September Layout

I veered away from my normal style this month and ended up doing two single pages, but I kept them similar as I want them facing each other in the album. The reason... while they are two separate days, they are connected. The feelings on each day were polar opposite, but important to document (the story of the first day is written behind the photo in the file folder, but the second day's story is self evident).

I kept them very simple, in both colour and layout, but did go to some effort in the embossing of the chipboard and the cardstock. I used Tim Holtz distress embossing powder in Broken China and Enamelware with some Whisper White thrown in for good measure. I used the same colours with a TCW stencil and Versamark ink. By now the powders were mixed together and so a lot softer. I edged each page with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The other embellishments were some Prima flowers and Kaisercraft pearls with some old rubons and date stamp.

Project Life - July 2013

Ooops I always seem to be running behind with posting my project life layouts and here we are suddenly in September and I am only just posting my July PL.

July was filled with LOTS of birthday parties and other fun stuff as school holidays were a big part of the month. I aim to post August in the near future.

Happy Father's Day

In Australia, it is Father's day and while my dad is no longer with us, I would like to wish all the dad's out there (especially my husband) a very Happy Father's Day. Sleep in, watch sport, hang out with your kids or do whatever makes the day special for you.
