November is National Adoption Month, and my family has been twice blessed by the gift of adoption. (To read our adoption story, just visit my blog). I used the gorgeous "Dear Diary" kit to create this layout about the day we legally and officially became a "Forever Family". I love using a grid design and creating little vignettes to go along with my story. The patterned papers I pulled to go along with my photos are by Crate Paper, Lily Bee Designs, We R Memory Keepers and October Afternoon.
Here's a close-up of my title work...I used the heart brad by Basic Grey as the dot of my "i".
I cut the "4" card from a patterned paper by Crate Paper and accented it with a Crate Paper sticker and Jillibean Soup pin. That gold glitter frame by Making Memories was perfect to highlight our family photo.
I applied a Hambly flower rub-on to a Crate Paper sticker and placed a green Basic Grey brad through it.
"Dear Diary" is perfect for those family photos!
Until next time,
