This layout has turned out to be one of my all time favs. It features a photo, that no, is not perfectly shot, in fact it is a bit grainy and old, but it captures one of those precious memories that brings tears to this mother's eyes. It shows me and my son, at the sweet age of 5 on the beach. We are collecting shells, and I am holding one up for him to see. You can see the anticipation in his body language and his hurry to get to where I am. What seems like a simple moment in time, is actually a precious moment in time, me making memories with my son, and my sweet husband who had the sense to capture it with that one click. I titled this one "Fragile", because that is how I feel when I look at it. Like time is a fragile thing that each of us must "handle with care".
I created the corrugated background using the same Grunged Up Corrugated Board Technique that I used on my "Footprints" layout, but on a larger scale. If you would like to view the tutorial for that technique, please check it out at the Scraps Of Darkness Blog or through the YouTube link on my blog.
Oh, if I could only go back to that time and know what I know now. I would hold onto those moments forever, but unfortunately they are gone, but through the amazing art of scrapbooking and with fabulous kits like the one's Melinda puts together for us, I can hold on to a piece of those moments. I really appreciate you stopping by for reveal, and hope that you have some time this month to capture time onto a page, and create something you love! Hugs, ~Renea
