Love @ First Sight
Another layout today (this has been a layout heavy month for me!) for my other current favorite place for sketches, Elle's Studio.
I've scrapped lots of photos of Carina's birth/first few days for Carina, but I was convicted recently that I haven't done any pages for Ellie. And the fact is, Carina's arrival probably affected her more than anyone else.
We have been so blessed to have two girls who really love each other. Of course we have normal sibling rivalry issues, but Ellie truly relishes the role of big sister and has since that first day. She's always been protective of Carina. I remember going to a birthday party for one of Ellie's friends when Carina was 2 months old. One of the other moms offered to hold her for a while, and I was more than willing to oblige. Ellie came over and wanted to know why someone else was holding Carina, and then went over and stood next to this woman until she gave her back....
Anyway, I had all my Elle's tags out and was planning to use a lot of them on this layout and create more layers, but after fussing over it for a while, I felt like the pictures just really told the story themselves. I love the kind of CAS, soft look to this layout.
Thanks for coming by, and don't forget to scroll down for a chance to win some candy.
