Maddek & His Dino Pets

My son, David, used to draw huge dinosaurs on poster board.  He loved dinosaurs!!   So when I found out that my grandson, Maddek, loved dinosaurs, too…I just had to snap some pictures and create a memory for my album!  Everytime I see Maddek, he’s wearing a dinosaur shirt.  So I was thrilled to find the Dino Friends paper line by Echo Park!  It was the perfect paper to highlight these adorable pictures of Maddek wearing one of his favorite shirts and playing with his favorite dino pets!  He’s too cute!

Here’s a video where I go through my design process. I go over how I decide which paper and templates to use on this layout.

One of the joys of raising children is watching them attempt to discover what they are passionate about. I’m grateful to live in a time where we can capture this process in photos as it unfolds, and love being able to preserve those moments as they happened, so that they can look back later, and be reminded of the path that they took toward becoming the best version of themselves.

What are your children or grandchildren passionate about?

    I absolutely love this layout as my oldest son loved dinosaurs and I just came across some photos of him with his dinos. It is great to see the process. Love how the one paper was used both above and below the photos on the right page and on the left page border. Great way to balance. I also never think to put accessories under my borders so seeing the gear under the right page border was awesome and inspiring. Thanks so much for sharing your process!!!
