I am home from my trip. In week 5 Ali Edwards shared “mathematics” as a tool to tell our story. Hello Story is her class with Big Picture classes giving story structure principles to assist in our scrap booking stories. It’s been an awesome class. I was not able to do week 5 layouts, but today I did week 6. The story structure is to have a 6 word story. It’s been fun to define story’s using just 6 words. Some of her examples also had some journaling in addition to supplement the 6 words. I cheated in that an ampersand might be another word. Here is the layout I just finished. Week 6: a 6 word story. The paper in this layout is from the Studio Calico kit Marks & Co.
The day before I left for my trip, I went to a 12 hour crop. I only stayed 8 hours, but I made a few layouts I thought I would share with you. The paper for these layouts were from the Studio Calico kit Planetarium.
At the end of the crop, I used a few scraps I had left to make this layout. When I got home, I dribbled some navy mist on it to finish it, but I do not have a photo of it finished.
I had a wonderful time at the crop, left early the next day to go to Seattle to a memorial for my father. It was a very sweet time and a very good trip. I am recovering as travel exhausts me, but I felt so glad to be able to go. My daughter and I with her friend, spent 4 days getting her home ready for her dear baby daughter’s arrival. I get to go again mid September for our second grand child’s birth. SWEET DAYS AHEAD!
Much grace to you all as a new day arrives. LUBM Debbie
