Robin - I love it! but I think you need to add some journaling to the bottom of the page. capture this moment in time, his love for walks, in your words as well as your pictures (and you know how much I love your pictures!)

and I'm gonna have to drive up there and smack you if you don't do a paper page soon!!! Wink

Journaling is where I struggle the MOST with scrapping...Where I put the date in, is where you can journal...ugh.. I just can't journal to save my life:rolleyes:
what about doing something like bullet points? hmmmm..that day was also the first time he ever wore rainboots..loved jumping in the puddles..picking up about 6000 rocks:rolleyes: (ok, not 6000, but you KWIM) ok it's almost 1AM and I'm rambling..:D

I would do it more like a story. "Ryan loves to walk. He'd walk all day if he could, and rain never stops him. In fact, rain inspires him to jump. My son, the puddle jumper! He's a collector too, I lost count of all of the rocks he gathered this day."

I don't think you need to say it's the first day he wore the boots, but you could if you wanted to.

It really is an awesome l/o, Robin. I agree w/ Gwen though that some kind of narrative is needed to finish it off.

It's good to see you posting - I just love seeing your photos and l/o!

Best,
GiGi

Great photos! And the page is perfect for them Smile I agree with the journalling though - the hardest part of scrapping!

I love the colors you chose to go with your pictures. They are great. Your photos are so nice and refreshing.

I think the idea of journaling is great, but if you don't it is okay too. It is really up to you if you want to or not. I think you will appreciate the journaling more in a couple of years when you are looking back at these though.

LOVE it! I adore the colors and your photography skills are improving! WTG! I think it looks fine without journaling, but it would still look great with journaling! GL!

I love the page, it looks really good and the paper co-ordinates well with the pictures. I struggle with journaling as well, I have many lo's just sitting around that would be done if I would just do the journaling. Smile
