A Note From Aly

These photos are of my grandmother holding my mom, my mom holding me, and me holding my baby. I printed the photos in the digital frames on photo paper and cut them out. I created the reverse type journaling circle in Photoshop using the “text on a path” technique, and printed it on cream cardstock. (You can google “text on a path” to find a tutorial.) The journaling is all the things that my grandmother, my mom, and I have in common—or things that create a connection between us.
