lm back to show you what l've been up to all of last week, scrapping of course.
Back in late december David and l went on a holiday to Tasmania with my sister and her hubby and their son, we took oh sooooooooo many photos (about 700) and when l started to scrap them l soon realised that l had so many , there was just no way l was going to get it down, so then l decided, l had to go about it differently.
lm a big fan of the way Becky Higgins and Ali Edwards have been doing their scrap layouts lately and invested in new page pockets that are divided into different sized pockets on each page, l brought the multi pack, which has some 6x 6x4 - others that have 4x 6x4 and then a large pocket for larger photos or journaling, These page pockets are from We R Memory Keepers and l just love them, so l was able to get my whole album done in one week -YAY- and now intend on mixing them up with my 12x12, so then l can use more photos , l still embellished some pockets and made up some journal tags , its still similar to 12x12 but not as fussy, so here are a few pics, sorry if they are a bit blurry.
Some thing else l wanted to share with you is my new challenge this week, l joined Ali Edwards and her once yearly project called WEEK IN A LIFE, and what it entails is taking photos and documenting your life for a week, its about all the little everyday things in life, things that might not seem real important but are lifes moments, then next year you will be able to look back and see whats changed, whats different to what you were doing 12 months ago, cant wait to scrap it all after the week is done, So l am doing it a little different , l normally scrap in 12x12, but lm going for 8.5 x 11 this time, l had a American Crafts chipboard Album in these size (l think thats what they call it ) but anyway its paintable, so l added paint and a strip of paper and added a very simple butterfly stamp and my cover is done , heres a look.
