A reminder to myself

Home, inspired and unpacked, I sat down Saturday night to create. Some quality time alone on the beach reminded me that I need quiet time to myself. This layout captures that need and will serve as a reminder for me.

The design is based on the current sketch at Frosted Designs. I loved it when I saw it and knew it would work well for this page.

I used the small items behind the main photo as hidden journaling cards so that I could keep my thoughts a bit more private. In addition to the hidden journaling, I love the die cut paper as the central element. I didn't have any in my stash that went with my project, so I created my own! I simply inserted one corner of the paper into my circle punch and viola! I used the paper that was removed on the first corner as a stencil to line up my punch for the next three corners and thus keep my corners the same size.


  1. Love this LO and the colours are great! The borders and strips of paper are awesome!
