scrapbooking

>A day in pictures

>Tonight I picked up my photos from the 25th and decided to do the layout right away instead of letting things stew and gather dust. I’m not 100% happy with the result but it’ll do. Besides, it’s only the first time I was doing this and I have 11 other months to make up for it! Out of the 30-odd pictures I took, I used 14 and followed the album prompt almost to the letter.


What I liked about this project:
-having the paper already picked and glued down makes things so much easier;
-having to take certain pictures and use those in the layout also makes things easier;
-using a lot of pictures and cropping them in different sizes was interesting;
-as was layering some of the pictures.

This project definitely forced me to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to scrapbooking. Before this, I had mostly worked in 12″x12″ or 8″x8″ (with the exeption of one or two projects for other people) so working in 6″x12″ for myself was definitely different. A fun project which kept my hands busy long enough to stop thinking about food.

(And I just spent the last 15 minutes typing up a storm about food and weight and personal issues and with one click, deleted the whole thing because really, I don’t need to air my dirty laundry in public. And my blog is titled Good things and Good thoughts! So there.)

PS I changed my counter so I can now see where my visitors are from. Cool, huh?

  1. >Cool project. I really loved the pictures of the playground and for some reason the clock one. You did a wonderful job and by viewing the finished product one would never know you were out of your comfort zone.

  2. >Ah Mz. KoolAid, I admit to being one of those “lurkers” you posted about in previous post. But it’s only because I enjoy coming here and checking out your eye candy. 😉 xoxoxo
