top right corner. The inspiration behind that came from this beauty here:
I love the inspiration at Polkadot Door Design, I am usually just a silent follower, but this inspired me so much that I had to play along this time. They extended their deadline until the 25th, so if this photo inspires you , head over and get all the info and play along! :)
Just a few quick notes:
