i wanted to share one of the layouts i created for my pebbles design team submission with you today.
i used the may bouquet collection for this layout about my parents. i've never actually scrapbooked about my parents before, and i'm glad i finally took the time. i admit that i'm not great at talking about my feelings or expressing things directly to people. and that also extends to my family. i like to think they know how i feel. but i still think it's nice for them to hear it now and then. and what comes naturally to me is writing. it's how i can best express myself. and i've been like that since i was a kid.
the journaling is short and sweet. we really are so grateful for all that my parents do for us and the girls. we're fortunate that they live just a few blocks away from us. so they're always around to help out. they let the girls go over and go swimming whenever they want. they drive the girls places, when i can't. my mom volunteers with the awana program at the church, and drives the girls to and from every week. they come to all the girls soccer games, school performances, and band concerts. my mom builds me all the furniture pieces that i ask for, and refinishes furniture when i want a new look. my dad makes sure to get joe out golfing every now and then, when he's been working too much. they both put up with our questions and phone calls, when there's something with the house, the yard, or the cars, that we don't know how to handle. i could mention a ton of ways that they are here for us, and help us out. but when you get right down to it, we're just thankful and appreciative. for everything.
i used a mixture of the paper flowers, the pebbles chips, and the epoxy brads to make this fun border. i also added in a few other buttons and brads. i love all the dimension that all the layers add to a layout. i also adhered that chipboard accent in the bottom corner, with large pop dots.
