The journaling (“Childhood smiles are the backbone of many a future dream”) on this page is a thought that I've many times over the last few years. It speaks to the fact that oftentimes the things that brought us joy as children help to inspire and shape who, and what, we become as adults. Yet there is also much about childhood that becomes more like a fairytale as we grow up and take on adult rolls, and as such I thought it made sense to pair a photo of little me (I don't think I can be much older than about 2.5 in that shot) with these beautiful, delightfully whimsical papers from Graphic 45's recent line ("Once upon a Springtime").
Generally speaking I'm not the biggest fan of cutting images out of photos, but sometimes it can work well and I actually quite like how cropping myself away from the (very distracting - there was a blue swing set and a dark brown fence) background turned out here (plus it was fun to position the photo so that it looks like the fairy on the paper is softly kissing the top of my head).
