Was just taking a walk down scrapbook.com memory lane and came across this early layout I created for a challenge back in 2008. The challenge was to create a layout without using embellishments. Just pen, paper, and photos. So I dove head first (haha) into free-writing because I knew I had to fill a whole lotta space with words, rather than decoration and embellishments. Still one of my faves and, I think, a true testament to the importance of journaling on a layout. I can look back and, quite literally, see exactly what I was thinking at that time in my life. Journal on your layouts, peeps. All those memories you think you will never forget fade, will...unless you get them down on paper. Happy Sunday and thanks for stopping by!
