Hello and Happy New Year! Beckie here :) I know, I’m a bit late with my greeting – but this is my very first post of the year and I just couldn’t begin today’s post without saying that first! I had a wonderful holiday break – I got to spend lots of time with the family and I even had time to read and play with my camera quite a bit! One of the joys of the kids getting older, I suppose – a little time for ME every now and then, since the kids entertain themselves a bit more! Anyhow, I’m happy to be back and eager to bring this week’s little slice of inspiration…the Layout of the Week! You won’t be disappointed by this one – it’s a totally gorgeous layout created by whites19 called “Kairos“.
There were so many WONDERFUL layouts in the gallery this week and, as usual, I had a very hard time making my selection! But after I read the text I knew this was the layout for me :) My scrapbook is filled with pages of bright, happy, smiling faces…but our lives are so much more than that. I have been thinking that this year I want to journal more and document REAL life (something I’ll cover soon in an Inspiration post!) – and this layout by whites19 perfectly nails the theme of what I hope to create for myself this year. A lot of the good-amazing-incredible moments and maybe even a few of the bad ones…but a whole lot of the reality that is our lives <3 Read the text to see what I mean (there’s a link in her layout credits!). Whether you’re a parent or not, there’s an interesting perspective there to be gained.
And, of course, in true whites19 fashion…the layout itself is a stunner :) All that delicious text…and the cute little hearts thrown in there to break it up. The stitching around the edges and the perfectly delicate flowers and elements around the border. And the title in the center with the photos in the letters – perfection.
I’ll see you back on Wednesday, but be sure to stop by tomorrow when Kim brings you a little New Year’s organization inspiration!
