Isn’t it nifty ?… Finally it’s week fifty!
A belated Happy New Year to you friends. It’s been a long time between
drinks Project Life Blogs.
Since my last PL blog we have covered some 5600km in the car, celebrated Christmas, seen million year old dinosaur footprints, seen in the new year and generally cultivated … a LOT.
Now I am back on board and ready to really catch 2012 up as I am itching to start on my 2013 Project Life Album.
So let’s go.
This is the left side. Pretty straight forward really. The little journal cards are my simple little digital creation however, I did use the Becky Higgins grid card template. It’s a freebie and can be found here. Really handy.
I admit it was a total fluke that I captured the picture of insta snow falling onto Calvin in the top left of the layout. It almost looks real against the black and white gravel.
I also love the picture of Mackenzie sitting at our kitchen counter. The afternoon sun just hitting the back of her neck. The fact that it’s ‘nit goop’ in her hair just takes all the romance out of it but, you know, REAL life.
Oh you’re wondering about the Papadum? Well yes… as I insist on the photo a day and on including at least one photo form each day sometimes this sort of thing happens. It’s late, dinner is about to hit the table, my head desperately needs to hit the pillow and is all out of ideas. Luckily it’s not a permanent condition. The curry was tasty thank you.
This is the Right side. It was a really big week for Mackenzie finishing up kindy and all. Where on earth has that time gone? So yes a lot of this page is dedicated to her. I am not doing separate childhood albums so more of one child where needed I say. I added an insert this week. (expect to see a few of these for the next couple of weeks as there is a LOT going on) I just couldn’t resist adding a large shot of April and I under this stunning old tree.
As my Inserts are seldom 12×12 I took a DESIGN B from the Becky Higgins range and sliced the bottom row of 4×3’s off. I printed all three of the bottom images on the Becky Higgins Textured Card Stock. This colour is from the Clementine Edition. I must say I am really pleased at how the photo of the flat tyre printed onto the card.
The other side of the insert continues with the tree. Yep we spent some time there. As I didn’t want to write too much more I just made a couple of filler cards by using the Cobalt 12×12 paper and a few quick embellies.
Finally this is a picture of the full spread (excluding the insert).
Two more weeks to finish 2012! I’m getting excited.
Thanks For Dropping In
