As my oldest approaches turning 13 in just 10 days, I have sat and thought a lot about what I want her to know. What I remember from my teen years. What I can tell her that will help her teen years be as easy as possible. What I can do to let her know that I will always be there for her. I am so very thankful for the relationship that we have now as she is very open with me. Tells me things I am often surprised to hear, things that are very deep and have lead to some very good life conversations. We laugh together and cry together, but she still knows that I am Mumzie (she made that up and has called me it for years) and not her friend. I am sure a major part of this is our personalities, but I also hope that part of it is just me doing something right in this thing we call Motherhood. I love being her Mumzie more that she will ever know.
I have always loved the song “Perfect” from P!NK and thought that it was a perfect song to use to document how I feel about McKenna right now. This is a 6×8 insert and a 4×6 card that will go right into my Project Life® album.
I used One Little Bird’s Halcyon Digitals from The Lilypad for most of my 6×8 insert. The “Hello Perfection” is the 4×6 that will go in between the 6×8 spread. That card is from One Little Birds Lemon Drop line and can be found here. That card is simply perfect for this spread. I also used the brand new 6×8 templates from Little Lamm Co newest release. LOVE THEM!
The wood veneer and acrylic pieces are all from my shop. I have a bowl of extras that I make when engraving and cutting just for me. I love being about to look through the bowl to find the perfect pieces to embellish my projects.
Just a close up of my sweet McKenna and the Lyrics of the song that I put on the Layout. I love using full 6×8 photos with text in my albums.
I am so excited by how this turned out. Thank you so much for stopping by and think about using song lyrics in your own album to document something. Let me know in the comments if you do so that I can visit your blog.
