Quick and Easy Layout Idea

I’m back today with another quick and easy layout idea. With my scrapping time limited right now, I am always on the lookout for quick ways to record our memories. I especially want to remember the little things such as the ages and stages of my kids. I know all too well that the sweet little things they do and say now will change in the blink of an eye. I also know all too well how easily I forget these little things. Life goes on and I forget.

A few weeks ago I went hiking with my husband and two of our kids. At the end of the hike, we stopped to rest at this brick wall. The kids were having fun posing against it.

I decided to take a few of my daughter alone. She is growing up so fast and as a middle child, she can sometimes get lost in the shuffle. I wanted to take a few minutes to make sure I focused on her.

After I edited the photos, I realized I had the opportunity for a super-simple layout that would capture all the little eight-year-old things about my sweet girl. I simply used the brick in the background for a canvas to write words or phrases that describe who she is right now.

The layout took me no more that five minutes and yet I saved such an important moment in her life. I want to take all the kids back and do this for everyone!
