Project - Keep Calm And Sled On
This is a project that I created for my beautiful daughter. It's a play on the theme of Then and Now.
I see a lot of myself in my little girl when I was her age. When things don't go according to plan, or as she believes they should go, she gets very frustrated. This was much more of an issue when she was younger, but there are days, for instance on this one, when we went sledding, when everything falls apart for her in an instant.
I tend to scrap as a method of writing love letters in a sense, to my kids. I used this opportunity with my pictures and journaling to let her know that she can miss out on so much if she lets things bother her to such a degree that she gives up. I wanted to show her that I know how hard it is to “let go” of having things perfect and just go with the flow. My husband and son are much better at this. While the focus is on her in the center of my page, I took an image where she and her brother were having a ball sledding, getting along and having fun, to illustrate how much more fun she would have if she chose to decide to let some things go. It's a bit of a sideways twist on Then and Now, but it was something I really want her to visualize for herself in years to come. :)
One of my favorite new little products on this page are the Prima gems. Their facets are so unique and the matte finish is just gorgeous. I am smitten with these little gems, especially on this snowy page that I created here. So cute.
Thanks so much for looking!
