Here we are at week twenty already. Continuing with my Becky Higgins Seafom Kit this week is brought to you by the colour Red (I think it’s like a really dark orange) and the number 4o. Ouch! – More on that later.
This here is the left side of the weeks layout. I must say something about the story here specifically about the centre left photo of my daughters hand. This was a big week for her as it was the first time she has done any NAPLAN testing. (This is the Australian National Assessment Program – Literacy & Numeracy and is compulsory for all year 3, 5, 7 & 9 students in this country) The tests go over 3 days and although she had not said too much to me about it my heart broke when I went into her room on late Tuesday night to turn off her night lamp and she had written this note on the palm of her hand “Do not worry about NAPLAN“. It was the first time I had seen her really “worried” about something at school. I am pleased to report that by the end of the week she was confident that she had done well and said to me “it was easy mum”.
Furthermore this was the week before I turned the big 40. This fact has weighed on my mind heavily for weeks and now looking back I’m glad it’s over. I won’t bore you wit my thoughts on it just that I wasn’t too keen on hitting that milestone. This little grey cloud is a metaphor for how I felt about it all.
Here is the Right side which includes a flip card once more.
Another simple wood veneer embellished filler card. Nothing more than a Seafoam filler card, a little mist and a Studio Calico Wood Veneer stuck on top. Done in a matter of seconds.
This is the little flip card. I seem to be using these a fair bit lately because there is so much going on and I always need to squeeze a couple of extra photos. I often get asked about what these are called. They are “Memory Book Flip Pockets” and come in packs of 6 in standard 6×4 format. In this flip pocket I ripped a 6×4 journal card to stick to the photo and I used the WRMK Tab punch to punch out a cork tab which I rather like the look of. It is protected by the plastic stick on tab covers they come with.
Inside this flip out I used a little of the digital “Becky Higgins Seasons Mini Kit” cause it just had that right icey feel to it. Here you get to see the tab a little better too.
Finally, here is what the week looks like all laid out in my album.
Hope you have enjoyed it and I am pleased to say the grey cloud hanging over me has shifted. Phew.
Thanks For Dropping In
