A Lesson to Learn ;)

This was the fastest layout I've ever done. I wanted to focus it on the story and not on the "looks". To be honest this is *not* one of my favorite layouts BUT it is one of my favorite journaling/notes I've done. See, Cristian needed to learn a (very important) lesson and after praying and talking A LOT to him he seems to be getting it now. In fact, a few days ago he comes out of the blue to tell me, "Mama, I understand now. Thank you." It felt so good and I wanted to put all these thoughts and the big lesson fast on a layout so that I wouldn't forget anything. And of course the journaling is on the back of the page. I am not sure if you know but I have been writing long notes/letters in the back of my layouts for yearssssss. I like it this way because I can write all I want without ever running out of space. Have fun. PS I'll be back soon to show you a Penny Black stamp haul. YUMMY!


Lesson for you: Do not feel you have to write all your journaling on the front of the page. If you can not fit it all USE THE BACK and journal away! 

**Recipe for Jen**

Salmon Steaks with Hoisin Glaze  by Martha Stewart (OF COURSE!) 
Prep time: 5 min    Total time: 18 hours...just kidding! HA!

1 tb fresh orange juice
2 tb hoisin sauce 
2 tsp honey
4 salmon steaks (each 8 to 10 oz and 1 in thick)  *or you can just put that whole baby in the oven and pray ahahahahah*
Coarse salt & fresh ground pepper

1- Heat the broiler. In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, hoisin sauce & honey to make the glaze.

2- Rinse the salmon steaks, and pat dry.
Season both sides with salt n pepper.
Place the steaks on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush generously with the glaze.  (at this point is where I usually make a "2nd badge" or more glaze ahahahahah)

3- Broil the salmon about 4 inches from the heat source, basting once, until opaque in the center, 10 to 13 minutes.

My feelings are that scrapbooking should focus on the journaling, so the pictures and embellishments would just be the highlights around that story. Know what I mean?
I love this layout? I adore Cristian, He will be a strong believer and will bring many to our Lord, because you two are praying with him and showing him the way!!! Yeay for our strong young believers!!!

Oh Dayami, your fast layouts are as beautiful as the one's that take you hours. It's just that you have a way with your layouts that show you put your heart into each one with pictures and journaling. Thank you so much for your tip on writing on the back, It's a great idea and I'm going to make use of it. Hugs and God bless.

Eve! I'm glad you liked it and yes, definitely start journaling in the back! You'll love it.
I like to tell all the story and put lots of details cause lets face it, I already forget things so imagine if 10 years, ha! So write away!

Jen! thats awesome about your friend. And yes, we have to pray for this world, its upside down but it will be upright sooner than we think :)
