I am planning on writing about writing (ha) tomorrow, but thought I'd post some recent layouts from the past week first:
This one is a little inspiration from Big Picture Scrapbooking's Big Idea Festival, day 1. A recap of my boys' imaginative summer. I've been drawn to bright colors lately, esp. on white.
Also a Big Picture inspiration, a challenge to scrap how we learned. I learn by doing, and that inspired me to remind myself that my son, who is autistic, has trouble processing oral directions, so I need to be sensitive to that as I help him learn.
Next is a layout for my son's album. When we were in Disneyworld, he was able to go to a Lego store with his allowance from the last year--he got a Star Wars spaceship, little green army dudes Legos, and a Lego game. Plus his dreams fulfilled. I love the center shot with his leg perched against the other. Thinking, thinking...
I'm moderately dissatisfied with this one--I wonder if it's cohesive? I love the sentiment and the title, though, as well as those old Sassafras papers. And I love this picture of us. You can do a lot of good self-portraits using the extend-a-arm technique.
This was for a sketch challenge at Studio Calico. When this event happened, I immediately thought of a page. Is that bad?
