Having shown my two little polaroids in the last post, I decided to use my day off wisely and get to grips with a layout inspired by the Telling Tales class over at Kirsty's blog.
I was able to spread my
mess crafty bits around as the dog is in the Mucky Pups grooming van. She absolutely loves them grooming her. When we try to do it ourselves it's a totally different matter! I don't know what their secret is, what happens in the van - stays in the van!
Anyhow, I wanted to document how my husband has really got back into his photography recently. There's a long story of how II really liked the way this came together, one journaling card, one polaroid and a photo and the page was halfway there. I even dared to stamp the bird and the foot prints straight onto the card right at the end of the layout, which is normally a recipe for disaster (and smudgy ink marks on a piece of cardstock)
made him suggested that he join a camera club that an ex work colleague runs. I went for coffee with her one morning and ended up promising that my husband would attend their next meeting. She really wanted me to join but I delegated! But after having said 'I'll go to ONE meeting, but only because you promised her' he now looks forward to their fortnightly get togethers. So I knew which photo I would be using as I wanted one showing him using his new DSLR. But then, wouldn't you know it, the colours didn't look right with the polaroid tabs I had made. So I made another one in appropriate, more manly colours.
PS re Facebook. Yesterday I had a phone call from a friend. 'Are you OK?' she asked. 'only your profile has disappeared off FB.' Which was weird as up to then I know it was still there because my daughter was checking it for me just to see if I had been closed down. So I guessed that it really was the end of an era and time to reinvent myself. Due to their identity rules you have to be who you say you are so I reverted back to Debbie instead of Deb. Opened up a whole new email account just to link to FB and set everything up. Went through the process of sending a gazillion friend requests. Then guess what, this morning I woke up to an email saying ' sorry, we closed your account by mistake, you can get back into it now.' Technology eh?! So if anyone befriended me as Debbie and isn't a friend of Deb, please let me know, it's good to keep in touch!
