Lasting Memories weekly layout challenge--Journaling!

This week's Lasting Memories challenge centers on journaling.  Journaling is such an important part of the keeping of our memories!  The pictures and embellishments we put on our layouts only tell part of the story, so it's up to the journaling to tell the rest of it.  Here's what I came up with for this week:


My oldest son, Kennedy, and I always find a way to take self-portraits of ourselves any time we're together.  He doesn't live with us, so I treasure every moment I have with him!  I used a combination of chipboard letters/number and some random letter stickers I found in my stash to make up the title, and I used Tim Holtz's Distress Stickles in Spiced Marmalade to accent some of the orange circles in the background (AND to create the apostrophe!).

What have YOU got for us this week?!?  Anything goes on your layout for this week's Lasting Memories challenge, as long as your layout includes journaling.  Don't forget about our Design Team call, too!  All you have to do to be considered for the new Design Team is participate in all of April's challenges AND be sure to include "DT" next to your name when you link up your layout.  We're looking forward to seeing what you've got for us this week!

I love the colors in your layout. I love that you wrote out your journaling. I am trying to do more of that. I get very intimidated when I have a lot to say, and no lines already on the paper. You do it so well.
