The inspiration for this layout was a fun reading session outside in between dips my daughter was taking in her little pool. I was reading a comic and she came over and wanted to read it too. She held the book and “read” it herself then I read it to her.

Scrapbooking Notes:

I didn’t cut any parts of the photo away because the natural background is spectacular and I couldn’t imagine what to cut that would make it better in any way. I also didn’t add any embellishments because the focus of this layout is the photos and anything other than journaling on the page would have detracted from the subject of the photos. The journaling is simple, concerning the subjects of the photos and the actions taking place within. To add a bit of uniqueness and to personalize the moment and to fill in a bit of empty space, I added two differently shaped speech balloons, one on either side of the layout to house what my daughter was saying while she read the book. The two sayings are ones she uses frequently when it comes to reading and telling stories.
