I've been incredibly slack with layouts this past week or so. Life has been busy. Work got crazy as it always does when you're gearing up to take a couple weeks off (how is it clients seem to know that NOW would be a perfect time to go ahead with that big project seeing as how you wont be around for 2 weeks?!). And then we had the painters in causing chaos with the house again.
But painters have gone. Our house walls/doors are all painted a gorgeous white that makes me smile all the time. Managed to get work under control and now I have 2 weeks holiday! WOHOOOOO! So excited. We pack up tonight and head off for a few days up to Moama. Not much there except NO WORK, which is the most exciting thing ever. Lots of reading by the pool while Zack jumps around like a mad man. Can't wait :)
Finally sat down today and put a layout together; mainly because I was feeling so guilty for not having done anything in the new office. We've gone and made this amazing room (that I love!) and I haven't been using it. Ha. So today I did and this is what I came up with:
Grids are my go-to when I'm stuck. They are timeless, and so easy to work with. My real challenge for this one though was to use the fruit transparency shapes from SC's Far Far Away SB kit. Fruit on a layout, well fruit shapes in general, are not really my thing. They're kinda cute, but on a layout? Kinda weird but I did it anyway. And, shock horror, I actually like it.
The photo's are actually quite recent, as in, taken yesterday morning. Zack always likes to come in and wake me up, then we goof around and tell silly jokes or stories. Usually there are tickle fights and sometimes we take silly selfies. I've got journaling on the back (just printed it onto a 6x4 PL card and stuck it on the back).
Well we're off for a week of relaxing before Zack starts the new school year (I've taken his first week off as well so I can do the dropoff/pickup thing). He's super excited for the "family how-widay" as he calls it.
I hope your week is fantastic one!
