On the Cusp of Turning Eleven (Simple Stories Fabulous)


Alexa is chomping at the bit to go to middle school and she's equally excited to be turning eleven. What is she hoping her eleventh year will bring? A cell phone, being able to stay home alone and being able to use the stove/oven unsupervised (not sure about these two, but we'll work on it, LOL). She's actually shading her eyes from the sun in this photo, but to me it also looks like she's scouting out what's ahead so I thought it was a good one to use for this layout. I used mostly Simple Stories Fabulous on here, but the alphas are Bella Blvd. and the frame is by My Mind's Eye.

Have a great Monday!

  2. Such a great layout! I love that line by Simple Stories
    Her photo really pops and stands out, too!

    My son is turning ten this year, and I am already going back and forth on what he is "ready" for. I have a feeling it will only get harder as he gets older :)
