Get Inspired with Get Picky!

This month's inspiration challenge over at Get Picky is's All About Words!
The idea is to focus on the story, the words, the journaling,
and I just love the image to go along with it:

Love the idea of letting your imagination "take flight" while reading, so for my layout I focused on telling the "story" of how, in the past couple years, I've made more time again for reading in my daily life:

I knew I had to use the Studio Calico Ex Libris paper for this, so I cut out two of the images, then used the 2-space negative left over to house my journaling (seems to have a very cool Jill Sprott vibe, both the journaling AND the idea of words...loved her recent Miss Art's journaling class!!!).

I tucked a tag behind the journaling, to document some of my recent reads. 
The two smaller book-stack photos also do a great job of showcasing what types of books I've read in the past year:

To join in on the fun of capturing a story on a layout of your own, check out the details and other DT examples HERE.
