Seems like I'm the person "с обострённым чувством пунктуальности". Not. On the very second day of my promise to post every day this week, I screwed up. Seriously, my head and thoughts were here, but the opportunity wasn't. Sorry girls.

There was a page I made months ago but never shared it here because it was one of those "silent" pages. I was caught up in the design and playing with pretty papers that when the time came to add the journaling, I was lost at where to put it. That was before I started taking Ali Edward's "Storyology" class. Now I really try to think about my stories ahead of time. I can't add a page to my album without a story, it just doesn't feel right. I need your help with where to put it. Here's the page:

I cut out the letter L with my silhouette and used the negative piece. I saw this idea on Jennifer Gallacher's layout and always wanted to try it:

There's not a whole lot of journaling, but this page needs a story about their love. Should I add a pocket? Add journaling right on top of the page? Place it on the back of the layouts? Or redo the whole page? What would you do? I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you and I'll see you soon!

  1. Anya I am as "the best layout journalist" can suggest you a few things.
    First those picrues tell the story already.
    Second you do have letter L and their love alreday on the page, isn't that a journaling?! Well it lease to it is.
    Counclusion, this is very beautiful page, well done, and no way you should redo it. It looks complete!
    Just move on :)

  2. Sorry correction to the above sentence: Well at least to me it is!

  3. One letter "L" for journaling?... This might be just a little too little :) Are there any other suggestions?

  4. Thanks:) Maybe I should leave it like this... but where am I going to tell how she expressed her "love" to cat и как он всё это терпел...

Thats a sad story... these pictures make it look happy and a nice ending :-) keep up the great work. I love visiting your Blog!!!

  10. Ira unfortunately it was a sad ending to the very beautiful beginning. Their love was very special, so the story could be about those special moments.
    That is if Anya wants story anyway, I just don't like journaling so I would leave it like that.

  11. Yes, I did want the story to be about their relationship at the moment... I don't have to write about how we had to give him away... There will be another story - how she named her stuffed animal Mufasa and NEVER goes anywhere without him. She lost him at the grocery store last week, so I asked my girls check out the store TWICE, until they found him. Even I felt sad when she cried. Glad we found him :)
