The day is fast approaching when we have to load up the car and do the 150 mile trek up to Sheffield to take our son back to uni for his final year. It wasn't so bad when it was just a date in the diary, or 'this time next month' or even 'next Sunday'. Now it's this Sunday and it is coming round far too soon.
So for the next challenge over at May Flaum's class I decided to use some photos I took of him when he had first returned from uni for the summer, just before he left for his month in Europe. 'Why are you taking pictures of me looking at my laptop?' 'Can I not even play a guitar without you sneaking up with your camera?' He clearly did not understand my need to just document the fact that he was home! And those photos needed to be made into a layout.
The shaped, patterned card behind the photos was bought ages ago, and was so pretty I never found anything suitable to put on it. So as I am supposed to be using up things I wanted to use but never did, it was ideal to slice in half and follow May's page on telling a story through simple jounalling.
As I look at those photos I realise how much I love coming home to the sound of a guitar playing and how nice it is to put my head round his bedroom door and see him checking things out on his laptop. And how much I'm not going to like coming home to an empty, quiet house and open his bedroom door and see it looking just how it was when I left the house in the morning :-(
