"You My Best Friend" Scrapbook Layout


Today I'm sharing one of my favourite pages I've made in a while. Because of the story, and just how the page itself turned out. 

I loved the CTMH "Adventure Fundamental" pack as soon as I saw it - major heart eyes for that giant watercolour floral paper! And that thin cut alpha set is going to become my best friend! Love the ability to make a title out of any piece of paper. (And yes, I do own an electronic die cutting machine, but am usually too lazy to bust it out for titles 😕)

And the story is one that is dear to my heart. One evening, after have one of 'those' days with Austen (not listening, doing things he knows he's not supposed to, constant battles over everything) we were in his room getting ready for bed. I was very done by this point, and just counting down the seconds until bedtime. All of a sudden, he just looked at me with the most genuine smile and said, "Mommy, you my best friend". I was blown away. I didn't even know he knew those words or what they really meant. I just thought it was a fluke, so once we were all done with the bedtime routine and I was tucking him into bed I asked, "Who's your best friend?" and he just smiled sweetly at me again and said, "You!" *heart melting* Cut to months later, and he still tells me many, many times a day that I'm his best friend. Each time so sweetly and genuinely. For the longest time Jason would try to get him to say that Jason was his best friend too, but he refused. Just in the last week or two, he will finally say, "Mommy, you my best friend.... and you too Dad" - or JJ, or all of us together. Ugh... this kid can be such a little bum... but he can also be the sweetest little soul. 💙

Here are some closer looks at the page:
