Me and My Girl (Simple Stories Documented)


I don't get out from behind the camera often enough. When the opportunity presented itself on Alexa's first day of school, I didn't waste any time. The bonus is, I actually love the photo. :)

When I work with monochromatic collections (in this case Simple Stories Documented) I like to add in a pop of color (or two). In this case, I decided to go with red and a bit of pink. I think it makes the page look more contemporary even though it's a vintage collection. How about you? Do you keep your pages monochromatic or do you add a complementary color to the mix?

  12. That's a nice photo of the two of you. I know what you mean...I seldom appear in my scrapbooks, since I'm usually the one behind the camera. I need to make an effort to get into the shots a little more often.
