This is for my BOM (book of me) and the challenge (from Challenge Masters) was to scrap about MEDIA. (I feel obligated to put something in ( )s here since I seem to have that theme going this post)...
I would be concerned that this layout ages me (who like newspapers anymore?) but I have already confessed that I am old, gray and senile so whats to lose by sharing my passion for more Paper and Ink?
Is that why I like my newspaper? - because it is paper and ink? Could be...
Here is the journaling for those of you who care to read it:
I just can’t help it.
I know Internet News is up to the minute and easy access, delivered right to my computer screen but I love my NEWSPAPER.
And my newspaper is the Dallas Morning News.I love doing my personal check of the weather as I go outside first thing in the morning to pick it up off the front sidewalk.
I love the smoothness of the paper that no one else has crinkled.
I love folding the page “just so” to work my Sudoku puzzle.
I love sharing the paper and the kitchen table with Randy on the weekends.
I love that my friend Liz asks “Are services are over at the Church of the DMN?” when she calls on Sunday. She knows I’ve been reading the Dallas Morning News.
I love having the crucial supply if someone has a paper-mache project or needs to wrap dishes to move or needs a current event for a school assignment.
I love being able to “save” a record of what was happening on the day my children were born (or when a world changing event occurs.)
I know that newspapers are a dying breed but I sure hope they hang on for a few more decades. Life will not be the same without my newspaper.
Note: The print on my title lettering is from the first printing of my journaling (I didn't like the shape I chose) So this layout has "recycled" paper on it. Another great thing about newspapers... recyclable!
And here is some punch news:
