I tell ya. I think it takes a special kind of person to do daycare…or tending of any kind. I had enough on my plate with just my own three and work. But our sweet Laura not only does beautiful work for KBS, but Bella Blvd and she does daycare.
I do not know how she does it all.
I believe it is definitely a labor of love.
Look at this beautiful page she made about her ‘day job’ and one little munchkin that requires a bit more attention than the others. ;)
Don’t you just love the sweetness of it all? Love the colors and how the title just pops. And the little stamp accent? swoon.
Here’s what Laura has to say:
I recently made a comment to my oldest daughter about how I don’t take that many photos of my daycare kids anymore, and she said “just all of your rocking chair photos with Derek”. I said that I take so many of those because I’m stuck in the rocking chair with him all the time and I get bored, and then said that I should probably print them all out and make a layout about it. And that’s exactly what I did, as I knew it would be perfect for my next layout to share here.
I started by collaging all of my photos together, using a template from Kerri’s Storyboard: Instagram Style kit. I tend to take photos on my phone in the square format, for whatever reason, and I have also shared each one of these photos on my Instagram, so the rows of square little photos were just what I needed. I ended up finding twelve photos, so I arranged them by date taken, leaving three spaces of the template empty, which is where I planned up placing my journaling.
As I browsed thru Kerri’s kits for a good title, I came up with several different options. I ended up going with “a labor of love”, because I don’t think I would be willing to spend so much time rocking this adorable baby boy, and helping him sleep, if I didn’t love him a ton ;) I also did a teeny, tiny amount of stamping with a few of Kerri’s stamp sets, adding the “absolutely” to go along with my title.
That makes me want …. wellllll … a grandkid, maybe. My cat won’t let me hold it like that. My dog would definitely let me do that, but I don’t need 120 pound ‘child’ on my lap. ;)
Beautiful job Laura!
