This one was supposed to be a quick, 20-minute page because I was having such a busy week and was trying to get to bed earlier than normal since I had to be up early. Somehow it turned into a two-page layout and it also took 2.5 hours. Oops. I really like how it turned out, though. This is a terrible photo—it’s really much cuter in real life. I “scraplifted” Nichol Magouirk from Two Peas on this one. She is so talented. I always enjoy checking out her stuff.
Now, this one really was only about a 20-30 minute layout. Yay! I just had so much fun doing a Christmas page in orange. I need to fix a mistake on the journaling (I put ‘watch’ instead of ‘watched’) but other than that, it is ready to go in the album.
Today is the 28th, and I have four more days before the challenge is over. It was another good month—feels good to have more stories told, and I think this time around I did a better job of integrating the layout-a-day into my routine. Once the challenge is over, I will be getting to work on my photos/memories organization with projects throughout the summer, and then in July I start a new class taught by the same lady who sponsors the Layout-A-Day classes I’ve taken this month and in February. I won’t be doing a layout a day again until September, though. Then that will probably be the end of layout-a-day until at least February.
This will be a quiet Memorial Day weekend for us. We took two of the above-pictured girls to Knoxville yesterday to drop them off for their summer of classes. Their lovely grandparents have been gracious enough to allow them to stay at their home. Yay for lovely grandparents!! (And thank you so very much to the lovely grandparents, in case they read this!) As usual, tomorrow is a work day for me and so is Monday, so it’s more or less just a regular “day at the office,” I guess.
Hope wherever you are, you are having a peaceful or exciting weekend (whichever you were hoping for).
