#9 Another's voice...

although it was my challenge, I struggled to come up with a solid inspiration on this one. I wanted to find something handwritten by my mom and somehow incorporate that, but I never really took the time to dig for it. So I took the semi-easy route. I gave my sister two pictures and a journaling block and asked her to write something. Boy, am I glad I did! I love what she wrote, of course, but more than that I love that I got to document her English as it stands right now, misspellings and all. As she is about to embark on her college career here in the US and English is her second language, I think she will look back in a few years and probably cringe at what she wrote. I, however, anticipate the day when I can look back with fondness on this day and see how much she's grown. That is my inspirational twist for this week, folks.

Enough babbling though, here we go with the actual layout.

It's pretty standard of what you have come to expect from me. I have kept the 52 Scrapbooking challenges by Elsie Flannigan on my desk recently and flip through it every time I have gone to scrap for the last week - and I am loving the results! Her style is so playful and free that it reminds me that I should be having fun.

So thanks for stopping by and reading. The new challenge should be posting soon and I cannot wait to see what Lisa has in store for us for this week.

  1. Cute, sweet, colourful, adorable and totally you! I love all those colours and the texture you've added with the lace and fabric. The inking round the edges and the coloured words really add to the feeling of the page. And the mixed font title is great. But you are right, it's the words you sweet sister has written that makes this really special. It really will be wonderful to look back in a few years and see how far she's come. And wow! I tell you, if only my German were that good, I'd be a happy bunny!
