Another simple layout

My daughter recently had her braces removed (YAY!) so, of course, this called for a scrapbook page.



Like most scrapbookers, I'm always thinking ahead, so I had taken "before" pictures two years ago to include on this layout. I took anoth
er "before" picture just as she headed to the orthodontist, and grabbed an "after" picture in the lobby as soon as her appointment was over. (Poor Daughter is used to the crazed, camera-wielding mother by now...) It's not the greatest photo of her, but it's the documentation of the event that's important!

I printed the "before" photos and text in wallet size and the "after" picture as a 5x7. I added a quick title (QK Jolly font) and a strip of a beloved (and hoarded) Ki striped paper....super easy, fast, and done!

Connor won't let me take photos right now of him in braces. I think I'm going to wait until he gets his bottom braces on, then MAKE him let me take a photo.

I WILL have before & after photos...lol!
