The best things in life aren't things, BUT LIFE


The first page of this layout was made for a challenge over at Once Upon A...Sketch!  I have been wanting to scrapbook these pictures for a few years now.  I didn't have an idea until I saw the sketch at Once Upon A...Sketch

The tag:  A few years ago robins decided to pick our yard to have 4 babies.  They nested just off the corner of the deck in a spruce tree.  I took about 300 pictures starting with the little eggs to the little babies leaving the nest.  What an experience to have, and one I will never forget!  "The best things in life aren't things, BUT LIFE!"


  1. Just beautiful! I love the pictures and the title is just perfect. Can't wait to see the new baby robins this year.

  2. Fabulous journaling & so, SOOO true! Love those hexagons - they look amazing...thanks so much for sharing this with us at OUAS! And if you haven’t already done so, you can link this to our Once Upon A…Sketch Facebook Page for a chance at our special FB prize!

  3. What a wonderful thing to experience. Your photo is amazing and I am not surprised that you took so many pics. I would have to. Love the clean lines of this design, the lovely photo and most importantly the journalling. Thanks for playing along with us at OUAS this month.

  4. Wow Christy, what a lovely 2-page spread. What a fabulous experience this must have been to observe them so closely!! I adore that you included your journaling as part of your page design!! I’m so glad you have joined us for the June Once Upon A…Sketch Challenge and for sharing your layout on our Facebook page! ~ Blessings, Tracey
