Like many scrapbookers, I began this hobby when I had a baby, or more accurately, when I adopted a baby, as a way to document my son’s early life, recording his photos and capturing his milestones. Along the way, I’ve found that, every once in awhile, I'd make a page about Mommy too.
This particular layout, though, isn’t about me as a mommy. It’s just about me. Just random things about my life before my son came along. Twenty things, because that is a nice round number and because, well, that’s all that would fit on the page. In truth, when I went to design the page, I needed to cut the last three items from the list to fit the journaling block so I added those three things to the tag under the photo. It's always a bit of a design challenge to fit in a lot of journaling.
I used a mix of paper lines here: Cosmo Cricket, Little Yellow Bicycle, Crate Paper and October Afternoon. The border sticker is from Echo Park Paper and the alphas are from Bella Blvd , October Afternoon, Studio Calico and Basic Grey. Chipboard is American Crafts and Cosmo Cricket.
How about you? Do you make layouts to capture you? If so, feel free to link your projects in the comments or tell a random fact about your life.
