more Jillibean Soup love and my special girl

Matt's work weekends are always a bit crazy for us at home and this weekend has been no exception. It's been a long week due to us not feeling well and still having so much to do.

I decided to pull out some of my Jillibean last night to play and take a much-needed break from laundry and other things.

Hailey lately has been saying things like, "I guess I'm just not special." I don't know where she's picked that up, whether from home or from school or kids at church, I have no idea but we always try our best to make her feel loved and important, so we've had a few talks about how she is special to us no matter what. In order to help her remember how special she is I thought I'd do a scrapbook page on the subject and the new Jillibean Soup Egg Drop Soup collection was perfect for some pictures of Hailey I've been wanting to scrap for a while.



To make the border on this page I traced around an old piece of Fancy Pants felt. I don't know why but I have a bit of a phobia about really simple pages with lots of white space so this border helped to fill in the page a bit for me. The little flowers were cut from a sheet of the Egg Drop Soup paper, the journal spot from the Chicken Noodle Soup collection and of course I outlined the letters with my Sharpie to keep them from blending into the page too much. I like my titles to stand out and this is a quick and easy fix.

It is amazing to me how we can hear something or see something and all of a sudden it takes over our lives. Hopefully all of your talks to Hailey have reistablished the fact that she is special to a lot of people. Great layout too! I like the colors. I was actually thinking today that I wanted to do a page with these same colors today since they are the ones we were wearing today.

Aw...how special. I know my girls always light up when they see I've done a layout just about them, I'm sure Hailey reacted the same way. Lovely layout. And good on you to try the white space thing. I've actually really been enjoying it lately. I really appreciate the variety it adds to my scrapbooks.
