Love You Forever

This year, I've been working on documenting stories that I might not have thought were "important" enough to be documented. I signed up for Ali Edwards' 31 Things and 31 More Things classes. I never thought that I could look at a word or phrase and write pages of stories and memories. It's not that I don't like writing, I do, but I feel so vulnerable when I write things from my heart that I know other people will read one day. My writing is something I'm really insecure about, but I do it anyways. Somehow sharing it here is fine, but sitting there and watching someone read the words I wrote is hard. At least here I can just assume that you're not reading what I wrote, and instead your judging my terrible embellishing skills. Just kidding. But the minimal traffic my blog gets allows me the freedom to assume that no one is reading my words, and I'm okay with that.

A few things about this spread:
1. I was 19 when this photo was taken. It feels like another lifetime.
2. That baby is not mine, she's my wonderful niece that I've documented and shared layouts of
3. My title is from this digital set from Kellie Stamps 
I love that she went digital so I can make large titles like this with her stamps!
4. This layout was included in the projects I submitted with my application for Kellie's creative team.

I love this layered chipboard piece. It's from the Shimmelle collection. I've been waiting to use it for a while now, and I'm so glad I used it here. At first I was a little peeved that the lines on the chipboard went the opposite way of the background paper, but I love it. I also love the touches of gold.

The gold photo corners are also from the Shimelle collection. I used a physical Kellie Stamp to stap "This life is great" on the portion of the tag I cut off the top. It was the perfect size for this space. The other stickers are from an old My Mind's Eye collection.

Here's the full spread. I thought about changing the title colour, but decided that it stood out more being black. The layout had a lot of pink going on, and I love the contrast of the black title and the black journaling.

Thank you so much for coming to look at this spread. I've been on a roll creating beautiful pages lately, and I can't wait to get my 31 Things words onto layouts to share with all of you. I'm still debating how I want to go about it, but I'm thinking maybe 8.5x11 because I love having this slightly smaller space to work with.
Have a wonderful day!
