For our second week in the Hello, Story class, our assignment was to use a fill-in-the-blank journaling prompt. Our instructor, the talented Ali Edwards, provided three different options, and I started with a fill-in-the-blank card meant for Project Life, using it in a traditional layout, paired with a photo of me taken on my birthday.
What I love about this layout--and I admit it is one of my favorites--is the color scheme: the pinks, the yellows, the reds, all working together in such an appealing palette.
I love these two details: the word "today" on the brad, and the words, also in a typewriter font, on the strip I used to anchor the photo and journaling card.
I love the pink mist splatters, and I love the star "stamp" sticker from the same set as the number stickers. I like that I was able to echo a bit of those smaller letter stickers in the top embellishment cluster with asterisks from that same set. I admit I was a little disappointed that I didn't have enough of the red letter stickers and had to use a few black ones to fill in, but in the end, I think it works well enough.
The title for this layout was inspired by a challenge at a brand new blog called Use Your Words. Check out the details of the challenge right here.
Hoping to post the second layout for week 2 tomorrow.
