With a daughter who graduated from college last year and another who will graduate next spring, I've been thinking about what the next stage of our life will be like. My layout records three things I hope the future holds for us.
The Heidi Swapp script veneer word serves as my title and it sits in a rub-on circle that also introduces the topic of my layout. I roughly drew three rectangles on a piece of blue patterned paper, outlining the rectangles twice to mimic the lines in the large circle. I mounted the blue paper onto a gold floral sheet to add a little color and then used some old alpha stamps to add the one word titles to each rectangle. I also stamped a little box next to each word and drew in the check marks with a black pen. Then I added my journaling, along with word stickers and tabs as embellishments.
I dug out a messy circle stamp and stamped it randomly around the blue patterned paper that serves as the background for the page. I adhered the journaling piece and then placed a few word strip stickers and stamped hearts in some of the background circles to pull the page together.
I didn't use a photo for this layout. I had a lot of words to fit on the page and wanted to make sure I had enough room for them. I thought the addition of a photo would make the page too crowded. I don't think that every page has to have a photo - sometimes you can tell the story with just your words.
I hope you'll participate in this challenge - and don't forget to link up to your creation on the CKC blog here!
