This Is the Life

Sharing this layout here today simply makes me happy. This is Jamie and there is so much about this that speaks to me. I love these girls so much and their relationship to each other. The middle girl is my niece and the other two my daughters. And can they create a day big time for themselves.

These girls had been hanging out together all day. And here it was early evening and they were not nearly through. These memories for them will be huge later in their years...these lazy days of going non-stop with whatever adventure finds them next. So the photo had to be huge too.

I thought a large photo would balance out well with lots of little details pointing to the story.

Cloud9 again was a great way to tell this story. The collection is quintessential summer to me. It has this celebratory feel and highlights the happy right now of a moment. I added a bit of glitter elements from my stash, but the Cloud9 definitely takes the stage sharing the delightful and lighthearted moment found in this photo.
