Well, I have been crafting my “learn something new every day” album lately, but I have been lackadaisical about posting pictures of what I created. I have learned one HUGE thing since beginning this project, and that is…….I adore hybrid (digital and traditional) scrapbooking. My last 6-7 pages have been created using a 4×6 print that I have digi-scrapped, and then added to my album and embellished with the good stuff. :)A few days ago, I finally received the tiny Pixie sewing machine that I bought, and that has really added to my pages, too. I just need to become more adept at changing the bobbins, because right now that scares me. I know….silly.
So, here is my gallery of a few of the pages I created. I have several more to come soon, as I have finished the digi side of things, but not the paper scissors creating. Happy Wednesday everyone! 🙂
September 1st was a hard day, so I needed two pages to fully encapsulate what I learned. On the left hand page, I added a card, with the details stowed deep inside (the card AND envelope),to keep private thoughts a little more private. On the right, is my thought for the day.
This picture is really bad, I was dealing with some el yucko light. This is from the day Spooky returned home, so it was really special. I used the tea bag (to add the date) from the “nighty night” tea that Brynne drank, when she came home from school “sick.” I think she mostly wanted some time with her mom, some soothing tea, and a few hours escaping her first few weeks of middle school.
I really, really need to learn how to photograph my work so that the quality is better. But, I LOVE this page about how family isn’t created with blood ties alone, but it about love and trust. This is my sweet niece, with her dear friend.
