I continue to love Ali Edward's monthly story themes. I subscribe to her story kit, which always includes such amazing products, but what I find myself loving even more are the story prompts. Ali has a way of making me dig deep in order to tell my stories. May's story theme was "little things". I am a bit late keeping up with the prompts, but I always enjoy creating these layouts.
Earlier this year, I decided that I am using these story theme prompts to tell my story. While I enjoy documenting our family story, and my own stories and memories often get overlooked.
Using one of Ali's layouts as inspiration, I decided to document 36 little things that I am grateful for. 36 little things - one for each year of my life.
In Photoshop, I cropped a 8.5 x 11 inch photo of myself. I added 36 little things that I am grateful for right now. I printed at home and added a chipboard sticker from the kit to the top of the layout. The '3' and '6' were from my stash - and I layered the plastic "little things" right over the numbers. Super simple, and most importantly, done!
And here is how it looks in my album.
