My layout this week is very simple, because I wanted the focus on the words, not the layout. I am on vacation, 1000 miles from home, and don't have all my pictures with me. I had thought about scrapping my dad, but I'm not quite ready for that, and I didn't have a picture with me. So I chose to scrap about my own life journey instead. Because it is a summer picture, I chose minimal embellishments as the colors weren't a good match for my picture, and again, I wanted the focus on the words. I never even looked at anyone else's layouts because I didn't want to be influenced. Good luck judges...you have a tough job ahead of you, and I don't envy you having to choose.
