It's Good to Be an Aunt

Especially when I'm the Aunt to so many fabulous nieces and nephews. I never realized how much I would enjoy being an Aunt. I also never knew how much I would love the little men and women that my siblings have produced. If only they would just let me keep all the kidlings, then I would be so very happy. Unfortunately not one of my siblings has been willing to part with their children permanently so I kiss and squeeze on them as much as I can when they visit.
I created this layout with my niece, Zadie, in mind. She has a fierce and bright personality, which perfectly matches the American Crafts "Hello, Sunshine!" line. I knew I wanted to create some kind of chain with the tags so I added some smaller tags with one journaling circle and some black and white photos. To give the page dimension, I added adhesive foam squares to pop up some of the tags. It's a simple but graphic look, but I love it:
