Almost 15

I posted a sneak of this layout on Instagram with the caption 
"I have an almost 15yr old. How is that even possible? I feel 19!"

I'm in total denial mode here, people. Really. 

Almost 15

The photo was taken in December 2007. She was 7 then. It's like I blink and she's almost 15. As cliche as it may be, I have to say time flies when you're having fun :)

Almost 15 closeup

I created the journaling part in Photoshop, using brushes from Ali Edwards Prompts Digital and the new 2015 Date Stamps pack. Yes, you can totally modify the brushes and use them many times, not necessarily as a 'date stamp'. 

I find myself gravitating towards doing up part of my layout in photoshop because I think it's fun and besides enjoying the process, it's also a faster way to scrap, except when I do hand-stitching on the layouts like this one. :D What about you? Have you tried using digital brushes on your layouts? If you have, do you like it? If you haven't, well... why not? :)

So pretty! Love your clean, simple graphic look. I would love to use digital brushes, but don't have the right programs! Wish I did, because there's so many awesome ones out there!
