Seven Years Old

I have another layout to show you today.
Each year I do a layout of my girls on their birthdays. I use a picture taken of them on the day and then list different facts and things about them in the journalling. It is a really fun way to capture who they are at a particular age and also to capture how they change from year to year.

This is Bridget at seven years old. The picture was taken at her family birthday party. She had gotten all dressed up - wearing her pearls, a headband that matched her dress, her watch, and a bracelet. When I showed her this layout the other day she said to me that she was sorry that she had worn her watch (the purple on her wrist) since it did not really match with her outfit - she is definitely a budding fashionista.
As for supplies, I used papers and embellishments from the Sweet Girl line by Echo Park.

Are there any yearly layouts that you do?


  1. Oh this is lovely! Such a pretty page and full of memories to cherish. Love this idea of recording your girls' milestones like this.

  2. What a pretty picture of your daughter for the the scrap book and her birthday. It looks like it would be fun. Take care.

    1. Thanks Julie. It is a lot of fun to look back and see how she ahs changed over the years.
