Isn't this such a joyful photo of a mother and daughter? This is Jane and her daughter, Candace. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Jane in person yet, but when I saw this photo I just had to smile. I want to laugh with her!! What fun!
I love their expressions, I love the frothy blue of the clothes and the texture of the sand. Oh, I so wanted to make a glorious layout from this photo! But alas, I was tied up in moving this past month and I couldn't get my creative mojo going. But now just 12 days in the new house, I am unpacked and realize the advantage of unpacking and discovering all the long lost delights of scrap supplies long forgotten. I completed two Lucky 13 layouts this weekend, and both benefitted from the "oh, look what I have" revelations of my scrap unpacking! LOL!
First I found this jelly tag that reads "a laugh is a smile that bursts".....perfect for this photo! Then I found some buttons, brads and crystal beads that I loved the look of. A little stitching and a great orange color to offset the blue, and I was so loving this layout!
I hope Jane and Candace love it too.....
And, by the way, I so want to know what you two are laughing about in this photo.
I did it ! I finished Western States - I will post my story as soon I am thinking clearly..Thanks
