Your Vote Counts | A Scrapbook Layout

Suddenly, this week has turned super hectic. I have an interview today and submitted my resume for a few other opportunities that would be fabulous. Good things are happening and I hope the trend continues!

Just a super quick post today to commemorate the election this week.

I usually create election layouts every four years. It’s important to me. My Great Grandmother was a suffragette and marched near Rochester New York about 100 years ago to win the right to vote for women. I always think of her when I cast my ballot. She fought for me and I will never take my vote for granted.

Other: graph paper unknown, Silhouette flourish shape, Bazzill playing card, Heidi Swapp journaling spot. Layout design inspired by this layout from Lisa Dickinson.

I will create a companion page to go in my album that will document who I voted for, additional photos, a page about my volunteer experiences and how I really felt about this election. I think historic events like this are definitely scrap-worthy!

Thanks for stopping by today!

  11. Fantastic layout – we’re on the same wavelength. I happened to have my camera with me when I was voting early and decided to snap a picture of the ballot. Even though I rarely do this, I took a picture of the TV when we were watching the speeches on Tuesday night – I know I’m going to make a layout out of those!

    I hope you didn’t have to wait in line long!

  12. I have always thought of the ladies who worked and fought for us to vote but now that I know your grandmother was one of them that makes it even more special. I never give up a chance to vote for the big elections. I admit I did miss a small town election when we moved but I would not have known who I was voting for and that just didn’t seem right.

    I also like that you took a photo of the ballot. I thought I was the only one 🙂
    Do you feel like you have to hide it from the voter people? I do I always go in the far corner away from everyone so I can get the photo with out any problems!!

  16. Great layout documenting voting. Robbie took a cool picture when he was standing in line to vote (I voted early, so no line!) that I might use on a layout about voting, but I haven’t ever felt compelled to scrap much political stuff.
