A Note from Jen
Every year my stepmom would repaint her wall white. Every year. One day I asked her why she always choose white. She replied that colored walls were too bold. From that day on, I created a life motto: life is too short for white walls. When beginning my layout design I always start with my photos, then I match my paper and accents to the colors in the photos (like I did on this page – the ribbon matches the colors in Shane’s shirt). If the photo doesn’t have any color (say, everyone is wearing white) then I create a color palette for the page because life’s too short to have white walls!
