LM #181 - Keep Calm & Swim

I had fun doing this layout.  I'm not a huge fan of being in pictures, but when I showed my daughter who is now 6, the completed page she said, "that's you and me? Thank you!"  I can probably count on two hands the number of photos that I am in with her.  That is going to change.  For all my girls.

At Lasting Memories this week we are using flowers!  I am not big on embellishments, in fact, I had to raid my 8 year old's supplies to even find flowers.


I found inspiration from the following blogs:
Challenge YOUrself:  Keep Calm 
Scrap Our Stash: Layering
Stuck?!: Sketch
Scrappy Friends: Colour challenge
Little Scrap Pieces: Linky Party


Thanks for stopping by!

  30. funny that you had to raid your childers stash to find flowers, but how you used them is fantastic.

  31. I'm the same, Darcy. I just don't like being in the pics, happy behind the camera lol but I have learned that I need to be once in awhile! I love that your daughter asked if it was for "you and me", that's adorable! LOL that you had to go in a raid for flowers!

  32. As a scrapper and family photographer, I'm rarely in any pictures. My mom passed about 3 years ago and I then realized how few pictures we had together. Vow to make the change, you won't regret it! Thanks for joining us at Challenge Yourself.
