Typically traveler notebook or TNs are taller but I found this handy size hard cover notebook with elastic stretch band closure at Dollar Tree! The price was right to continue experimenting with different variations of scrapbooking!
2nd entry in my Morris family notebook:
|from L to R: my Aunt Rachel, my dad John, my aunt Mary, and their cousin Carolyn|
[#1] I've tried to follow a color palette challenge and sketch design for the 1st entry:
[#1-A] Lisa's challenge is this sketch design= my Right page definitely reflect the sketch design very well; Left page has more changes with journaling/sub-titling running vertically and the 'header' section of the notepad was shifted down on my layout and instead of 1 paper/piece with 'tails', I've used 2 tag stickers that each have 'tails'. And it is all on top of a colorful patterned cardstock.

[#1-B] Lori's color board challenge (which I've got 4 of the 5)= peachy orange, mint green, robin egg blue, and bright pinks

[#2] APTS challenge blog's mid-month April prompt is Anything Goes (there is an optional twist to do 3 of 5 suggestions: tag, vellum, watercolor, die, and/or flower)--but just AG for my layout

More snapshots of this 2nd entry in my dad-related notebook=
Even though spring started one month ago, we had a snowstorm exactly one week ago on Palm Sunday. Today is Easter Sunday and these layout entries I made last night just evoke sunshine and springtime gardens for me! The color mix definitely makes one think of rainbows, jelly beans, all the flavors and colors of Jello, and even cupcake sprinkles!
Stay tuned to see what I'll be crafting next from my little piece of USA heartland!
