Here's a layout of my daughter and her yogurt mess. On the right hand side I used a rhinestone word, a couple strips of ribbon, and a rub on border towards the bottom to add interest to the journaling area. I used the Ashlyn's Alphabet Cricut font for the saying, and some Prima flowers with some tiny yellow brads I had in my stash.
Sometimes I find myself in the trap of wanting this pristine pictures of my children clean, facing the camera, smiling perfectly, dressed nicely... and then reality hits! They are young, they are messy, and they don't cooperate just because Mommy wants a picture. So, I end up taking photos like these and they mean so much more in the end anyways because these are the real life moments I'll cherish forever!
