Brothers


So what do you do with all the "random" pictures you take? Well, I decided that I would just do one spread of my favorites. These were from our time in Hawaii, 2002-2003. I think that these pictures paint a very clear picture about how life was when we lived out there. Obviously I had total and complete control of the situation.

I liked it so much that I will probably do something like this for every year. Not only of the kids together but one spread for each child. Sometimes there just aren't enough to do an entire spread...but I think this way you will get a snap shot of them for the year. So, we'll see how it goes. I do have plenty of random pictures that need something done with them.

mary, brilliant idea. You can bet I will copy that one. There are always extra pictures that don't quite work in a layout. Good thinking. I had to double click on the layout to see all the pictures up close. Too cute. Wish we could share in person!!!!

I love this idea...now I have a place to put all my random pictures for the year. I really enjoyed looking at your boys when they were little.

Mary are you using stickers for your lettering or is it magic Mary and her super sissors?

The Seaquist Family said...

Yep...just me and my magic scissors called EXACTO. I did finally invest in a Quickutz squeeze, but I just didn't have an alphabet that fit how I wanted it to...so back to the exacto knife. Guess all those years of art class are finally paying off.

Love it, Mary. You're right, it gives you a more comprehensive look at every day life. I love how you combined all those photos.

How many alphabets for your squeeze do you have? You must be amazing with an exacto! Awesome pages!
