Once upon a time.....

...there was a scrapbooker whom forgot to tell a really important bunch of stories, the kind of stories that no-one else can tell.

Because it is her story.

I know I am not alone, as a memory keeper I feel compelled to tell everyone else's story even the dogs.
I collect memorabilia from everywhere I go and everything we do, and somehow my story doesn't seem important enough to make time to do it.

So I started collecting questions, they are questions that the kids have asked about, or titles from layouts and magazines that hit a cord within me. I printed them off into little slips of identical paper, folded them (so I couldn't filter out the hard questions) stuck them in a jar..... and that is where they have stayed for the last 12 months....

Until today when I thought I might give it a go and some of you might like to play as well....

So the universe handed me this question....

" what did you imagine your dream house would look like?"


After I finished laughing cause I certainly never imagined that I would be overrun with endless washing, cleaning and lets not forget the inbuilt taxi service attached to the house. Arrrr, nooo my dream house was much more spectacular and lets face it would be ORGANISED.

So inspired by Natalie Mays jacked layout I created this....

Journalling 
"Once upon a time I dreamed of running away from the country lifestyle that I only ever known, I dreamed of this. I dreamed of a colourful inner city dwelling where I would work as a nurse to support my real love of painting and sculpting.....The house would be full of amazing colours and trinkets and light to inspire.It would be a representation of my soul... I would cook vegetarian meals and have late night parties with other like minded souls...
I dreamed of a hippy, boho lifestyle and guess what?

 I still do

hehehheeheheh..... stayed tuned for later this month when I show you what my real life house looks like. Please play along. Your layout does not have to be inspired by the main scrapjack challenge, as long as the journalling is about the question you are able to  play...

upload your layouts to ... email  scrapjacker@me.com by the end of the month...

cheers Nx and the team
