Once I have decided to sit down and do it, it always comes together really quickly but I suppose am the ultimate procrastinator.
Anyway, we had to find 4 "fun" photos and 4 patterned papers so that 4 mini 6x6 layouts were made and then put together to make the whole. I am pleased with the end result but I am not sure if I would want to make the effort of making the four mini layout when one sheet of 12x12 is such a nice large canvas. However, its a really good way of using multiple papers and several photos so I guess it is an idea to add to the arsenal.
Of course, green just jumped out at me (like it does right now) but it was nice to bring in some more bluey greens to coordinate and I am really happy with the way the colours came together. Even the fact that the orange focused photo jumps out at you doesn't bother me, I like the flash of bright!
I then made more of an effort than before to decorate the calendar page and thought that the result of using all the same papers was really pretty. All in all, satisfied!

And with no more ado, here are the last items:
Here are the small embellishments I made ready to adhere to anything the colours match to:And this is what I am left with!

Not a brilliant photo but the light is so peculiar right now - too bright or too dark - bit tricky.
Anyway, that was the last two full sheets of paper - one as the back ground and one for the circle and partial circle so the rest of the scraps etc can be made into tags or a card maybe and then the other bits and pieces will go into my scraps and embellishment box. So a total of 5 pages and a complete mini book with nothing but some basic chipboard added into the mix. It was fun to stretch myself like that and now feel up to tackling the other pizza boxes I have lying around!

The magnet board was a lot more fun than I thought it would be to make and I am delighted with the results! I made it for my Isabella's christening present and as it was too big to fit into my suitcase to take back to the UK with me, I had to print off a photo of it for Lib and she will collect it when she is here later in the month! I put the magnets into the small heart shaped gift box I had made as a clue (which neither Jon nor Lib got!) and took that with me but I still have the magnet board here waiting to be collected. It is so lovely and the paper is so gorgeous (BasicGrey of course - Lilykate range) that I think Lib will have to prise it out of my hands. (only joking!)
I really think I will need to get another one to make up for myself - maybe to put in my workroom - in shades of pink.... will have to mull that one over. In the meantime....
I still haven't done anything for July photo of the day.... maybe tomorrow ...
