Watch Me Grow: An Aunt's Perspective

I'm one lucky girl! I am the aunt to several nieces and nephews and each one has a special place in my heart. For the olders I am amazed at the adults they have become and so proud as they begin their lives with their spouses and start families of their own. For the middles, we joke and have fun and tease. And for the littles, it's tough not to spoil them rotten. Like I said. I'm pretty lucky.

This is one of the reasons why. This is my niece Zadie. Look at that naturally curly hair. She's a feisty, crazy little lady and she's completely captured my heart. As the daughter of my youngest sister who lives fairly nearby, I get to see her quite a bit. It of course makes me miss all the ones I don't get to see on a regular basis.

Who knew that I could love my nieces and nephews as if they were my own children. But it's true. No matter where they live I'm always thinking about them. I just adore them all!

This layout was created for 2Peas using the My Little Shoebox line "Pretty Little Things." I wanted to create a layout by using just the darling patterned papers in the line so I cut out pieces from the paper and added them to several boxes in this grid design:

You can find additional photos for completing this layout here. And be sure to check out all the designer's work, which is available here. I'm constantly amazed by the designers I get to work with!
