Design Notes: I made use of a sketch by Brenshevia Baker of Colorful Creations as my inspiration. Instead of a regular square as base of the layout, I decided to cut my Provo Craft patterned paper to a scalloped square to make the page fun and cheerful. The sketch used offered no journaling spot. However, I converted the left side of the page and provided for one. I have to agree it was difficult to add a lengthy journaling. I have to check on my emotions while trying to recall what I had experienced in those instances – may they be tight and happy situations. But it sure gave the page character and depth – a glimpse of you and your feelings at those times of your life. One should not be afraid to uncover bits and pieces of oneself on one’s layout.
