Shellbyj's photo journal

Anyone can post a photo journal. If there is a page you absolutely love, post it here along with your inspiration, why you chose the kit, what the photo meant, if you tried new techniques, etc. You can post inspiration for others, or ask for advice if you are stuck. 
If you have a tutorial you have written, please share it here! If you have participated in a photo a day, showcase your layout, show the list you followed if you did.

you are welcome to put a link in to the kit you chose, but remember this is more for inspiration and showcasing your talents.

Today has been dreary day. It's cold and rainy so the only option was to stay in doors. Lack of sleep the night before did not add anything to my mood. I need sunshine, hence why I am so eager to get back to Florida. So I scrapped about my desire to get back home to the state I love. I have done two layouts recently about my desire to be back home. I can only share one right now as one I scrapped with an awesome template pack coming out Friday.

My Inspiration for this page mainly came from the word art. I searched for a png of the state of Florida and then clipped a paper to it. I then used an element to pin point my home on the map. I also used an edge treatment on the page to give it more of a grungy feel. I used Created by Jill's This is Where I Belong and Mismatched Edges 1.
Scrapping about my home made me feel better. Scrap Therapy and a glass of wine are great ways to deal with life =)

Head on over to this post and grab a free template for rounded edged journal cards! This informative blog post also addresses some of the uses of the every popular journal card in pocket scrapping and traditional scraps!

With the invention of the camera phone we all have a camera on us at all times. I love the PL and pocket page templates for these photos. Since I am not great at capturing my everyday and journaling is not my strong point, I use these templates to make pages for my Iphone photos every month. Even though I am not great at journaling I still like to add what's going on in the picture so PL templates are perfect for my needs. Here are a few examples of my pages

I average about 4-5 layouts per month in this style. It makes a nice record of the photos I took on my phone!
