What a fun challenge is in store for everyone at the Memory Nest! Here is my water inspiration for everyone. At first I was going to do a page of my little dude's first bath, but these photos from one of out impromptu trips to one of our favorite beaches this summer while we were waiting for the little guy to make an appearance worked better with the interactive element I wanted to do.
So the twist was to make an interactive element. At first I thought about cutting out that upper photo of my daughter and myself walking on the beach and making a tab that you could pull out to actually make us walk, but I ended up deciding that my cutting skills were not up for that challenge. I ended up just doing a big flap up and a little pull out journaling tag.
On of my favorite details is the stitched title. I love the texture it creates. The title might seem kind of weird, but the beach we were at is basically in downtown Bellevue. The entrance is hidden away and the first time I tried to get here I drove past it several times. It's a small beach, but because it is so tricky to get to, it often only has a few people at it.
And here are just a few close-ups of my interactive part. I love the bright colors of this page. The yellow and pink papers I used on this layout play off of the colors from my daughters shirt.
