Yesterday, I was chatting with one of the members of the Scrappy Hours group in Facebook. She asked if it was okay for her to submit a layout for the New Beginnings challenge or if she had to submit a card. I dawned on me that I have been posting cards for most of the challenges rather than layouts, so I decided to get back to my roots (and my family album) and to create a good, old-fashioned paper layout.
I decided to keep the layout very clean and simple hoping to focus on the meaningful day. The facing page will include the journalling as well as a picture of the groom with his family – 2 brothers, mom and dad – and pictures of me and my son. Michael isn’t a part of my family by birth, but he is like a brother to me and is my son’s God-father. For my title, I decided to repeat the theme that I used on the card that I made for Michael and Anne.
I think both of these items fit well with the New Beginnings challenge that is currently running here at Scrappy Hours. What do you think?
