Today we're featuring the December kit, My Life by Ali Edwards
This set has some great journaling prompts. Perfect for year end or all about me pages.
Here is a layout I made with the stamp set
Landscape 8 1/2" x 11" pages don't fit too well in the Blogger template. Here are some closeups
I stamped the Ongoing Story sentiment on a little office envelope from Basic Grey Clippings.
Me today @45 and my changing role. When I had Mary Rose 13 years ago I went back to work full time when she was 12 weeks old. Then I had Willie 8 years later. I had him the day before I turned 40. Anytime someone asks me if I did anything special when I turned 40 I tell them that I spent the day in the maternity ward with a brand new baby. Best birthday ever. Then I resigned from my job and got to be a stay at home mom. Best job ever. Willie was diagnosed Autistic when he was 2, and I've been managing services and keeping our house like a revolving door with different therapists coming in and out. My time staying at home has stretched longer than we planned. Willie will be going to kindergarten in the fall, and if I'm able to survive all of the transition meetings, IEP, and school selection I'm going to try to go back to work and bring some money into this house.
This is a lot more than I wrote on the layout, but I felt it needed a bit of a back story.
Here are the rest of the stops on the hop:
