True Stories Prompt 3

I managed to complete a LO today based around the third prompt in Shimelles True Stories class. I took the 'Repeat and Rinse' idea and wrote a list of things about Emma with the sentence opener 'This girl...' The journalling is on different journalling spots included in the Sarahs Cards Kit for this month and then they're layered using foam pads etc to give a bit of dimension. I've hidden one piece of journalling under another at the bottom and on this I've written some of her less desirable qualities. I figured in years to come she'd be glad that I've hidden these from easy viewing!

On a different note, I'm absolutely loving the papers in this kit. They're the Restoration collection from Crate Paper and they're right up my street. Can't wait to use them more.


  1. What beautiful photos and a fantastic LO x

  2. Nice layout - I really like how you used a journal spot for each sentence. I'm sure not only will she appreciate your hiding the less admirable qualities, but she'll probably get a laugh out of them years from now when she has kids of her own. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love how you used the journaling spots.

  4. What a sweet LO. And I love her eyes!

  5. Lou,
    This is a beautiful layout!!I love how the photos aren't lost in the layout, how you have a nice balance of elements along with some white space to rest your eyes, and how you have the touch of girlie and vintage included as well.
    Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to CHA CP reveals! EEk!
    Hugs and JOY from across the pond! ;-)
