this was such a great afternoon i had to document it. threw this layout together really quickly (quick by my standards) this evening. i'm not even sure i like it that much visually, but i needed to write down and show how ian and i were linked that afternoon by mutual interests :: the simpsons, harry potter, and lounging around in bed.

sometimes i get really wrapped up in the artistic energy required to scrapbook and i forget that it's all about telling the story about my family. so, here's to throwing something down on paper and not caring how it looks. hip, hip, hooray!

I think the layout looks good Y AND it also does a wonderful job in catching the memory/moment. I really love that you captured this moment too and right when it happened...I am only literally 200 years behind! and I do find myself trying to remember to scrap today even if I am not feeling motivated instead of jumping around all over the place. GREAT layout!
