Linking up to The Mom Creative who hosts a weekly link party for all us PLers to display our pages and get inspiration and encouragement from the PL community. If you're visiting my blog from there - thanks, it's lovely to see you; and if you haven't been there yet, do take the opportunity to hop on over.
Is it just me or are these weeks flying on by? Good thing we have our PL pages to help remember all the moments and memories.
Unusually for me, I wrapped two pages this week. And neither of them were Design A. Way to break out of my PL routine! The two page layout was needed as there have been a few special occasions this week, which I'll explain as I do my normal show and tell!
First up, here's the overview of the two page spread:
And here's the first page in close up:
In the top left we have a little photo collage I made about the busy week I had card-making. Been lots of commissioned cards to create, so I thought I would include some photos of some of my cards.
Next up is a card with a couple of photos of some lovely pink roses I received, as a surprise. Don't you just love surprises, especially when they're pink?!
At the top right is a photo of One Tree Hill DVD box sets I've just added to my collection. I'm a OTH-aholic (teen dramas are totally my weak spot), and as we watch the final season, I'm preparing for the end by collecting the DVDs, so I can always get my OTH fix.
Under that, in recognition of St Patrick's Day on Saturday, I added some journal cards with some quotes about luck.
Moving onto the second page, which was my first time filling up a Design E page:
Another special occasion this week was Chloe getting her school report in. She scored 'excellent' across the board - you can't beat perfection. I am so proud of Miss C!
St Patrick's Day wasn't the only celebration this week; the UK also celebrated Mother's Day on Sunday. Chloe made me the most adorable card, so I wanted to include this:
The bottom two pockets are filled firstly with a story about me and my contemplation of Warhol's 15 minutes of fame theory:
Secondly, that when Chloe does something that surprises me, I tell her that she is strange and unusual child. I tell her this so often she finishes the sentence for me. She knows that it is a compliment; I love how unique she is, and I hope she never loses this individuality.
And that, readers, is the week that was. Phew. More to come next week....
