I have been featured on the Scrapbooking from the Inside Out blog twice this week.
On Wednesday they shared this layout...
When I found out the theme for this month's kit was Communication, this Instagram photo of my daughter was one of the first to pop into my mind. And then I saw all of the little rotary phone and other communication pieces in the kit, well that just sealed the deal. :)
Then yesterday, they had a blog post up about the current kit and which included layouts from all three of the new design team members. This time they used a layout which you can see here...
This layout was a bit of a challenge for me. I knew I wanted to use the lyrics from "I'll Hit You Back" by Jane's Addiction because it says so much about communication. I can relate because there have been so many times in my life I have been tempted to "hit back". In the long run though, I have realized that sometimes it is just better to let go and be the "better person".
But as far as the layout coming together, it definitely changed a lot from the original picture I had in my mind. Lots of moving pieces around and cutting things down. Plus the titles first five words are stamped and hand cut from patterned paper. So that took a lot of time!
In the end, I am happy with the message of the layout because essentially it is who I am. And I am proud of that!
I hope you have a great weekend!
I will be back on Monday with the release of the newest issue of Crafting Ireland.
Looking forward to seeing which of my projects are being published this month :)
