I've had a bit of a tricky mojo recently. Its been there, just not working as I would like it. I'm completing projects but they are leaving me feeling a little disappointed. This week also, I've had a nasty stomach bug and I'm still not over it, and I'm part way through a blog post about our horrific camping adventures this weekend. In an effort to turn things a bit positive, I looked through my spreadsheet of layouts (oh yes, you did read that right) which I have to keep now to help me track deadlines, publishing deadlines and when I have blogged projects etc. I found this layout that I hadn't shared yet and it reminded me that sometimes I can make things that I really love. I used a sketch that I found on Pinterest and it came together really well with the Salt Air papers from Cosmo Cricket. The colours were perfect with the photos of Louis and his Grandma (my MIL) who are inseperable when we get to see her, often to the exclusions of everyone else.
I don't often use printed journalling but in this case there wasn't much to say (the photos are from our Wales album) and so it worked well to have it in short phrases on the strips. I also used a Cricut for the first time ever for my title. I was at an Artful Angels crop and they have one there with various cartridges for you to use which is really handy if you don't have one of your own.
I liked being able to match the colour to my layout exactly so I would definitely use it again even though it is quite fiddly.
So there you are. A sunny layout for a day that is not sure if it is sunny or raining stair rods! Now, I must go and load the washing machine again. Oh yes, it was THAT sort of camping trip. More on that very soon.
Bye for now
