I am playing catch up again. I was going through my albums just the other day and discovered that I have a few months left in my 2012 album left to finish. I have to say that it was so fun to go back a few years and re live some moments when my kids were smaller. This is sure a sweet life and I just loved using that ice cream card this week.
I got straight to work and created two pages for week 41 of 2012.
Here is what both pages look like.
Here is the first page.
I decided that I wanted to use a photo of my two kids on their bikes and enlarge it. I also wanted to use it to hold the week # and the dates.
I cropped it to 4x12 and printed it out as two separate 4x6 photos. I wanted to try and keep the illusion of the two pockets being one photo and so I added the small strip of patterned paper onto both photos.
I added some of the grey patterned paper behind the kraft circle die cut piece and used it on top of my journaling card.
My daughter was in Kindergarten at the time and they got to take home some fun things every once in a while. It was her night to take home the Skippy John Jones backpack. She was so excited to have Skippy home with her. He went everywhere with her that day.
I cut out the circle piece out of the 6x6 paper pack and added to the photo.
We had received this pumpkin from a friend that had a garden and it sat on our small front porch all month. It was sure a fun reminder that it was indeed fall even if the weather sure didn't feel like it.
I used the leftover black and white camera paper in the corner of this photo. I added a few embellishments as well.
For this one I had this photo of me sitting in my chair watching the kids ride their bikes. I simply stapled the photo and the journaling card together.
The "love" word was cut out from one of the journaling cards.
Here is the right side. I decided to switch it up a little and use a page protector that had 3x4 pockets and 4x4 pockets. It sure was fun to play with different sizes for a different look.
Katelyn was so into bow and arrows after Brave the movie came out. She went out and made one all by herself that week. I printed out my journaling onto vellum and added it onto the orange feather card and added the heart badge.
I added a small 3x4 photo with a journaling square for this one. The pink card was already 4x4 in size so that was perfect to print out my journaling and slip into the page.
I cut down this filler card to fit into the 3x4 pocket. It went perfectly with my photo of Katelyn and her collection she had found that day on one of our walks.
That is all I have for today. Have a great week everyone !
I'll be back next month with some pages using the new Love Life Daily Diary Kit. So go get yours today in the shop !!
