The Blossoming Relationship

One of the things I have loved about becoming a parent is watching the relationship between my daughter and my Dad develop. He was the first to admit that babies are not really his thing but as Scarlett has grown older and become more capable the two of them love spending time together.

I kept this layout very simple. I wish there were sounds available with this photo as the shrieking from Scarlett as Grandad tickled her was off the scale! This is another photo that I love as it shows the living room at my Dad's house. We spend a lot of time in this room and it is nice to have it recorded, at least in part.

The layout is made almost entirely from the Roller Rink kit and add ons. I am still in love with the little lettering from Basic Grey ad the Studio Calico veneer stars. I don't know what I will do when they run out! 

I have had a really good couple of days on new medication and I am feeling almost like my old self. It is amazing the difference feeling well makes to my state of mind. I certainly have a lot to be thankful for at the moment.


  1. So glad you are feeling better Claire! Love your page. Super sweet!

  2. YAH glad you are feeling a little better....may it continue,,,,
    and as for parents and dad was the same with my nieces and nephews.....!!! so ackward with they are older his LAP is the only place they want to be!!! love it!!

    what a great idea to capture the room as well!!!

  3. Yay, glad to hear you're feeling better. Love the paper behind the photo. I really need to start using my recent kits instead of just hoarding them ;P

  4. So glad you hear you are feeling better.
    I think this layout is wonderful, keeping it simple means that the photo tells the story.
