Journal + A Long Walk + Challenge

I’m hosting the Graphic 45 Blog Challenge this month.  It’s all about journaling.  This month I want to see some creative layout ideas where the story behind the photograph takes center stage.

For an example, I created the following layout of my son, Parker:

The journaling reads:

Sweet Parker,
This photo makes me sigh and smile.  Whenever we go for our long family walks you always seem to be in your element.   You are calm and curious.  You are fun and thoughtful.
You always pick me wild flowers.  On this particular late February walk, there were wild flowers in bloom everywhere.  You brought me handfuls of blossoms; so many, in fact, that I would let them fly in the breeze and we would make a wish as they blew away.
Thank you for constantly reminding me of what is important in life.  It’s so nice to slow down and walk with you.
Love, Mom
Parker and puppy, Kenai exploring Wookey Road Farm together.
February 2009.

For those of you that scrapbook, don’t forget how important it is to journal on your pages.  As scrapbookers we put so much time into our layouts; it would be a shame not to know the story behind them.

The winner of this month’s challenge is chosen by the Graphic 45 Design Team and will win a package of Graphic 45 papers.
