I Made a Layout!
I used to read about designers who would lament about never making layouts and I always thought that was really dumb. However, what goes around come around, and I'm finding myself in the same situation! I'm doing a lot of reworking and uploading of older projects, and also I'm working on kits that aren't necessary applicable to my own photos, so I'm in a bit of a layout desert. I am trying to take more photos this month to have something to work with...and I'm pondering my Egypt photos, but I don't think the time is quite right for them yet.
Anyway, yesterday I suddenly realized it was March and back in January I had determined to do a review layout every month. So I quick made my list for February. Despite forgetting my promise to do this, I think it will really be great to look back at these monthly pages. The list format is short enough that it doesn't take a ton of time, but it still captures those special moments you're likely to forget.
Here's the list so you don't have to squint:
1. Valentine's Date: Saw the new Die Hard Movie.
2. Rereading Mary Russell Series.
3. Won tickets to Cirque de Glace.
4. Song of the month: "Fell on You" by Francis and the Lights.
5. Enjoyed the school play "Peter Pan."
6. Movie of the Month: The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
7. Also enjoyed movies "Argo" and "Robot & Frank."
8. Buying sweaters at the special table at the Friday Market.
9. Oscar Party! I had the most correct predictions, 15!
10. Spring arrived before the month was over!
The template is up too if you want to make your own list. The kit I used is one that will be coming sometime...
Hi There! I’m Marisa Lerin and you’ll see me around at Pixel Scrapper a lot. I started this site in 2010 soon after I discovered a new love in digital scrapbooking. Pixel Scrapper has gone through some significant changes since that time and it’s grown into this lovely community site you are seeing now. I am daily surprised by the turn of life’s events that has led me down this path. If you're new to the site, welcome! Here are a few tidbits about me that I hope will help you get to know me better!
I’m originally from Minnesota, USA, but spent a good chunk of my childhood living abroad (in Bolivia and Hong Kong). I returned to Minnesota to attend university, got married and then moved overseas again (Korea, then Jordan and 1 year of traveling). My designs are heavily influenced by these many nomadic years. I am currently back in the USA, now living in the great state of Oregon!
I have no official training for what I’m doing, since I decided very wisely (haha) to study physics in university. I am always learning new things about digital scrapbooking, and this community has been immensely helpful for that!
If I manage to stop digital scrapbooking you will probably find me watching TV, reading or baking. I also enjoy writing for the blog here at Pixel Scrapper where I talk about whatever happens to be catching my fancy at the moment.
