Like Mother Like Son

I want to show you the Book Review Presentation chart that Jared completed last weekend. He had used my digi scrapbooking supplies to make the frames and backgrounds for his write-ups, printed them out, cut them to size, and when he came to gluing them onto the board, he arranged them all skewed and scattered around! "You're not gonna line them up straight?" "No!" came the answer, "I like it random, for it to flow, to be creative." I was so amused! I had not suggested anything to him, and don't you think his presentation looks rather like my layouts??? :) lol
In other aspects I'm not sure he is like me at all. We were watching Heroes which was on our cable "marathon" style with season 3 all shown on one day, and I asked the boys, if you had special powers like them, would you be a hero or a villian? Ryan gave me a 'i'm not going to answer you' look, but Jared shot right back, " I'd be a mischief." He understands himself so well. lol

I finally caught up with my next 14 days of 365 photos, this page was so easy to do and so much fun, I'm getting the knack of linear layouts with a touch of embellishment for interest!

You know, I'd like to share how Project 365 is impacting me:
1. I find it more and more fun! I loved that I'm really capturing the everday of our lives!
2. I think everyday, how am I going to come up with new ideas for photos for the so routine life of mine? And yet somehow I find them, even in the seemingly mundane! The trick is not being too hard on myself, and letting myself miss a day or two and make up by 'cheating' a little with double photos some other day.
3. But most significant of all, doing Project 365 is making me realise our days are passing by SO QUICKLY! I told dh about it yesterday and we both reiterated to each other how we must LIVE! We told ourselves, whatever we want to do, plan to do, thought of doing, do it!
What thoughts do you have from participating in, or seeing others' Project 365?

  25. Isn't a shock to find out just how alike and how different our children are from ourself. Jared's project looks great and he is definitely got his mother's artistic leanings. And I loved his response to your question about heros. :)

    Thanks for the great templates.

  27. I am pretty new to digi. Wondering how you got the plain white background? Thanks! Kristen

  28. Hi Kristen,

    You mean the plain white background on my 365 layout? I use photoshop, so I simply add a new layer ( moving it to the lowest layer, below all the photos) and then go to edit , fill, foreground color, making sure foreground color is white.
