I would like to note that the background (bricks on tattered angels canvas) for this Family layout was inspired by a fellow designer/instructor from my local scrapbook store where I also design and instruct. Although her beautiful layout is not online, you can find her blog here. One of my favourite aspects of this layout is the hidden journaling. Not only do I love the texture on the Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine Envelope but I like having somewhere to write personal thoughts for my family to read in the future. Be sure to check back for a tutorial on how to achieve this texture on the envelope!
I love this Meeting Time Holtz layout even though it did not turn out the way I had hoped and expected (and if you have never finished a layout and thought "this is NOT what I had in mind" then you are one lucky scrapbooker!). For this layout, the journaling was important to me - I needed to have a spot to explain who Tim Holtz was and why these photos and tags made me so excited! Although my fellow scrapbookers might not need much explanation - my husband sure did!! HaHa. Here is a close up of the journaling:
