I think this might be my favorite scrapbook page to date. I’m pleased with it for several reasons: it uses colors that perfectly complement the photo, which, I think, is absolutely adorable; it mixes punches, ribbon, and a variety of patterned papers in some cool layering effects that help add texture to the page; and the subject of the journaling (cloth diapering) is probably “unexpected.”
The journaling: Through the generosity of others we were able to invest in Bum Genius cloth diapers for you. We chose cloth primarily for environmental reasons. For months you were too small to fit into the cloth diapers, but once you started wearing them regularly you also started getting terrible diaper rashes. By September your rashes were so persistent and severe that the doctor advised us to discontinue using the cloth. We were so disappointed. But, you are so much more important than any goal or ideal we had, and we know this is just one of many parenting curve balls we’ll face.
