Challenge #6 is the Iron Scrapper Challenge, and Kai gave us this quote to use somewhere on the layout
Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?
Plus we had to use some symbolism or picture of a bird and sunshine on the project as well.
When I read the quote, the perfect photo jumped into my head! And then the layout came together pretty quickly afterward :)
I love that photo! Mike took it a Mother's Day last year and it just makes me smile :) But if you click on the layout and look at the journaling, you can see the direction my story took. When I see Erin in moments like this, I sometimes wish I could be a kid again! Free of all the grown up responsibilities I am faced with every day ;)
But I had my time to enjoy my childhood. And I think I did! I really do. So my hope is that both of my children will be able to do the same and not grow too big, too fast. I want them to enjoy their childhood :)
For the sun, I misted my pinked circle stamp by Studio Calico. But I also used a journal spot by Elle's Studio to type the quote on. The symbol on there made me think of the sun. My bird is a cute little bluebird from my October Afternoon Sidewalks sticker sheet.
Do you ever wish you could be a kid again? :)
