OK, seriously, where does time go?
I cannot believe it is Friday already — Wow. I took Clark, Trey and Taft on school-shopping dates this week, so I suppose that is one reason the days flew by. I LOVE these dates with my boys. I learn so much and get to reconnect before a new school year — such a good thing. I’ve got several things to share, but right now (before I head out for a jog) I need to post our final challenge connected to the July/August issue of Simple Scrapbooks.
Document a Vacation Memory
As you may know, I taught at the Valley Forge CKC this year and absolutely loved the chance to see Valley Forge and Philedelphia. My layout is a collage of the peaceful landscape/scenic photos from Valley Forge with some thoughts about what I learned and felt while there.
naturally, I have many more pictures from this weekend, but for now, I’ve got a page in my Places We Go album. I’ve got recorded the fact that I traveled with my mom and that what I experienced altered my perspective.
As a side, when you run out of the letter "e" and there is no way you are going to pull up the entire title, then you simply replace the first "e" with a flower. I had set aside the sticker "Let Freedom Ring" but wasn’t convinced red would work in my design. When the "e" mishap occurred the red flower become my missing link and the rest fell into place — just a little plug for the creative process and the importance of starting without having a complete plan!
I shot the layout on red cardstock, so there is NOT a red border.
I cannot wait to see your pages in the new SS gallery — and thanks to the 150+ people that have joined my challenge group. I have loved making these layouts this summer. It’s been crazy, but now I have 10 pages to look back on and that’s a cool thing.
