I don’t normally have a favorite layout. I love them all pretty much equally. Seriously. I do. But every, single time I look at this layout I burst out laughing. I laugh so hard I cry. It’s my favorite photo of 2012. It’s my favorite story, which is why it’s my favorite layout. It captured a moment perfectly and years from now it will keep making my laugh to tears.
We took the kids to see the lights at Winterhaven, something I've wanted to do for years. We've lived in Tucson for 6 years now and we've never been. Coop hadn't had a nap that day and was a pill the WHOLE time. Screaming, crying, stomping ... not so merry and certainly not his normal, happy self. Every time I stopped and tried to take a picture he'd yell: “I don't need a picture. Keep moving.” If I wasn't holding his hand, he'd scream. If I wasn't moving fast enough, he'd scream. All I could do was laugh. Epic fail! Maybe next year?
Since I haven’t share a template in awhile, I thought I’d share this layout as a template … my last for 2012 and my last for awhile. I’m going to take a break from making and sharing templates. Maybe in the spring I’ll start back up, but for now I’m going to focus on other creative endeavors.
