(Posted a bit early!)

Your challenge is to create a layout containing a letter as part or all of the journaling. You can include photos or not. Ideas for inspiration: a letter to your children, a deceased relative, love letter to your hubby, or even a letter to yourself! (If you still need to create a 2010 Resolutions layout, you could incorporate that theme into your letter to yourself).

Here's one I made of a letter to Nathaniel telling him how we arrived at his birthname:

Oh, I love his name layout! I've done those for both of my girls too, and they're two of my favorites. Off to think up something to write about...

Okay, I'm not LOVING this one...but it's the title page for Rachael's P365 project, and it has the circle stitching for another bonus point.

Kat - wonderful love letter! I was attracted to DH because of his guitar playing too.

Kristin - you may not love it, but I do!! I think it's a perfect title page for that album!

Nicole - gorgeous page! I love the heavenly feel to it!

April - I think that layout is perfect in the form of a letter! Love your overall design, and the colors!

Okay, here is mine. The letter doesn't really ... blend very well with the layout, but I had a lot to write, so ... it is what it is!

omg these pages made me cry. I know it must have been hard for you ladies to write these letters but just know that you did a wonderful job in showing your online friends such personal feelings that came directly from your heart. Beautiful pages ladies.
