``For my challenge I wanted to get back to the root of scrapbooking a little bit, back to the preserving of memories; to encourage you to look at your photos a little more closely. We all have cute photos of the sweet-faced children and beautiful family members, in our lives, that we can scrapbook. But I want to challenge you to choose a photo that tells a story or evokes an emotion, something a little different than our children playing or family members posing. We all have heard that a picture speaks a thousand words. Chose a photo that was taken from behind the subject, preferably one in which you cannot see their face. Maybe you have chosen not to scrap a particular photo in past because you couldn’t see the subject’s face very well, this is the perfect time to use that photo. Then the story will be the focus and not the face. Then tell the story that goes with the photo via your journaling. This way when our families look back at this page years from now, they will truly be reminded of the moment.``
What an incredible challenge! My fellow group of artists have been working all month to create gorgeous and inspiring designs. Here`s the list of my IE friends and I hope you`ll pop by and see what they have created and perhaps take a moment to say a word or two.
Here is my take on the challenge! I was so inspired by this photo of Kelly & Jay at the wedding last summer. This photo evokes emotion for me, I know it is a perfect photo...maybe not quite what the challenge called for...but it speaks to me! It is inspired by a sketch from
lets capture our memories for their Birthday Bash. It was challenge #8!
I am not great at journaling..in fact, I almost never journal. I am a selfish scrapper, I create for me..for the enjoyment and for the art of it! So this really was a challenge for me..I will share with you what it says..hope you don't find it too sappy..lol.
I ADORE this Girl! She is simply one of the most Genuine, True & Amazing people in MY LIFE!
In this Special moment between her and Jay..I know that this girl will be okay...she has found the LOVE of her LIFE. The hurt and uncertainty are over!
She has become DETERMINED, CERTAIN & INSPIRED!
Nothing stops this AMAZING young woman. She is always STRIVING for more, always reaching and EXCEEDING her goals.
She THOUGHT She COULD, So She DID!
Love ya Kelly!
