Today I want to get you caught up on my layouts from the past few days. When I last posted, I had made it through day 21. So here is the page for day 22:
When my Dad saw this layout, he protested a bit at the last sentence. And then I pulled out my college graduation photos that he took.
I love those little Studio Calico wooden letters + alphabet.
For the next day, I created a layout with some older pictures of my eldest son (he'll be 12 in October). These are not the greatest pictures in the world, but I absolutely love the look on his face.
After I had attached the wood veneer accents onto the page, I decided to paint them. If you look closely, you'll see a bit of the paint ended up on the picture. I kinda look the look of my mistake, though, so I kept it.
For my next layout, I went way back to my college days. I wanted to use fun colors to help tell my story.
I love the little die-cut star vellum piece:
The one really fun thing about LOAD is that I've been bouncing around with photos...I've got pictures from 1977 up to more recent ones. The next layout features pictures of my boys from this past December:
I couldn't completely forget my border punch. :)
This next layout took forever to finish (no pun intended). My in-laws were in town, and it was hard finding time to complete my page.
I smartened up yesterday, and went with a super quick page:
Finally, here is today's page:
This is a horrible picture of me, but when I heard today's prompt (bed-time rituals), I knew I wanted to use it. In case you're wondering, this was not a staged photo...my roommate really took a picture of me napping. At least my bed was made. :)
These layouts bring my grand total to 28. Even my husband is now checking to see if I've got my daily layout finished. I think he's more proud of my pages than I am!
I'll be back next week with the last three layouts from this LOAD challenge. And then, if I'm totally honest, I'll probably take a bit of a break. We're making a few renovations to our home, and my craft room will be moving, so I'll be busy with that. I'll post about the new room (which I'm sharing with my boys) as soon as it's done.
