Technique Challenge: journaling (due 6/30)

This challenge shouldn't be too hard.....let's see JOURNALING! Smile Your layout must contain atleast 3 sentences of journaling (atleast a small paragraph). I'd love to see us get creative with it....hide it.....fill the page with it......use different fonts......whatever you want!

Please post your layout here by June 30th. Then we can vote on the most creative/best use of journaling on a layout!

Have fun!

Sure ... you post this AFTER I finish my birth story page! LOL

This one will stretch me, though, because I don't usually use much journaling on a page!

I'm loving the layouts that already have been done. Smile

Sarah - I totally want to lift your layout, I love it!

Stephanie - you totally captured Andrea's first ER visit, poor kiddo. I really love how you did your layout. (FYI, you do have a "breath" when you need to have a "breathe", and you're missing a "t" in one of your "treatments" and "released" is spelled wrong - figured you'd want to fix that. sorry for catching so many, I'm a spelling/grammar nut. but I do the same thing when doing digi pages because of the lack of spell check Wink )

Shannon - love how your layout turned out, the title is terrific too. Smile

I'm not very creative in the way I did the journaling. But it's a stretch for me since I don't normally do much journaling at all!

Journaling: You are so very uniquely you! Even all dressed up in your Easter best, you still wanted to play ball. I think you'll take after your mom who doesn't like to do very girly things. You really don't like to play with dolls or dress-up clothes or jewelry. You want to play ball, run, or take care of your stuffed animals. No matter who you decide to be, we will love the unique you!

Sarah -- what a great way to hide the journaling! Your LO is beautiful!

Shannon -- I love how you hid yours in the heart!

Stephanie -- what a great way to tell the story and capture all that happened!

Journalling:
What can I say about you at 15 months old? You are still the apple of our eyes and just a little sweetheart. You are starting to play shy and be a little bit anti-social at times with anyone other than mommy. This is a bit frustrating for us, but we know you will grow out of it, hopefully soon!

You still love spaghetti, in fact any type of pasta is a staple in your diet, who would have thought atll that KD that mommy ate while pregnant would have that effect on you! Your favorite game to play is peek a book, and you giggle like crazy when we play it with you. You love the dog and pulling his hair, and you love to play with anything - except your toys, that is!

You have 7 teeth and are still not walking, but this month started pulling yourself to your feet, so we know walking is soon to come! You had your first ice cream cone and loved it, and you also attended your first funeral, for your G.G.

ugh. I only have two sentences ... unless you count my "a rolling good time" that's separate. Wink here it is anyway, I'll try to get a longer journaling one done before the end of the challenge, but it's unlikely to happen given the date already.

The journaling reads:
To improve Jack's gross motor skills, his doctor recomended rolling him on a ball. Jack LOVED to be rolled on his ball, and actually started army crawling soon afterwards.

Took the above outside and didn't realize the glare on the journaling. So here's another shot taken inside of just the big circle. Smile

Here is mine. It was my first time working with an all white background!! Once she turns 2 in a few weeks I will replace the June 2009 pic with a July one from her birthday. The first pic was the day after she was born and the 2nd pic is on her 2st birthday at EXACTLY the time she was born.

OK ... this doesn't compare w/ what you ladies are crankin' out, but it's the first time in MONTHS and MONTHS (& MONTHS) that I've actually sat down to scrap and that just plain feels good. I have plans to print out that background and then re-do this as a paper page, but it may be more months and months before I can get to it, so here is my place holder. Smile

TFL!
