Ch-ch-changes

The air is full of change right now--one day it's hot and muggy, and the next I'm reaching for my coat and wondering why it won't zip up properly! Life change is in the air, too. Ellie started a new class at daycare (kid is NOT a fan of change) and my due date is inching ever closer. I'm excited about meeting this little lady/guy, but it's also bittersweet because I'm going to miss this family of three, this time with just my baby girl.

So with all of that fall and change in mind, I thought I'd share a layout I created with fall colors in mind. I used a fun photo of Ellie, and lots of browns, blues and oranges.


I love all of the gold accents lately--they really warm up a layout and spice things up!


I dont' think I'll ever tire of paper flowers...



I used some American Crafts on this layout (Thickers and flowers), Elle's Studio (the journaling strip and date card), Studio Calico (the ampersand, and some of the patterned paper), and more. It was so much fun to put together!


On this layout, I wrote about the changes going on in Ellie's life right now, and my hope for her to move through them smoothly.

What was the greatest change YOU ever experienced?

  1. Hi Keshet! I felt exactly the same way before my third was born. Everything felt in limbo, and there was this very clear sense that everything was about to change! In the end, Lucy fit into our family like the last puzzle piece, and almost all the changes were for the best! Except for not having a third arm to tote them all around at the same time, that was rough for a bit, haha!!
