Big Idea Festival - Enjoy

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, the following revelation will probably not surprise you - I ALWAYS ENJOY A GOOD BOOK. So, it was easy for me to find something to scrap about when I learned that the Day 5 Big Idea Festival word was ENJOY. I used the 8x8 template that was provided with each day's word for my photos & title, printed it and used it to create a 12x12 layout that will go in our Activities We Enjoy album.
The Big Idea Festival ended Saturday and even though I didn't complete a page for each of the twelve words, I'm thrilled with the six pages I did complete. Anyone else participate in the class? Did you complete all 12 pages?

Great layout! I have some photos of me reading some books, with the thought I'd do a layout sometime. I've never gotten around to it. Must change that! I followed along with the Big Idea Festival but have not created anything - too busy right now!

Love the layout, the font for "enjoy", the button for the "o" but most of all that you have photos of you reading! Thanks so much for your prayers, they are very appreciated.
