This page is a great example of “curating a story”. I’ve had it percolating in my head for months.
The photo was taken in February when we went up to Nashville for Jon’s memorial service. It has already been featured in that week’s Project Life pages.
The journaling was written for a prompt for the My Details class in April. I was still unpacking the house and not scrapping, but I did a lot of writing for possible future pages during that time.
The design is a direct scrap lift of a page I made in May. I knew I’d be making more simple pages like that again.
The page came together in July, following the “one photo, many words” prompt from my Inspired Scrapbooking class.
I love how inspiration can come from several different directions and combine into something really special.
Journaling reads- Crossing the bridge and seeing the skyline was always one of my very favorite things. It was the transition place between my parents’ houses, and a few years later, between work and home. I would feel a sense of excitement, but of calm as well. Of belonging to a city that was thriving and busy, but familiar and homey at the same time. It did my angst-y teenage heart good to see that skyline, to cross that river. It was where I belonged, where I thought I would always be.
Another Nashville Love page from a year ago.
