Every year on Bridget’s birthday, I wonder aloud to myself how she can be growing up so quickly. Eight years old already; it seems like only yesterday that I was going into her room after nap time to lift her out of the crib....and now....goodness, it is so true when people tell you that the time goes by quickly...they are not kidding.

Here is my girl on her eighth birthday:
My husband took this picture when we were out for lunch to celebrate her special day, and I think it is an absolutely amazing picture; it captures her perfectly.
I used several patterned papers from the Porcelain line by Basic Grey on this layout, and especially love how using a patterned paper for the base of the page looks. I wanted to keep the focus on my picture so I kept my embellishments to a minimum.

This is the last layout for my 2014 album (yes, I am feeling a great sense of accomplishment). I’ll do a post soon about how I put my albums together, so stay tuned for that. Until then, happy scrapping!


  1. Fabulous photo, fabulous page. And looking so grown up too.

    1. Thank you Jane. She is growing up so fast.....despite my pleas that she slow down.

  2. Gorgeous picture and gorgeous page! Love the purple!!
