I've had the luxury of working from home for the past several years designing blog content and managing design teams. For nearly 4 years I was the blog hostess for ScrapbookSteals.Com, which I dearly loved. It was through my time with them that I was introduced to a very innovative company called Kiwi Lane Designs.
Fast forward a couple of years and I'm now the Kiwi Lane—work at home—Social Media director / blog hostess / Design Team coordinator. I love it. I love the ladies I work for. I love that they are all outstanding and righteous women that get that family comes first. I have been so truly blessed.
Anyhow, being that I'm the Bloggy person for Kiwi Lane, I kind of get to make up my own assignments. At the beginning of the year I was pretty adamant that we have a feature called Write From the Heart, as journaling has always been my passion when scrapbooking. It's all about the who's, what's, when's and wheres because you better believe those darling little great-great-great grandchildren with the little turned up—freckly noses are going to wonder about the people in the photos in your scrapbooks. Don't make them guess! Hand it to them with a silver spoon! (Cause heaven only knows you don't really want to be mistaken for your brothers—sister in laws—mothers—cousin). ;)
My turn rolled around today on the blog, so I thought I would do Susan Budge (my awesome boss lady) proud, and make a two pager. I hate two pagers. She thinks I do a good job with them. They make my brain hurt, but alas, I did need to have a little more working space, so this is what I made.
Of course I needed to allow enough space for journaling, so two of the journaling cards in the Teresa Collins Everyday Moments collection.
I used some of the Kiwi Lane Designer Templates that we are featuring this month to create these cute lil' embellishments.
It's strange how some days are quite easy when it comes to thinking about dad being gone, but other days are kind of rough. I'm just so glad we have lots of happy memories.
