Digital Scrapbook Layout | A Conversation With Simon 2013

So often we make this memory keeping stuff way too complicated. I know because I do it myself. I love having something simple like a basic list of questions & answers to document specific things about life right now.

Cathy released this great layered template at Designer Digitals back in 2011: Story Guide Layered Template No.1 (one of the great things about digital is that the products you love don't go away). I used it to document a bit of Simon's story (see it here) in 2011 and then asked Simon this same series of questions this past week. His birthday week seemed like a great time to do it again.

I also added a Stacked Dates 2013 circle to the template.

Printed here at home on my Epson R2000.

And just like back in 2011, this one will go straight into Project Life as an insert for this week.

    I love this. Personally, i would add the question: How old are you? to this; i hate having to do "age math" when I look at my layouts.

    I just had to go back and compare his answers to last year. Some things are the same, but you can see him growing up.

    Good taste Simon, my favorite food is pizza too :)

    The kid knows who he is. :)

    This made me teary. My youngest son is dyslexic and is 16. If you ask him who his best friend is he will always answer me(mom). I think because they know we have been and will continue to always be there for them. We have witnessed their struggles and triumphs in life. They don't have to wear a mask in our presence, they know they are loved unconditionally, and therefore there is a level of comfort, acceptance, and peace in our presence. Love, love my boy. I have two older children that are wonderful, but I truly believe my youngest child has provided my greatest learning experiences in life.

    All the best to you and Simon.
