Week five was a big one in this house. Not because we did a lot but rather because we reached a milestone. One that is bitter sweet for me but, like or not it happened and we commence a new era. Do I need to tell you that this called for an insert? Probably not. So without any more drama here we go.
Oh, just a little on this week card. Red cardstock form Becky Higgins, Thickers from Amy Tangerine, The circle from Ormolu, Button from Finding Nana, ‘Awesome’ from Pebbles Seen and Noted, Speech bubble from Sarah (Documenting Chaos) and Jodie Allan York collaboration in the Polkadot Creative Mini Kit and the Washi from Typo. Yup like a mixed bag of lollies minus the calories. YUM!
This is the Left Hand Side of the weekly layout. Still using the Becky Higgins Seafoam Kit I singled out the black cards. I wondered when I first opened the kit what I would do with these but realised this week that actually they are probably the most versatile of the lot. You can accent/match them with just about any colour you like. This week I chose red. Oh you’re wondering about the big milestone? Well all 3 of my little babies are now at school. Mackenzie my youngest started this week. There were days I thought this day would never come and others I wished it never would. But here we are staring it in the face. 3 big school kids.
Right Hand Side right here. Pleased with the “week in review” card I made this week using a combination of the Seafoam kit and an idea I borrowed and adapted from Cathy Zielske’s week 6 layout (She is totally awesome).
Like the way I stitched these two photos together? …. NOT! I don’t sew. It’s digital of course. With a little drop shadow it almost looks real and I just like the way it adds a little something to this picture. Go on, click on it to see it a little bigger and you may get a better idea of what I mean.
So for the insert. Here is one side. I used the Becky Higgins Design H page protector. Can I be totally honest for a minute and tell you that this side of the insert took me a LONG time. Not because it was hard but because I bawled my eyes out putting it together. (I’m even welling up now writing about it) Like I said it was bitter sweet and I will now leave it at that.
This is the flip side of that insert. You may be thinking “these black and red cards she used in this insert look familiar” and you would be right. Leftovers from the Becky Higgins Wellington Childhood kit I used in my Mini Album.
And finally here are the two main pages together. I like how the black and red turned out. Never though the Seafoam was quite this versatile until now.
Thanks For Dropping In
