This post will actually be 2 different layouts inspired by classes from Shimelle.com (if you need a journaling or inspiration boost, I highly recommend stopping by to see what she offers!
This first layout is based off a prompt from True Stories, which I am still working through as I find the time. The prompt was to write a letter, so I wrote a letter to myself as a young teenager. I used Forever and Always by Geek Chic Scraps and I also used one of her newer alphas, Frosty Morning, because I felt it went perfect with the colors and feel of the layout! I really like the way the page came out, and have got a few nice comments on it in the galleries, which is almost unheard of in most galleries!
And since today is the first day of December I also managed to get my first page for my December layout done using the prompts from Journal Your Christmas (another class from Shimelle). I am really looking forward to creating this album, it’s exciting to have a real project that at the end of the month I can upload to have printed. I really need to have a finished project, there are far too many unfinished ones laying around.
I am really looking forward to the holiday season this year. I don’t know why but it feels like our first real holiday season as a complete family. I think it’s got something to do with the fact that we are now home owners, we are now done with kids, we now are more like responsible adults. I don’t know for sure, I just know it feels full of possibility and excitement and fun and I will be here to document it for years to come!
