When I saw this paper line by Echo Park called For the Record, I absolutely fell in love with it! I made a pact with myself that if I were to buy it that I would use it right away, not file it away in my absolutely love it and don't want to use it pile. I found this old photo of me from when I was a child. It was my Grandma's favorite photo of me and I must admit I love it too in spite of the 19070's style jumper I was wearing! Over the years the little fishing boy has changed colors and since my Grandma's passing I do not know where he ended up. I sure wish I had thought to ask for him when my Grandpa was going through things but alas I did not. I sure hope that where ever he went, there is another little girl telling him secrets!
The "remember this" strip was actually cut from the border sheet but I didn't want it to lay flat so I randomly placed some pop dots under it to give it a wavy appearance.
I wanted the year to have some dimension. I used the stickers from the collections sticker sheet and then covered them with 2 coats of glossy accents (allow drying in between). Now they look like they are under glass! I also snuck a little glossy accents onto the birds eye! Sure hope you enjoyed this layout. Both the layout and the memories make me smile!
