lt’s all over. I produced a layout-a-day (almost) for 26 days. On our last and final day, yesterday, our prompt was to do anything we want. I discovered this photo on my sister-in-law’s Facebook page, so I stole a copy of it (I’m known for that with her and my brother…good thing they don’t mind!) because I think it’s a gorgeous representation of them.
I didn’t really plan this page, I just felt that a black background looked better than any of the other papers I tried, so I kept up the black and white theme with a touch of red for color. I seem to have this thing with filling up half the page with a margin-less photo, I’ve noticed. I think I got it from either Cathy Zielske or Laura Kurz…or both.
A disclaimer is necessary here, for personal reasons. I want to say to anyone reading this whom I personally know that I realize someone may feel some hurt by this but this is not my intention, of course. I feel strongly that not everyone is meant to be with the person they chose at first. This is perfectly okay (especially if you’re as imperfect as I am…but I don’t think anyone is!). Since life does not always turn out the way we think it’s supposed to (like I know from experience), we learn, we grow, and we move on to another stage in our lives where we find the person we are meant to be with. You, too, are probably half of another perfect match yourself right now. Sometimes, practice makes perfect (I would like to say I should know, but I’ll never be perfect.
