In this day and age of selfies, a great many more photos can be–and are–taken of ourselves. Yay! I think the tweens+teens utilize this feature much more than us adults (haha), but I love that more and more are finding themselves in front of the camera because they can.
I love that it helps us to document life more regularly. But what do we do with all these photos?
Well, take a look at what Laura has done with all the children she tends to….her squad.
This is so wonderful that she’s captured all these little people with herself! They grow up so fast! And for her, they come and go. What a great way to remember them all! I also adore her color choices and the mix of flower mediums!
Here’s what Laura has to say:
I was scrolling thru my Instagram photos the other day, and came across a photo of myself with several of my daycare kids. I had written something about how I ever had a “squad”, these little people would be my squad. I’ve been better about getting in the photos with the kids here and there, and I knew that some of those photos would make a great layout.
I used a template from Kerri’s Storyboard #1 kit to collage my photos together. I left one space in the template empty, knowing that I wanted to add either my title or my journaling there instead of another photo. I simply trimmed a piece of cardstock to fit over that area on the template once it was printed and adhered it in place.
I used the Weathered Door [all] kit to create my title, die cutting it from blue patterned paper, and completed the title with a few alpha stickers and Kerri’s One Fine Day stamps. I also wanted to add a little something along the left side of my photo collage, so I die cut a flower border from the Borderlines #1 kit, and tucked it under the edge of the collage.
Perfect all around!
