This was a new story starter about caregiving. I wrote about a challenge: my boys leaving scraps everywhere. I took a not-stellar photo then scrapped and journaled over it to tell the story.
A moment of situational irony: as I took my tool kit off the bookshelf, the one that holds my wood veneer shapes that I wanted to use on the page, I found another one of these dang cough drop wrappers squirreled away.
I picked this paper because of the word "modifications," which appears many times on the paper. Picking up their scraps is a modification I would like the boys to make!
Next is a page that may be one of my favorites from the summer:
Used two single-page sketches and put them together on this two-page layout about a recent beach trip that ended up with my son stealing food from the thieving gulls and shouting "Mine!"
I love this movie. So many quotes...
I keep some Iris bins with themed products--Christmas, Halloween, School, Camping, and Vacation. I dug exclusively into my vacation bin for this layout. It prolonged summer for me, which made me happy. I used mainly old Little Yellow Bicycle, October Afternoon, and Fancy Pants for the page.
Yes, the gulls really did that.
I layered wallet-sized photos on top of 3x4 Project Life-ish cards. I LOVE this. It was so easy to create a coloful, eclectic background, and I am going to do it again.
That little wave there was a scrap from another project. I usually kick myself for saving teeny scraps like this, but I'm happy it paid off this time.
