I did this layout at the last Ludgershall crop. I dutifully photographed it with the intention of blogging about it but then life, as it does, got in the way. When I looked at it I noticed that 2 floating on it. At this point, it has been so long I have no idea what it meant! Was it TWO, as in the two kids? Did something come off, like the rest of a date? 2012 maybe? I have absolutely NO IDEA.
This is another one of those layouts I made from the debris in the bottom of my crop bag. I had the photo, and a vague idea of what I wanted to do with it, but hadn’t made a “kit” to go along with it. I just looked at the bits and bobs that were left from, I think, a card I made a few months back, and felt the colours went with the photo well enough.
I rather like the odd angled photo – I thought about putting the photo on point, so the kids were level, but in the end I preferred it this way. The horizon is pretty close to resting on the line, from corner to corner diagonally IRL although it doesn’t look exactly like that in the photo.
I am aware I still have my final BIG CARD to do, the Ace of Clubs, but to be honest, while I am feeling MUCH better, and able to sit at my desk for longer each day, I am not in the right head space to do that level of time-consuming crafting quite yet. I will do it, and photo the lot in suit groupings, and maybe review my favourite techniques, in the next week or so. For the moment it is all about UKS so bear with me. I went from being totally on top of things, with a clear plan for getting all the sponsorship info and HomePage projects/classes for 2013 sorted when I went into hospital, to being laid up with my back and my recovery from surgery and once again a manic end-of-year rush to get it all set up. It’s been more stressful than I hoped it would be but I’ve made huge progress in the last two days so I am optimistic it’ll be complete tomorrow – although I am still awaiting some of the class info, I think we have some nice things planned and will be sharing al that hopefully with the Monday Home Page next week. Fingers crossed….
