:LAYOUT: Thankful For

The general design of the layout of this page was actually inspired by a American Express ad that I saw in a magazine.

I love the way that the photo on the right is balanced by the journaling on the right. Just as the floral transparency on the bottom left is balanced a bit by the date frame on the upper right.

For this journaling, I simply asked Kaitlin to tell me some of the things she was thankful for and she gave me quite a list! I did fill in a few extras that I know were also favorites of hers at the time the layout was created.

A fun way to break up journaling is to use a mix of fonts.
