Since I was short on time this morning, I grabbed my JBS mercantile kit. It made it very easy to create a layout in about an hour. It's a little hard to see, but I did stitch a square around the canvas before layering my embellishments on top.

Today's prompt was all about goals. Originally, I had intended to use this photo expressly for PL2013. Then, I had the wonderful idea to use it in a succession showing how my son's video game programming skills are developing. I decided that it would also be a perfect way for me to document my support for my son's dreams. This is one of the wonderful things about Layout a Day...it makes you see other story telling opportunities.
So what's the moral of the story today? Simply put, it's ok to scraplift a design you like again and again. It's also perfectly wonderful to use one photo several times on different projects. There is always more than one side to a story. As far as today's design, you can expect to see several more variations soon. I used it on a layout for Scrapbook News and Review magazine and on another for Get It Scrapped.
