9 - thirteen

When I made the last page for my son, both of my girls asked me when I was going to do one for them as well. So I let them pick their own colour combo and my oldest picked this one.

This summer she turns 13 & I will OFFICIALLY have a teenager in the house. The teen angst has been present for at least 3 years, so nothing will have changed really.

I realized after I finished the banner title (also something that I SWORE I would NEVER do....but I caved) that that particular colour of blue was just all wrong, but I'm keeping it, because it was a lot of work to get it together. =D When I get more time, I plan to fill out 4 facts about her right now for the journaling, just like I did on my sons page.

Evidence - text pattern, striped pattern, bird accent.

Testimony - I used the 6 word memoir challenge and make it a six sentence one instead. I was inspired by a Page Maps sketch for this LO.

Supplies : Cardstock - Bazzill, PP - LYB & Jilliebean Soup, Embellies - Martha Stewart. K&Co, MME, MM, PC, & miscLetters - LilyBee, Punch - EK.

Awww...I love that they wanted their own pages, and that you let them pick the colors! Such a pretty page, Vivian! Love your different patterns and your use of the baker's twine! So cool using the eyelets on the journaling strips!
