Throwback Thursday - "Ollie Girl"

I'm sharing anther throwback layout with you today, this time from about 5 years ago. Notice ya I was still making two-pagers back then and still working in 8.5 X 11. I don't hate this layout or anything, but today, I'd probably chose smaller photos, a single 12 X 12 page, and different colors. Where did I come up with that green? Oh well... 

I used printed diecuts from the same line as embellishments. For whatever reason, the layout feels very boring to me now. I'm not sure how I'd change it in this form; I'd prob have yo start from scratch.

In case you'd like to read the journaling, here's your shot. I love having this story and pics from several years ago; can you believe how much Kelsey, Jake, and Ollie have all changed!? 

You can see the patterned papers closeup here.

And one last look at the entire layout...


  1. The good thing is you have captured the story and some great photos of Kelsey, Jake & Ollie. I had no idea Kelsey & Jake had dated for so long. Good for them!! And good for Ollie. She's a lucky girl!!

  2. i'm grateful they got her. it's a hopeful story. i like the patterned paper & die cuts. it's fun seeing kelsey's hair so differently.
