This is also my official first layout in my "Volume 2" for 2013!! Whoo hoo! Three years and going strong, keeping caught up! Label by Cathy Z!
I used an Amy Tan digital word art (delight) from her "Yes Please" line on my black and white photo of my daughter holding her new laptop. I also used Cathy Z's ribbon word too. There was a lot of white space that was bothering me...lol!
I also used Rebecca Coopers templates for an extra 8 x 8 insert. We had a 4th of July BBQ and I took a few pics that I wanted to include. I try to change it up with different templates so it keeps it interesting through out the year. I found (from YEARS ago) a label from Junkitz. I was so happy! I love when I find stuff in my stash from eons ago : ) So I slapped that baby right on my Thursday journal card!
I also have not been dating every one of my photo's, which is really a struggle for me, haha. I am finding that putting the date on just a few is ample enough to guide the eye through the week and clearly see which journal card goes with each picture...make sense?
It was an awesome week and as I write this, I am officially on vacation for the next week...yay! It is my son & my daughters birthday's this week. So we have so much planned. Well, not so much for my son who is going to be 19 and is in Hawaii for the next three weeks. He is celebrating with his ohana out there. So we will have a little party for him when he gets home. But my little Natalya will be 9 and we have a fun filled week planned ahead. So tune in next week for the details.
Here is the left, the right and the complete layout. Enjoy! I am linked up with Jessica at The Mom Creative Blog! Her Tuesday PL layouts are awesome and you can get so much inspiration from other crafty gals!
