Today this layout is featured at Ideas for Scrapbookers:
When I took the pictures, I wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go with the layout except to tell the stories of Trevor's favorite restaurants and his nicknames for them. I knew I needed a ton of journaling space to tell the stories. I typed up my journaling first (another very unusual thing for me, both that I typed it and that I did it first), printed photos, and laid it out. I added the title and carefully, painstakingly measured the whole darn thing to make sure my spacing was perfect. (That's unsual too. I hate measuring.) This was the result:
Tombow is repositionable for the first few minutes) and sliced apart the layout to make a title strip that exposes two little lines of blue. Much better.

I don't think it looks bowed! I loveeeeee this! What an awesome thing to document! :):):):):):):)ReplyDelete
I only noticed the bowed text once you pointed it out. I'm so glad you've recorded what he calls the places. I remember being so confused when he said we needed to choose a place for dinner from "the place where they cook the food" and "peanuts on the floor." These are treasures!ReplyDelete
