Flashback

Have you ever taken a photo and then looked at with a strong sense of nostalgia? The other day I took a photo of my youngest children holding hands and walking and it automatically brought me back to my oldest and my middle holding hands and walking all the time. The photo just brought back such strong memories for me and I knew that I had to tell this story.

Apparently my photo organization is not very good though because it took me forever to find a photo of the two other children to print out. If you have any suggestions on how you organize your photos please leave me a comment below.

Lets talk about my layout now. I have to admit that as soon as I saw the Moonstruck collection from Pink Paislee that I knew that I had to have it and let me tell you I hunted around for it and finally found the entire collection except for one sheet of paper. I ordered it and waited very impatiently for a week but once it came I was super excited and didn’t have any buyers remorse at all.

Now the ladies from Spiegel Mom Scraps DT have teamed up with the ladies from Lets Get Sketchy to create tons of inspiration for you using different sketches throughout the month. This week we used a sketch from Sara Mishler that inspired me quite a bit and I couldn’t wait to tell this story with a little help from an Ali Edwards story kit and the Moonstruck collection.

Now the first thing I did was punch out a bunch of circles from the heart paper and let me tell you, it was so hard for me to punch into this paper but I did it and I am so glad that I did. I then arranged my hearts on the paper in a diagnol pattern just like the sketch called for. I cut my photos down to about 3.75×3.75 and mounted them on white cardstock and fun foam so that that they would stand out. I grabbed the circle chipboard pieces from the story kit and adhered them to the photos. I added my journaling to a piece of vellum along with some embellishments and the mocha mint chip sequins from Spiegel Mom Scraps completed this layout.

Here is the process video.

    Thank you for this lovely idea Beth. Isn’t it amazing how time flies. It has been eons since I wrote about my time in Bermuda. Today, out of the blue I came across my two Bermuda articles. Looking back at them, I was faced by a gamut of emotions….many sweet and happy memories, good friends, fun times and a barrage of unidentifiable mixed feelings. I could not remember what made me stop writing about my experience, I had a whole list of topics to cover, but they never did materialize. Maybe life got in the way…….or maybe it was just me losing my way.

    Cheers then.
