This Summer The (Not) So Small One and I bought new swimsuits for our holidays: age appropriate for me and a most excellent two piece for the teenager. I thought she looked fabulous; and she must have been pretty pleased with the effect herself because she let me take photos. They're all safely tucked away in the album and I have chosen a simple picture of her face for this layout:
Because sometimes I like to make pages with clues; pages where the story isn't obvious to everyone right on first glance. It's there in hints and references; and, if you lift the flap, you'll find the words.
|A Jenni Bowlin rub on which is at least three years old. Some of the first ones I bought have lost their "rub" but not the JBS ones. They still go on perfectly.|
It's a page between us: the girl in the excellent bikini and her Mum who took the pictures. No, maybe it won't mean much to everyone else. But maybe that doesn't always matter when it's for a personal album.
|I used one of my tracing paper butterflies here|
Maybe sometimes a little trigger (the colours, the shapes copied from those on the suit, the wet hair, straight from the pool) to get the personal memories going is simply enough. Swimsuits are pretty personal things, after all. Aren't they?
