Freebie Template #1

Today is a special day in our household. Six years ago today, our son boarded a plane in Korea and came home to us! It's hard to believe it's been that long. It was a very special and exciting day.

The layout you see here is also very special for a few reasons. Not only does it commemorate his homecoming, but it is one of the very first layouts I've ever created where I did not use a template. Ironically, it is also the very last layout I scrapped. I made this page at the end of June and have not been able to scrap another page since. Maybe making a page from scratch zapped all the creativity out of me? I don't know.

Since I haven't been able to scrap (all attempts have ended in tears and frustration), I got to looking at this page and thinking that it would make a really great template. So, I decided to make one. It's not exactly scrapping, but it's a start! I think it turned out pretty well. So, I might as well share it!

  1. Thank you for sharing the cute template, so sorry you are finding it so hard to scrap, I have to admit when I am stuck I find that challenges and looking at my old layouts and thinking about what it is I like about certain pages helps spark an idea for a new one. Hope you get over your block soon. Hugs Crystal xx
