"A flight from the real world"

This layout is about the joy of reading. I've always loved books and I've been reading since I was 5. The books have been my friend, my inspirator, my laugh maker and my escape. The books always helped me develope my imagination. These days I'm not reading so much my self because I'm doing something more important; I'm passing this precious gift on to my girls. Fortunately the girls are loving it! And in a few years I see us sitting in the sun and taking a flight from the real world:-)

Testimony: inspirational word: flight

Evidence: rosette, circles

And this I have to credit this amazing scrapper; http://naopcapps.blogspot.com/2012/04/tcr108-cards.html

I've been thinking about this layout since I saw it, and you can see my page is really inspired from this:-)

What a precious photo, Arnlaug, and such a beautiful story! Love the artsy background and the scattering of elements you added that look like they're bursting from the book and taking flight!

Simply, beautifully scrapped, creating a sense of homely warmth :)

The bits and placements of the bits are cleverly placed.  Love the treatment of the photo and just adore the freshness of the design and final product.

What a beautiful layout! I love the white, airy feeling of both your layout, and the precious photo. I also absolutely love all of the little circles, flowers, pearls, and string here and there on the page. Great job! TFS:)
