Letterman List Inspiration from my Chicago Tribune
I saw this graphic in my Tribune in 2008 and took a picture to put in the scrapbooking inspiration file. A few weeks ago I came across it while browsing my photos and decided I needed a cut file. I had orginally hoped to use the idea in my planner with my 2008 goals, but it would be great for a "Letterman list" or a page with a child's pictures ages one to 10.
I want to use it to scrapbook some photos I have on my brothers and sisters...but I have issues with my first draft. It bothers me that the photos I have are not of my siblings at the same age, that they are not the same size, and that I do not know their ages in the pictures I do have. With 6 sisters and 4 brothers, I am lucky to have any photos! We broke up the lot when my Mom passed away, I am not sure how many portraits my Mom's budget allowed for with 11 children, and I am not sure my siblings know their ages in these photos! I like the idea of using the Basic Grey paper with the grid and journaling about my family though!
I thought about sharing this file, but there are so many objects in the file that would require you Hide Select Contour! If you think it worth your trouble, drop me a note or a comment with your email address and I will send it! One of these days I will learn inkscape and make a file in SCAL that is more managable! Oh, how I wish there was a inkscape guru; in Northern IL, who could hold a class for my scrapbooking guild!
