I can hardly believe it. I know I say this all the time, but seriously, where does the time go??? Only two more months left of my baby being in high school. That’s just crazy!

April. We’re at April already!

I gotta figure out how to make time slow down. If it can speed up, surely we can slow it down–just a little. Right?

I can only imagine that must be what Nichol was thinking when she created this page of her cute little daughter–who isn’t so little anymore!

[ Shapes | Educationish (number square) / Label It (frame) / Here Kitty, Kitty (title) / Sunflower Freebie ]

I love how Nichol used the numbers within her blocks! That’s such a wonderful look. And using the labels as a frame too? adore.

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I loved the title from the Here Kitty kit and thought that it would work for subjects other than pets when I came across these older photos of my daughter being a messy eater. I wanted to use a bunch of photos from the pre-digital era so I ended up cropping them. A couple of the photos I wanted to use were from a previous layout created years ago and to make them work with the new design, I resized the label frame to fit over the photo. So that I wouldn’t have to cut around these already small photos I also cut the frame from a 3×3 square of patterned paper, popped the small square photo behind it, then layered the frame shadow and frame on top. Easy peasy!

For all the areas on the “border” of this page that didn’t have a photo, I used 3×3 squares of patterned paper. To add interest I die cut the numbers square from the same colors of patterned paper and from solid cardstock and adhered them on top of each. It gives subtle texture and adds interest to the frame without overpowering the photos. :)

And now, some sad news. After 2 1/2 years of an amazing ride, I’ve decided to close my doors, so to speak. I appreciate all your support and wish you all the best!

Okay, I just had to do that. I haven’t done an April Fools joke in forever. Don’t worry, all is alive and kicking in Bradford World. :)
