a conversation with matthew

When I saw this post on Ali Edwards' blog, I knew I had to do the same. In fact, I've had an interview style layout in the back of my mind for years now, I was just never able to make it come to fruition. All the day-to-day things always got in the way -- dishes, laundry, meals, you know the drill. These are the things that usually get in the way of my creative time. I'm not complaining, though. ::smile::

This time, however, since it was mostly digital, I decided to get this layout done while I was organizing the files on my computer. Multi-tasking is a wonderful skill to have! ::laugh::

I later decided that I didn't want to print out the entire digital layout -- I wanted to make it a hybrid layout as Cathy Zielske did with hers. I followed her instructions and I love the way it turned out. The photo of how it turned out is not so great:

This layout was so much fun and I'm so glad that I was able to capture this information! I've done the same thing with Anberly, however it's not quite finished. I plan on adding it to the same week in my Project Life because the interview was done that same week.

I am hoping that I remember to do this project at least once a year. Kids' opinions and tastes change so frequently that it would be wonderful if there was a record of it that they could look back on later in life.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope to see you again soon!
