Isn't it crazy how quickly time passes us by? Ever since I had my girls it seems that time goes by quicker than ever before. I wanted a layout to document how quickly my youngest daughter's infant stage has passed by and how quickly she is growing into an active toddler with her own little unique personality. For this particular layout, I hid my journaling on a little card behind the photo since the design didn't lend itself to journaling. I loved the bright, fun papers from the Three Bugs In A Rug's Celebrate line and couldn't wait to use them!

Supplies:

Step One:
While I used the heart-shaped scalloped Bazzill cardstock, any regular cardstock will do.

Cut a thin strip of patterned paper (I used stripes for this strip) and adhere towards the center and left-hand side of the heart-shaped cardstock. Place your photograph partially over the strip and adhere. Place the Heidi Swapp Bling strip directly under the photograph.

Step Two:
I love flourishes and stars so for this layout I used the Maya Road chipboard flourishes and stars. Simply trace your patterned paper to fit your flourishes and your star, cut out, adhere and sand as desired. Once you have your pieces covered, adhere to the page, tucking the flourishes a little bit under the star to make the star 'pop' off the page.

Step Three:
Now it's time for the title work! I used a combination of Heidi Swapp Silhouette Words and Making Memories Tiny Alphas. Simply adhere the silhouette 'enjoy' to the photograph and then use the tiny alphas to spell out 'each moment' to the right of the flourishes, directly above the striped paper strip.

Step Four:
For a little added sparkle and fun, I used Stickles glitter glue and traced over the letters of the silhouette 'enjoy.'

Step Five:
Again, I pulled out the Stickles and this time I traced the outline of my star with it.

Step Six:
I adhered a Queen & Co. letter 'a' to the center of my star to stand for Addison's initial.

This layout is super simple to create but has a little bit of extra texture and sparkle. I can't wait to see what you create!
