MMDT #9 - Forget Me Not



For this layout, I really had to think about what I wanted others to remember about me.   I decided on what was important to me, and went from there.  Though the journaling on the 2nd page pretty much explains it all, I'll elaborate a bit!

I had friends take pictures of me at my two jobs, and I used Andrea’s tip about using a sticker or other embellishment to cover up something you can’t crop out of the photo.  


 The flower (from Hot Off The Press) covers up a co-worker’s arm!

I took the photo of my hubby (Joe) and had him take one of the rest of us at a recent play…the women in that photo are all important in my life at this time.  One is my mom, one is Joe’s mom, one is my mom’s best friend and my second mom, Rosie, and the other two are Joe’s aunt and cousin, Aunt Lenore and Kathleen, who I try to spend as much time as possible with!  I am so blessed to have had them come into my life along with my honey!

I knew I wanted a cemetery photo for my 1 inch strip across the layout…I know that sounds weird, but I like cemeteries!!  Joe and I went out to Fort Snelling (very close to our house), and I took several photos of the rows and rows of headstones.  The one inch strip came out just how I had envisioned!

The Mosaic Moments Defining Tiles were perfect for the 2 inch squares (available as a free download at,and I added 2 cuts from the Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge.


The flowered paper is from DCWV Summer Stack, and the blue flowers on the journaling box are hand stitched.  I got to use my Sew Easy tools! The layout is #58, with the second page being the mirror image. 


Here is a close up of the journaling.

You really put a lot of thought into this challenge. I really like the dictionary words and the one inch cemetery photo. I love the quotes you chose. The two-page layout is a great reflection on your story line.

Love the quote by Gretzky though I am sure he was referring to hockey, perfect quote for us photo junkies too! Your pages are lovely. The mirror image of the page pattern is clever way to covey the concept of "reflection" on your life. Love the use of Mosaic Moments Free downloads - really fits into your idea.

The Gretzky quote is so very true and it echos well your Dream, Dare, Discover, and Believe definitions you have used to build your Forget-me-not page. So great to introduce us to the people you surround yourself with that have "made you" the person you are, you honor them well. I love the steeple and flag photo and how great it looks in the page pattern. You have matched the lower 1"squares perfectly! Great Job Lori!

Great pages Lori!! I Love your cemetery photo. Very cool! Your journaling is very impressive. I need to start journaling more and could take some pointers from you. I'm glad you have had the opportunity to work hard and make your dreams come true!
