I was a bit put off with this sketch because it used such small images. It made sense for the inspirational layout that generated this sketch. But how would I use photos with it. They would be so small and, umm, what the hell is the point then? no? I got over the fear because I realized that this layout would end up being more about the story (journaling) and less about the pictures. So I picked my photos and got to work!
While I made a mini book of our trip to Montreal I decided to do whole page layouts for a few things. I like to document vacations in layouts, as well as mini books, so I pick a few key things to focus a layout on. In this case, I wanted to document our factastic lunch/dinner on 1.1.11. We headed into Crepe Suzette and had some fondue, a dessert crepe, and some VERY strong after dinner coffee drinks. Nothing entirely special about lunch, but I wanted to document it. I wanted to look back and remember how the bloody mary I had was horrible, that it was raining, and we got really buzzed on spikes coffee’s. I just want to remember how we started the new year.
