I’ve spent this week talking a lot about my Dad. So it seemed fitting to share a layout telling one of his favorite stories from my childhood.
One year in elementary school, on my birthday, I wanted to share a rice crispy treat with my principal. My Dad was there that day and watched me switch the treat from hand to hand licking the stickiness off each time. It became a story he told time and again over the years.
I decided to make this page after making a pan of rice crispy treats. I thought of the story and decided it was time to document the story. So I grabbed a camera and snapped a shot of me holding a rice crispy treat. Who says you can’t recreate a photo to tell a story! :)
I used a fun bright border and ribbon to accent each of the photos. The colors remind me of candy, but also of the 80s, which is when the story takes place.
I dug through my photos and found this one of me with my principal at 6th grade graduation. It was fun to include a picture like this on a layout all about Mr. Miller. :)
I made these color blocks in Photoshop Elements and printed them out. All are from Crystal Wilkerson’s Spring/Summer line. Love her stuff!
The pink pen was a fun way for all this journaling. Hand written again! :) It may be hard to see, but I tell the whole story and reflect on what I learned when I became a teacher myself. I bet you can guess my lesson! :)
