Other times, I get those moments. I capture the smile that really counts or the look that means so much. I don't think it is hard...it is just about having the camera and the motivation to use it.
I caught Ella last year...the moment she realized the fire truck Santa was coming. I love the point and then the look.
I used the Royal Christmas collection by Webster's Pages to make this layout.
I struggled when making this....started over like five times. The paper is great and the photos are cute. I just couldn't make it all pop. The secret was adding the soft patterned paper under the photos as well as the bold green. I used hand cut artisan shapes to add texture, but not color. The stars sorta look like a bottle of happiness fell over. I didn't intend for that, but I will take it.
I am glad this came together. The moment when a five year old spots Santa is magical. I'm thrilled I caught it.
