Got my Feb issue of CK in the mail yesterday. I have a special LO in there. My Grandma (you'll remember, she passed away last August) and Jamie.
Your Great-Grandma Lola is quite taken with you, Jamie. You are her tenth great grandchild. On this day she sat and admired you, then she waggled her fingers for you to watch, and patted you. Watching you two together, I'm struck by the cycle of life - she is ninety-seven; you have just been born. You were born almost a century apart.
I loved doing this one. It heralded a bit of a return to the ol' Kathie vintage style. I had been doing so many baby and cutesy layouts. It was quite nice to do something like this for a change and it came together really fast, which is a novelty for me.
Strangely, I'm finding myself doing more and more vintage LOs again. It probably has something to do with all the rich papers that are coming out, coinciding with winter in the US.
In the mag the LO looks like it's an 8.5x11 page. But it's not! They cut it when they were printing it. So, no, I haven't converted to the dark side, lol. Actually, considering that they totally mangled it and overexposed it when they photographed it, it doesn't look too bad. But here is a better pic.
