No, I'm not referring to this (in all of my 2002, soft-focus glory, when I thought I should go by "Cathryn" in magazine print, because it made me seem smarter somehow, until I realized that when I actually met people in real life, they could call me all the live long day by that name and I'd be like, "Do you mean me?"), but rather, my own personal Hall of Fame. I'm talking about layouts that over time, hold up. Layouts that when I see them, I think: I could do this page, and this design, over and over and over. They're that good.
Do you have those pages? The ones where you say, "I really AM good at this scrapbooking thing."
As I've been immersed in developing my class for Big Picture Scrapbooking (and in a few weeks, I'll have the specific details, cost, etc. ready to roll out, so check back for that), I've been spending much more time with all of these pages that are filling the binders of my life. And because it was so fun to share one yesterday, I'm doing it again today, even if it doesn't have the new layout smell.
Why? Because I like it.
(And for those of you who read my blog and think, "Get a dog already!" I appreciate that sort of enthusiasm, but really, I'm not physically or emotionally ready for that type of commitment. I'm so not kidding.)
But back to the page…I love this design, and the journaling approach. Anyone can do a page like this. You can dress it up more, but the basic design foundation is solid. I also love pulling photos from different points in time, as well. And let's face it: I was adorable, KISS t-shirt and all.
More Personal Hall of Fame entries later, gators.
