Christmas Wishes

Journaling:  You kept wishing and hoping for some snow here in Florida this Christmas, but it just didn’t happen.  The best we got were some colder-than-normal temps and some frost.  Save those wishes!  It might happen next year!

living and loving life

Eeek! This is the coolest collection ever! Select photos, choose template, add photos, use template guides and journal . . . and you're done.  I just finished my first layout with Every{day} Life.  Images are linked to Weeds and Wildflowers.

Here's my layout . . . love the large photo, plenty of space for journaling and I was still able to add layered elements without overwhelming the page design.  Not my normal style, but I love, love, love the way this turned out!
