My Favorite Place | Reverse Hybrid Layout by Megan Anderson

The challenge at Document Life Workshop this week is to document your favorite place. I’m really a sappy “Home is Wherever I’m With You” person, but I’ve documented that. What I haven’t really documented is my favorite place on the map, and that just happens to be the city … Continue

Reasons to Take a Photo Walk

I’m currently taking Grammar Free Journaling from Angie Lucas c/o Big Picture Classes, and I’m loving the class so far. Journaling is not one of my weaknesses (I was a writer way before I was a scrapbooker), but CONCISE journaling is not my strong suit. I’m loving that this … Continue
