my BALANCE layout

So this week I got inspired by the word put out my the "one word" bloggers which is BALANCE. I enjoyed reflecting on that word and what it means to my life right at this moment, so here's the page I came up with.

I made a see saw (don't know if that's the right term) or otherwise called a teeter totter of how my life SHOULD be. Although I want it to be balanced it, can never be. But if you notice the family side has more weight than the scrapbook goals. I sometimes forget this but I'm glad I'm refocused now.
I painted the edges of my 11 x 8 1/2 page with white so I can write up my journaling which reads: Today I needed to be reminded of a new year's resolution I've made for myself in the beginning of this year. In my journal entry on Dec. 31 '06, I wrote "I want to have more balance in my life. I can get pretty concentrated with things at hand that I sometimes neglect everything else. This year I don't want to obsess too much with scrapbooking (although that will totally be hard), play more with my kids and spend some alone time with hubby." I need to view my see saw once in a while.

Have a great day,
