This is a layout I didn't expect to happen. Does that ever happen to you? Out of the blue comes true, heartfelt journaling that you never planned to write? Well, that is what happened here. I started this layout working on the challenge over at The Design Experiment. I loved the concept of opening a dictionary and dropping my hand on a word to start a layout. Well, my finger landed on "reverse". I started to flip through my photos to see what inspiration hit me and...here you have it. I wish I could reverse time. If for nothing else, than to develop a true, strong relationship with my little sister. Funny how scrapbooking can do this to us. Bring out our deepest feelings in our art. I love that, but it's a bit hard to swallow sometimes when I have to face the reality of my thoughts.


  1. That's a wonderful layout..

    I wanted to do that challenge, but would you believe I don't have a single dictionary anywhere in this house? We've been here two years next month, and still no dictionary.

    Pick me out a word Jing :)

  2. Jennifer, this is absolutely beautiful, and such a beautiful sentiment. It's taken 40 years, but my big sis and I are finally close again. There will never be anyone ever quite like a sister!
