Layout of the Week #67- Scrapbooking Childhood Memories

This week for the Layout of the Week, I thought it would be fun to scrapbook a childhood memory.
We usually focus on our children or other people and rarely focus on ourselves.
Of course, if you prefer, you could use this tutorial to document about somebody else:)

Here's the layout we'll be creating.
I used a photo of one of my favorite dolls from when I was little and wrote down
memories I have of her.
This layout is very simple and quick to put together. Because we're using a busy print, there's not too much that we have to add.

To make it, you'll need:
one 12"x 12" piece of pattern paper- preferably with a busy print
one strip of pattern paper measuring 6 1/2"x 1"
three circular pieces- can be pattern paper or small doilies- I used View master reels
journaling card- a 4"x 6" note card will do
letter stickers for the title
stickers to match your theme
paper trimmer
First, place your journaling card along the right edge of the pattern paper about two inches from the top. Use letter stickers to add the title along the side of the journaling card.
I used a journaling card with a pre-printed title.

Place your photo to the left and slightly lower than the journaling card. Before adhering it, slide the three circular pieces behind the photo. One should be behind the top left corner and the other two should overlap one another behind the lower right corner.

Place the pattern paper strip measuring 6 1/2" x 1" along the left edge of the photo.

Now it's time to add a few stickers. Place one in the upper left corner of the photo, one at the bottom left corner of the photo, and two or three at the bottom right corner.

Write on your journaling card-jot down a memory from when you were young- and you're done!
Now, doesn't it feel good to have scrapped one of your own childhood memories?
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding
in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
1 Chron. 15:58
