Shellie: My favorite childhood Easter photo - 12x12 Layout
I actually made this layout on the Easter holiday weekend this year. I recorded a video of it which I wanted to be my first ever youtube video but haven't gotten my act together with the editing of that video so this layout has been sitting unposted since then. Shame on me.
I wanted to do a paper layout and double-clicked on my Photos file on my computer and just hanging out in the folder was a scan of this image. This is me and two of my cousins from Easter at my Uncle's house about a billion years ago. (Okay, probably like 37?) I'm not positive how old I actually am in this picture but I'd guess between 2 and 4. That's me on the right with the bowl cut. That big basket in front of me was my Easter basket my entire life until I think it finally just disintegrated from old age.
I'm not sure why exactly, but this has always been one of my favorite photos from my childhood. I just love it. So I decided it was the perfect time to scrap it since it was Easter weekend and all.
I started by fussy cutting a bunch of those butterflies. I generally enjoy fussy cutting so it wasn't an annoyance to me. The rest of the page, being fairly simple, didn't take a long time to come together. I think the most time consuming part was deciding where to place each individual sequin so they looked random. Irony, right? Haha. The small square frame and "favorite" script word are both by Heidi Swapp and the sequins and flair came in a Scraptastic kit once upon a time and have been in my stash.
I still want to try to get the video up for this project and if I do, I'll add it in to this post.
I've found lately that the idea of scrapping old photos from my childhood actually quite appeals to me so I will likely be doing more of it. Those are the memories I want to keep.
Thanks for stopping in to visit. I believe that Gina scrap-lifted this idea and should be posting her interpretation of this layout soon.
See you soon.
