It’s a Musical Life {Feeling Crafty}

The daily prompts from Lain at Layout a Day (LOAD) are always inspiring and help me create layouts and document stories that I don’t normally think to tell. Just like when I heard the prompt “Seeds of the Future,” my mind went to my aptitude tests from high school and that the careers I have chosen have closely aligned with those choices (business school/marketing, fashion merchandising, architecture). But as I searched for photos to help tell that story, I came across the photo I used of my 10-yr old self trying to play the guitar!

I knew immediately the story I needed to document was how important music has always been to our family. I pulled some old My Mind’s Eye papers and had fun punching and fussy cutting the hexagons and adding layers and dimension to the layout. Getting the journaling into hexagons was a bit tricky using Word, but I wanted to continue the theme!

Are there seeds from your past that have developed in unexpected ways? I’d love to hear about it in the comments, even share a link to a photo, a layout, a blog post… anything that helps tell your story!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!

Live creatively!

    When I saw the prompt video I really liked the older photo paired with a close up, present day one. I’m going to do that today! Awesome job on the hexagon journaling! I don’t have the patience for that, but it really was worth the effort here, looks great!

    Your pages are beautiful – I’m sure your girls will love pouring over them one day! You mentioned sharing stories & I have a few extra moments so here you go!
    I read this one poem in high school that didn’t mean much at the time, but when I studied it in college this year, its meaning married with a whole lot of other things & suddenly it became a favourite. I blogged about it here (: http://amybareham.wordpress.com/2013/11/07/whitman-job-why-pretending-gets-us-nowhere/
