I shared our August evacuation story from the LNU Lightning Complex fire after we returned home. This is the scrapbook version.

Actually, this is Part 1 of the scrapbook version. This tells the story of the evacuation-turned-vacation ("evacucation") and what a great time we had with the friends who took us in. I'm planning a second layout that focuses on the actual fire and how close it got to our house.
I made this layout for the Pensieve: Memories in Review challenge at Victoria Marie Designs. The challenge was to preserve a memory in detail. Most of my layouts do that, as I'm a big fan of using lots of photos and plenty of journaling, but I made this one specifically to meet the challenge. I tried to show (through pictures) and tell (through words) about the emotions as well as the facts. I'm very happy with the finished page.
