time for challenge 64 at journaling junkie. the task this time was to follow a sketch from little shop of sketches. no specifics on the theme, we have a freehand on the topic as long as we use the sketch.
i created my layout a little differently. i wanted to use this kraft paper i've had for the longest time. by using it, it's not a direct lift of the sketch but the essence is still there. i think it worked well on my design. plus, i was able to use (again) these studio photos of our family.
"Everything begins and ends with family." They are the people who completes my life. I feel joy and contentment when I am with them. Hardships are easier to endure with their support. They will not judge you. Instead, they will accept you body and soul for who you are. Triumphs are sweeter when shared with family. We are not perfect but we all fit. Do I change anything with them? Probably not! I am who I am, they are who they are. Together we are a family. The bonds are stronger, the love eternal. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but beside them, with them and for them. They make me happy. And for that, I will always be thankful.
