Love Lines


To mark Chris' birthday, I gathered pictures of him from each year of his first 18. I was going to name this "Line Up", but knowing that Chris has made so many friends in his life and his birthday is close to Valentine's Day, I decided to name it "Love Lines".

Journaling:

"Each year of your life you've made friends who love you and the love lines surrounding you are many. No one will ever love you more than your Mom and Dad."

I started twice to make this as a digital layout but just didn't like it. So 80 square knots, 76 pop dots & 12 eyelets later, I finished this hybrid layout.

Digital elements (2 Peas in a Bucket "Chrissy W Cutter Masks" "Jen Allyson Study Hall")
