JOURNAL IT: Dictionary Words

0
Photobucket
Welcome to another journal it series. "Journal It" is where you can find help with journal inspiration or where you can find a quote that you can use on about on almost ANY layout. I hope this will help to inspire you. You could use the prompts in many different ways... you might use the prompt on your layout and stop right there, you may not need to journal more... Whereas other times these prompts might inspire you to write about something even deeper. Feel free to check out this weeks prompt below. If you missed any, you can check out any previous prompts. And be sure to come back because I'll be posting a new journaling prompt every other Monday!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial Day holiday! I hope your day is full of fun picnic and family plans...and because I'm sure many of you are busy, I'll make today's "Journal It" post short and sweet.

Today's I want you to focus on: Dictionary Words.

Yep, it is time to drag out the old Webster's for some help in the journaling department. Journaling is all about the words, and what better place to look for inspiration than in a book full of words.

You might be surprised at how looking through a dictionary can inspire your journaling.

You could:
1. Use a dictionary word as your title and journal around it's meaning. Maybe it is a definition of an event or a word that describes a loved one's personality.
2. Use an actual dictionary entry on your page. You can see in my example below what that looks like.

Photobucket
I thought that one definition summed up the whole photograph of the beautiful women in my life. I didn't feel like it needed any more journaling than that one definition. However, you could go on to describe how the people in that photo are beautiful and what they mean to you. Or describe the event surrounding the photo. See where just a simple dictionary definition can take you?

I hope this dictionary idea has been a help and if you are ever inspired by any of the journal it series, be sure to share a link to your layout in the comments section, so you can inspire others!

Realistic Shadows at a "click" of a button!

0
.
.

I am SUPER excited to show you what I have for you today!! After quite a few emails, PM's, requests and questions about my shadows... I decided to make them into a shadow style collection, based from my own personal layouts. (Ooh.... I should give a shout out to all of you girls that were on my chat a while back and begged for them!) If you don't know exactly what a style is.... It is a type of file that you load into your Photoshop, it will create buttons so that you are able to instantly shadow at one "click of a button". Pretty cool, eh?? If you want to take shadowing to a whole 'nother level, be sure to look at this tutorial on my blog.

All New Releases at 20%OFF
from Friday - Sunday!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone has sunshine where they are. It feel like it's been along time coming where I'm at... but it is final here. SUNSHINE! Doesn't it make you just feel a little more happy?

I am so excited to bring this kit to my The LilyPad shop. It is probably my most favorite kit to date that I've created!! I hope you think so too! Also new today, is a cool little alpha that coordinates well with, My Happiness, or with most any other kit. Be sure to grab the freebie for My Happiness too (below).


"My Happiness" was offered recently with Plant Your Story's Self-Portrait class, I hope a few of you took advatange of this amazing series and class. And if you haven't heard Sara ( Of Zinnias and Swallowtails) and Crystal Livesay started a website called, Plant Your Story. I am so excited about this site becuase it is an entire site dedicated to focusing our 'stories'. I am a huge believer in capturing and documenting our stories, and I think this will be a source of inspiration and encouragement for anyone who finds themselves wanting to tell their own stories. Plant Your Story will be offering their journal prompts and template series, as a guide in helping others to tell their stories. I was thrilled to be a part of their first class!
