New Year pages

I was lucky enough to spend January 2 at Archiver's, where I got a start on a few layouts. Here's three that I finished (all of these layouts I made using Studio Calico's December kit. I always try to use up my kits every month before I get the new one.):
I pulled a photo from this year after I asked Rowan what his earliest memory was, and he told me what I wrote on the page: "Meeting my brother for the first time." Wonderful. Lots of misting using Mister Huey Custard and maybe Pony, If I remember right. I also added a stitched border, which I like to do on a neutral background.
 I found the quotation on Pinterest, and since I'd taken this photo on Christmas (I know, it looks like fall outside) of my husband and me, I thought it would be a great sentiment for the page. I misted with the same colors on this page.
This might be my favorite. I do so many Lego pages, I'm running out of titles! Here he told me he wanted to work in the Lego store as a grown up, and I had to put that on a page. Fortunately I had the perfect photo, though I'm not sure what's under his eye? A cat hair, maybe. Our grey and white cat also left a hair on the first layout, I think.

I like the touches of green on this layout. I think it adds an unexpected touch to the color combo, making it more playful. Goodness knows, if a word describes my boy, it's "Playful."

LOVE all your LOs! Love what your son said about his first memory -- adorable. Don't worry, I always seem to end up with cat hair on my LOs too!

You always have the most wonderful pages Jenny! You know, I never thought about how many Lego pages you do until you mentioned it. I guess it's kinda like me and my strawberry pages, we are uber sensitive to the quantity of them :)
