Hi! I'm Allie from Alexandra Rae Design and Document Life Workshop, and I've been super inspired by the eBook "Scapbooking Your Single Years"-- even though I haven't been single in over 8 years! What I've been loving about this eBook is that it doesn't just focus on BEING single or the activities that go with it (like dating) but instead of documenting YOURSELF. There's nothing I love more than "about me" pages, and this eBook is full of ideas for documenting yourself.
Even though, like I said, I haven't been single in 8 years, I was still 100% inspired. One of my favorite layouts was an example of "document 10 things about yourself right now" from contributor Amy Tan. Although Amy's example was a paper layout, I wanted to use some of my digi supplies. I scraplifted her simple "one column down the middle" approach and still used a LOT of washi tape. I love that this page is a great snapshot of who I am at this moment in my life. The things that I documented may seem a bit trivial at the moment, but in 5, 10 years, I know I'll treasure knowing what I was thinking in March of 2013. I encourage you, single or not, to scrapbook a page about YOURSELF-- I promise, you won't regret it!

This next challenge is brought to you by Ali Edwards.
CHALLENGE: Grab a photo from a few years back and a photo from today and tell a story about the way things are different or the same. I love layouts that include images from the past and present. Today, your challenge is to use two photos from different time periods on your layout. My suggestion for the journaling is to write about how things are different or the same.
For my layout, I decided to use two photos of my daughter Anna - one from April 2009 and one from April 2012. She's been quite a handful lately as she navigates her own independence and I wanted to write some journaling that was written directly to her. My journaling became less about how things were the same or different, and more simply about things that I want her to know right now.
I used two 4" x 6" photos for my page and paired them with two 3 1/2" x 4" pieces of patterned paper. On top of those patterned paper pieces I added more embellishments including stamps, cards, word stickers, etc. I used foam dots to pop up some of the accents.
To finish off the page I added a hand-drawn border around the whole 12" x 12" layout.
The 3rd Annual Creative Crop is only 3 weeks away, see you then!
