'You Make Me Smile' Scrapbook Layout

See larger image

Today’s layout is about my cousin Hayley. I was 8 when Hayley was born, so i’ve always considered her the little sister that I never had. With only 50 yards between our family homes, we grew up together and confided in one another. Many a girly sleepover and agony aunt moments shared. It was not a difficult decision to have Hayley as one of my bridesmaids on my big day, and as expected she was the perfect choice.

When I went to Uni, I didn’t get to see Hayley as much as I wanted to, and even now I only get to visit the homeland once or twice every year. Even at that, Hayley works so hard that sometimes I don’t even see her even when I do get back to Northern Ireland for a while. Its a shame she is not one of those people who could chat for hours on the phone. I should really get her over to visit me soon……

But still, when I think of Hails, I think of a kind and considerate person, the funny things she does and say. The friendship we have, a shared soul, the strong connection between us- one that blurs the line between family / friend. When I think of her, I smile.

And that is exactly what I wanted to portray in this layout. Simple and to the point. Bright and colourful, just like her bubbly personality, and a photo that demonstrates our closeness. I will always love my Hails for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever.

    Would you be so kind as to pop by my blog and pick up your award that you’ve left lying around? It’s making my post look a bit untidy 😉 😀
