What does it take?

Hello! I came to a conclusion that I should never promise anything again. But I'm not going to promise that, because it will be another promise.
Does your menu vary between seasons? Ours does. We definitely eat more soups in colder weather. Just looking at the bright colors of fall makes me want to cook something warm for dinner. It was nice and bright yesterday, but pretty chilly, so I made Lasagna soup for dinner.


I almost never follow a recipe exactly. To make this one in a healthier version, I added white beans to it. The kids loved it! Definitely making it again.

And now back to scrapbooking. I was carrying this idea for months, but when I finally decided to make a page, I realized there's no way I can summarize everything on one layout. Here is the first page about my husband and his "hobby". I know it's so much more than that, but we just call it so.


I used a wood grain embossing folder for the background - thought it fits perfectly for the story. To make the whole page look more manly I stayed with shades of brown. Used my Silhouette to cut out musical signs and the title. Here is the story:


 I had to use a very small font size to fit the journaling onto the space I left for it.

 
So happy to have this page done! It's such a big part of our life and it has a long and great story to go with it. I need at least three more layouts to cover it.

Very nice day out there today! Have to go enjoy it... I didn't have my morning walk, so I might go take one now with my little ones!

Until next time!

  12. Anya I would have comment on you layout first, only because I could paritally see how much effort Vitya put into making those dombras. It is such a great memory for Vitya and for anyone not knowing where our dombras came from. You should put it in a frame and put it on the wall in Vityas office. Love how you descibed it all and love the pictures and the finished look! Sorry from Ritta about dropping dombra ;(
