I am totally loving layout templates!!!

Maybe it's just because I have so much on my plate right now, but I am falling totally in love with layout templates! The only way that I can find time to get a layout completed is to use one. Here's a layout that I did of Austin this morning.

The journaling reads: "I waited forever for you. At least it seemed that way. Every time I blew out the candles on my birthday cake, I wished for you. Every time I got the long piece of the wishbone I wished for you. On every shooting star, with every dandelion that I blew on, you were my only wish. With one small change. In my deepest heart, I thought I wanted a little girl. How could I have known that God could not have created a sweeter, kinder, more loving child than you. Sometimes you don’t get what you wish for. What you get is so much better that you couldn’t have even conceived of something so wonderful. You are my Miracle. My dream come true. Everything I ever could have wanted and didn’t even know that I wanted. I love you so much more than I ever thought possible. Your smile can brighten my whole day. Your arms around my neck fill my heart to overflowing. Sometimes I look at you and tears come to my eyes, because you mean so very much to me. I have nightmares of losing you, but even if that were to ever happen (God forbid), my whole life has been enriched by your presence in it. I love you, Austin. And I always will."

The kit is Namaste by Betsy Tuma, and the minute that I saw this quote, I knew exactly what to scrap with this kit. The templates are EZ Scrapz Templates by Angela Sharrow.
