Embracing Change and Leaving My Legacy

Very recently, I was honoured to be featured in the Canadian Scrapbooker article by the very talented Sue Sykes. (You may recognize her a contributing writer for the wonderful publication but also as a member of our Inspiration Elevator Challenge every month.)

In this edition of Canadian Scrapbooker, Sue wrote about how we embrace change in our lives. My design talks about how I look forward to the changes in my life as they mean growth and that it is really about the journey we make rather than the destination we seek. It's important that as part of creative journey, that I take time to document these thoughts I have about life..just in case anyone cares to know in the future!

I used Basic Grey papers from their Soliel Collection with all their gorgeous patterns to design this layout.
I cute the title using my Silohuette and some sticker letters (also from the Soliel Collection).

What I love most about this layout (besides the great photo from Angela Smith Photography of Waterloo) is my journalling. Those of your who know me well, know I find it hard to write on my designs and in fact, often find it hard to integrate it into my layout.. but not in this case!

 I hope you will check out this great magazine and especially the wonderful feature by Sue. It gives you wonderful ideas and inspires you to document YOUR life for your family. Until next time, keep doing what you love.
