I'm Janet. I was born and raised in Minnesota. In 2002 I met my dear hubby and in 2009, after a long wait we had our first baby girl, Annelyse. Then in February of 2012 we were surprised with the early birth of our youngest daughter, Sophia who was born three months premature. When I'm not taking care of my crazy, sweet, spunky, girls, I run my photography and design businesses. I must have ran across pixel scrapper early on when it was first started. I downloaded a few things but then got busy taking care of my first baby girl. Now I'm coming back and am very thankful for the resources that you provide. It's tough to find quality, free of charge, digital papers, templates, and assets that can be used for commercial purposes.
I wanted to find a way to mark a year's growth for each of my girls. So, after getting inspiration from a layout on a blog over Christmas (they used it to display winter photos - so wish I had noted the blog so that I could give credit), this is what I came up with. Each year I'm going to attempt to put together one of these initial layouts for both of my little sweethearts. Hopefully it will be a way to track their growth and how their interests/skills change over time.
Text reads... Annelyse Melissa three years old loves her baby sister ~ enjoys playing with her ponies, barbies, babies, and tea set ~ can balance and hop on one foot, run like the wind and hide like a ninja ~ would happily drink ‘Daddy Coffee’ 24 hours a day, & loves to eat veggies (especially carrots) ~ loves reading with mommy and daddy, being outside, going to the park in our back yard, and going for walks ~ her favorite TV shows are ‘Infested’ & ‘Scooby Doo’ ~ She enjoys watching any and all Disney films ~ she adores tickling her baby sister and teaching her all that she knows. We love our big girl more and more each day and are so proud of her!
The background paper was created by Courtneys Digiscrappin' and is part of the freebie Collaboration Kit called Shiny Happy People. The paper was recolored by me to suit the layout. The kit can be found here. http://theheartisticproject.com/blog/shiny-happy-people-sponsors-collaboration-kit/
