LOAD218 Day9 Follow Your Own Path

I am the featured designer today for LOAD218. So much fun!!

If you’re participating in LOAD then you’ve already seen this but if not, I thought I’d share the layout I created to inspire everyone.

The prompt is about following your own path and being a trailblazer. I couldn’t think of any way that I’ve been a trailblazer so my thoughts took me down the “wandering path” line. We took our kids to Edinburgh during our epic 3-ish week European tour last summer because a) it is such a beautiful and fun city that if you’re in Scotland it’s a must see, and b) I lived there for almost 2 years after university so I must breathe the air every time I’m in the country or my heart hurts!! While we were there my cousin’s girlfriend (now fiance – yay Kenny!) took us to all the different places where J.K. Rowling got inspiration for her Harry Potter series. My eldest was in heaven! My husband not so much, but who cares, right? LOL!

Here’s all the details up close and easy to see. First the 12×12 page with all the photos and pretty papers.

PS – that strip of blue unicorns has meaning to this layout beyond a way to bring in more blue. The unicorn is Scotland’s mascots! (No, it’s not the Loch Ness Monster!!)

And now the journaling 6×12 page so if you want to read it, you’ve maybe got a fighting chance!

This is the only close up of the photos that I took because this moment was particularly poignant. My eldest putting her hands into J.K. Rowling’s hand prints (golden hand prints no less!) I think this was her favourite part of the tour.

And then a close up of my wandering path. The map was one I found online and printed onto card stock. I then took my colour scheme cues from it.

Thanks for looking. I’ve got another layout and video to shoot today so I’d better get busy!

Have a great day. See you soon.
