In researching for this assignment, I came across so many great quotes, and as I listed them, I noticed that they all had an underlying message that could teach a life lesson to my kids.
Here's my layout:
Whew! That was quite the supplies list! There's a lot of detail on this layout - and while it took me longer than originally thought (story of my life!), I am really happy with how this turned out!
I created a grid, using 2.25” squares of patterned paper and leaving spaces for my journaling. I created library card pocket-styled sleeves and matching cards. The quotes are printed on the cards, with my handwritten journaling on the back of each.
Each pocket holds a quote from the movie, and my advice to my children, based on the quotes. And every square has a little bit of happy on it! :)
Quotes and Journaling (in numbered pockets) reads:
1) “Life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re gonna get.” Life will throw you some curves – take them in stride and do the best with what you have.
2) “Mama always said you’ve got to put the past behind you before you can move on.” Remember – to err is human; to forgive, divine. Forgive and move on…
3) “Mama always had a way of explaining things so I could understand them.” Be simple. Don’t overcomplicate things. Explain it to me like I’m a child, but listen to me like you’re an adult…
4) “If I’d a known that was the last time I was gonna talk to Bubba, I would have thought of something better to say.” It’s important to tell people how you feel. Life is too short to be wasted and it’s important to make each moment count. Live life like it’s your last day – enjoy it completely.
5) “Run, Forrest! Run!” Those you love (and who love you) will tell your strengths. Listen… and use them to your advantage.
6) “Stupid is as stupid does.” You’re smart enough to know right from wrong. Just remember that actions speak louder than words.
