For my first layout, I focused on my husband and me. I love our relationship and how we have been able to move forward each year. We have grown and I am proud of us.
I used the bulls eye paper because it has circles. I went with that idea of eternal love as circles go round and round. To jazz up the paper and add some color, I placed down the circle in the middle and used the wood tag with the Always rub-on. I also used the clock to represent the passage of time. Plus, the sentiment is great! I used the heart rub-ons and made them fly out from the "us".
Relationships are hard work and require daily attention. I think it is important to be reflective about where you are in your relationship and where you want to be. I journaled my feelings about how Steve and I have gotten better over time. We have a new set of challenges ahead of us as Steve is taking on a new job. His hours will change and our teacher summers will disappear! It will be quite an adjustment, but I am ready to hold hands and jump!
I realize I have a verb disagreement in my journaling. I decided to go with it. The words really are for me. I hope to look back on this page years from now and know that we handled this challenge well...that all my looking forward worked out!
