Real Life Happens

I absolutely adore this picture of my son. It shows what real life actually looks like with a baby. It's not all perfect, and I love showcasing that in my albums too. 

I used a sketch from Stick It Down for this layout. I loved the simple single-page sketch. I followed it pretty closely, adding or changing this where I wanted too. I used my new Noel Mignon kit for this layout.

Sticking with the "life is messy" theme I had going in my journaling, I ripped the edges of the layered paper, and inked them for emphasis. A bit of washi tape and some simple enamel dots was all that was needed here.

I love using multiple alphas on my pages. I like how the title turned out.

This wood 'Love' was perfect for this page. Some more washi tape, a simple gold heart, and some dots, and that was all the embellishment this page called for. I love how simple and sweet it turned out.

Thank you for looking over my layout. Please leave me some blog love and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
