Oh long, long week four you gave me such trouble. This was one of those weeks that just took me far longer than it should have and I’m still not loving it but as a friend of mine taught me “It’s not perfect, but it’s done”.
It was a big week for us here. A week celebrating Australia day and the weekend of major Queensland floods. No I wasn’t short on material by any stretch of the imagination but every now and then it’s a little more effort to get it done.
(Point to note, I changed the location where I took photos of my pages this week. Yeah, I think I’ll head back to my dark table for next week.) Anyway here goes….
Left Hand side above here. In the top right I included a few Instagrams this week using a little template I created and shared in an earlier post along with a video on how to use it. You can see it here. Straight away you will see that the words on the “Sad Day” card on this page are blocked out. I do try to keep it real in my album and sometimes it means documenting things that are perhaps not as happy or, that I don’t want to come back an haunt any of my kids or family later in life by being out here in the web-sphere. I am sure all understand.
The right side. I had a bit of fun with stamps this week using, among other Ali Edwards stamps I have, the January Technique Tuesday stamp by Ali. Upon some reflection and flipping through my albums it seems I use Ali Edwards stamps most weeks. Either the digital brushes or the actual clear stamps. It’s that delicious, loopy writing I just can’t get enough of.
I did say it was a big week right? Generally that means …. yep you guessed it, an insert.
Here is one side.
This is a Becky Higgins page protector G. As always my inserts are smaller than 12×12 and I really like this one. It has a nice balance and variety of portrait and landscape slots. I was actually put onto the G a long time ago by Tammy from The Scrapbookers Inner Circle who told me they are great for inserts and that I would love them. She was so right. I always say a little thank you to her in my head when I pull one of these out…. ok waffling …. sorry. Here is the other side of the insert.
This one is all about the floods and how we saw and experienced them here in our local area. Last but not Least below is a picture of the 2 page layout put together. It’s ok & it’s done.
Thanks For Dropping In
