The Zoe paper pack was one of my favorites the first time around and, I am once again, sad to see it go at the end of April. This adorable set of papers and stickers♥ is full of happiness and sunshine. When I saw the little “Camera” in the sticker packet, I knew that I needed to use it to create a layout with some fun photos of my kiddos that were found on my phone years ago.
How many of you have photos just like this??♥ Our kids snag our phones, play with the filters, make silly faces, and we end of finding them later. I know that many of you post them to social media or upload them online, but have you ever considered printing them to record your thoughts and memories?
This is exactly what I chose to do. I wanted to record the memories♥ of when I found the photos, record the relationship between these two goofballs, and record the fun many kids of their age have with cellphones. The stickers in the Zoe Paper Packet and So Much Happy Complements were perfect for adding some of those thoughts to the page.
I not only used stickers to add to my journaling, but I chose to add some fun statements to a Filmstrip Border I created using our Artistry collection. As a special gift, to you for stopping by my blog, you can have a copy of this Design Space™ file♥ to create your own Filmstrip border.
We often think of these photos as an everyday occurrence, but there will be a day that your kiddos no longer “sneak” silly photos for you to find. There will be a day when that silliness is gone and their relationship matures, and they are no longer big goofballs with their mom’s cell phone.
This is why we record our memories. ♥
Now ‘Hop” on over to Gina Brandstetter’s blog to see her artwork! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas. Remember, the Zoe Collection is only available while supplies last through April 30th. Contact your CTMH Consultant, or visit my website to order this delightful set before it’s gone.
♥ I can’t wait to see what you create!

You are so sweet, Melissa. I wish the photos were better, but phones a few years ago didn’t have that capability.
Great idea! Cute pages!
