The View

This is my youngest Grand Daughter who is 3.  She kept doing this when ever I would get in the shower at their house.  It started in January and then when I visited a couple months later she kept it up.  I thought she would have forgotten about it.  Oh, no not her.  I knew I had to get pictures and scrap this...  One of those "only a Grandmother could love" faces  It is a simple layout but it captures the exact story I wanted to record.

For the title I mixed Nursery Rhymes font and tiny square alphabets, which I love!   I have an array of colors from many companies, Making Memories, Glitz, Cosmo Cricket and more.  They work so well when you want a longer title and have a smaller space.  Used them to put her name on the word bubble also.  I really like to put the Grand Child's name somewhere on the layout just in case the layouts are around years from now.

I had this idea of a women in the shower.  Now, I look nothing like that but hey one can dream. I cut the girl from Forever Young.  Used frosted vellum over the top.

The shower head and the towel are from Everyday Paper Dolls.  Flocked the towel for a little texture.

 Recording the moments of life are the most important part of scrapbooking for me.  Not just a photo but the whole story that goes with it.   I have included a blow up of the journaling.
I know some people hate to journal but I love it.  I use my laptop and print my text out on a piece of cheap paper then I use a removable adhesive to place the paper I want to print on over the previously printed cheap paper
