Life Skills

We've been focused on life skills here at Casa deRosier. It's important to us that when we eventually send Trevor out into the world, he's as well-prepared as possible. I don't want him to be the guy in the college dorm who doesn't know how to do laundry, doesn't know how to pay bills, can't replace a button, and eats nothing but dry Ramen because he can't boil water. (That guy lived next door to me in the dorms back in the day. I like to think he's a bit more capable now.) So when my car got a flat tire, Trevor was the one to put on the spare.

I like how this layout turned out, and I wasn't sure why at first. It just feels really balanced to me. It wasn't until I scanned the page and saw it on my screen that I realized something cool. Look at the green and yellow gear embellishment. There's an arrow on the upper right, which I rotated so that it would point to the nail in the tire. I hadn't noticed, but it also points to Trevor. I love that!


  1. Ahhhh… nice design trick and love the colors on this layout! Trevor's future girlfriends, and wife, will thank you for teaching him "Life Skills" LOL!! Okay, I laugh, but I'm also serious... I have many friends whose husbands can't do stuff like this; they call someone. While my husband knows how to do it all, and if he doesn't he figures it out!

  2. This looks great!
    Glad he got the chance to put his life skills to test!:)
