Ohana means family

I have been working on an album for my niece who will turn one in March. I am trying to keep it simple since that is how her Mom used to scrap. I am leaving out most of the journaling so that my sister can fill it in with her own stories. I am hoping to have it done for her birthday, but we will have to see.

Today's layout is from our vacation this past summer to the beach. It was Sophia's first trip since she was born. My sister had asked me to take a few pictures of them on the beach, but since the baby was ready for supper, we decided to just take a few on the balcony. This one turned out to be my favorite. I love the colors and the blue sky and just a touch of the ocean in the background was perfect.


I used a quote from the movie Lilo and Stitch. It is one of my favorite family quotes of all time and I say it often. The title is a mixture of glitter Thickers and Jillibean letters. The blue oval is a place for her to journal. I know she won't be writing much, so I felt that this was adequate space. If not, she can use the top or bottom of the layout to add a few more lines.

I hope you have a great weekend!
