It's the first Monday of the month and it's time for another 12 in 14 challenge by the Stromsvigt DT. This month's prompt is "minimalistic". Something that should suit me, right?

Here's what I made:

I had a hard time finding that last piece that made it feels finished, but when my husband suggested I'd add something yellow it all came together. Unfortunately there was a misfortunate stapler malfunctioning, but that's the only yellow star I had left so it is what it is. I had my son sign his name to the tag since he's the photographer. That's me reading the morning paper, while little sister watches the kiddie shows.

This is also my layout for the second assignment in Laura Kurz' "Pen and Paper" class. If you haven't joined this class already, go do it right now! (Yes, you still can.)Laura had me sobbing with just the introductory video. Yes, she is really that good!

Since the class is about writing I wanted to add a translation of my journaling for those of you that does not speak Swedish:

"Lately Dante has been borrowing my phone to take photographs. His pictures aren't always pretty and sometimes they are out of focus, but he photographs our everyday life. Mommy, daddy, sister, messy rooms and bath towels hung up to dry on a door. He's also taken a whole lot of crazy photos the entire family have laughed at really hard. So thank you, Dante, for helping me document our everyday life! I hope you will keep on doing so."
