Listen to your voice

Hello friends! Here's the story of the following layout. It all started with this old BG paper (I sort of dig all those old papers in my stash lately, go figure! Maybe I'm just trying to convince myself that I wasn't all so wrong about buying them in the first place...) Anyway, having looked at it, I had an idea for a layout's design, in one word: a sketch was born in my mind. Then I started looking for a story to go with it, was browsing through my pictures and thought: Hey, this one is so cool, I love it! Why not write something about it? The story wasn't long and was going somewhere along complicity lines, big brother was supposed to be the title and was supposed to be where the journaling is now. Then, I read what one of my favorite scrapbookers, Moon Ko, wrote on Write.Click.Scrapbook blog, about finding our own voice (and not being cheesy). And while working on my layout and not feeling completely satisfied with my little story and thinking about what I'd write about this layout here on the blog (and it was all about how much I loved my son's expression on this picture), it hit me. There it was, my voice in my head, telling me what I loved about the picture and I wasn't to listen to it? No way! So I've changed my title, squeezed it in between the papers, wrote my new journaling and well, felt much better... :)
Finally, here it is (and the new journaling reads: I like to track in your faces promises of what you'll be like in the future. Responsible big brother, a dreamer, handsome, that's how I see Jonatan on that picture. And I love what I see!)

Supplies: cardstock Bazzil Basics; stickers Toga & AC; paper BG; brads We R Memory Keepers; punch Fiskars

Or maybe that's cheesy? ;) Anyway, I'll keep the original sketch for another story. But I like this version, too! If not better! Have a nice weekend!

superbe page et je suis bien d'accord, si on arrive a entendre la muse alors la création peu importe de laquelle, prend une autre dimension.
