Each year, at Close To My Heart's national convention, they hold a layout contest for their consultants. Participating in this contest is one of my favorite parts of the convention experience! This is my once a year chance to create a layout with no limits - no holds bar to speak; to be as creative as I wish without regards to cost, or product availability; or time. This year, the layout contest was focused around Disney's movie Inside Out which was also the theme of our convention. The challenge was to create a layout about one of our core memories and how it is affected, or impacted, our lives. I chose to reflect on our family's LoveWorks Journey and how discovering that first sculpture created this journey for our family and family together time.
The layout features many flip flaps, circuit cuts and lots of little accents and details. In addition, I created two little flip flap books on top of the layouts themselves.
My layout was not one of the winners in the layout contest, but the pride that I had for completing the layout, my way, was enough for me! Complete pun included, I simply "love" the layout!
