Today's page is one that I made a few months ago. I've used one of Authentique's latest collections--'Playful'--for this page. I found this colorful & bright collection to be perfect for documenting memories & events related to children. With this in mind I created a page with a photo of me & my son taken last Fall.
The title of this page represents the feelings towards my son. Call me selfish, but I want my little guy to stay...well, little forever! Please...
Everyday he gets bigger & bigger & while I'm overwhelmed with happiness to see him learn a new word or discover something new about the world around him, I can't help but get sad at the fact that with every passing day he's growing more & more into the man he's going to be one day & in turn he's growing just a bit further away from me. I'm going to have issues 'letting go'! :-) I'm predicting that very early on...
I found this fantastic sketch by The Nifty Pixel that coordinated perfectly with the collection. The sketch is random & askew just like some of the papers in the 'Playful' collection--so it went along just right with the overall theme of my page.
To further decorate the background & give it more of a design--I did a bit of stamping. The stamps consist of splatters, splats & stitched circles.
Behind all my layering & the photos, I've tucked in a small kraft paper bag containing a tag that holds my journaling. I used one of the elements from the 'Playful' collection as my makeshift tag.
