Right now, for the month of February, you can download this template freebie from Sahlin Studio.
The reason I love templates is very simple, really.
They're super FAST.
I don't have to put any thought into the set up of my own layout. I do enjoy creating layouts. I spend a lot of time, tinkering and trying different positionings [is that even a word?] I wouldn't say I'm super fast at it. It probably takes me just as long to create a digital layout, as it does to create a paper layout. It's a good thing I love doing it so much. I guess that's why, getting a template is so much fun.
The layout is already done for me. Instead, I get to focus on:
- What story I want to remember/tell.
- What photos I want to use, to do the storytelling.
- What paper/elements/journal cards etc, will help me do that the best.
This Christmas break, we made our 3rd trip out to Kananaskis between Christmas and New Year's for a little getaway. This one was our best ski trips. The kids are both at such an awesome age.
I see families on the hill with tiny, tiny kids, and sometimes I think we should have started sooner. But we didn't, and you can't constantly live with 'should haves'.
The important thing is we did start. Barry and I were reminded just exactly how much we enjoy this winter sport. It's something that we can enjoy together as a family. All the quad chairs make it a family experience for sure. We go up as a foursome, and come down as a foursome.
Now, our only problem is, trying to fit in some ski days between hockey and ringette games and practices. That's not quite as easy as you think.
