Last weekend Dan and Cole were up in Duluth for an ultimate disc tournament on the shores of Lake Superior. Cole is playing for the Minnesota Superior team this summer, preparing for the YCC National Championships next month. After the tourney, they swung by the Maritime Museum in Duluth and Dan snapped a shot of our boy standing by the famed Coleman oar.
And my heart lodged firmly in my throat, because of this (and yes, I couldn’t scrapbook it soon enough!):
One of the beautiful things about a digital photo library is the ease with which you can locate those older photos. And I know I don’t have to tell you guys this, but photos are FREAKING magic.
I am so grateful for iPhone cameras and a son who said, “Hey Dad, take this.”
I could tell you how the design of this layout is working (symmetry, repetition, space, unity), and I will say that all of those things are at work, no question. But this reminds me of why I do this. Why I keep doing this.
It’s because photos and stories together are magic.
TECH NOTE: I made my title words by cutting out multiple copies of each letter on my Cameo. Then I just glued them on top of each other. I used a free font, Bebas Neue. LOVE that font. Super neutral and classic!
Note: The patterned paper I used is from an old BasicGrey collection called Capture. I could not find it anywhere online. The heart stickers are from an old Studio Calico kit.
