I had quite a time thinking of a title for today's post. In the past I have always named my scrapbook layout posts the same as the title of my page, but lately I have not been including a large, prominent title on my designs, which has left me at a bit of a loss when it comes to blog post titles. Not really a problem, it just brings to light the way my style has evolved...
And speaking of style, this layout is definitely a little different from my usual. Sure it is clean and simple, with the focus being on the photo, but the placement of the photo and journaling is completely different from what I normally do.
The Memory Nest, and to be honest, the finished design sat on my table for a week while I got okay with how it looked; being out of my comfort zone, there were moments when I really hated this layout and was so tempted to center everything as usual.
But I didn't and in the end I am glad...it is nice to have a completely different layout to add to my 2015 album.
Project Life: Eastern Canada album so there is no shortage of things to do in the scrapbooking department...stay tuned.
