What a week...
... Poor Tom had a wrangle with the electric bench saw. His right thumb
came off rather poorly. He cut it lengthways. Basically stuck his thumb into the blade.
Couldn't extract it before he turned the machine off. Lost 1/2 his nail, had a pile of
stitches and some of his flesh is so mashed up they have just had to leave it.
NOT nice. So he's in a lot of pain. And had a lot of pain relief,
in this picture, heehee!
So am I [in pain, that is].
Because he cooks. ALL our meals. Including my brekky in bed.
Oh dear! I've actually had to rediscover the kitchen.
Our own home grown tomatoes. Cooked by me. It deffo was a 'DIY' moment;)
ANYWAYS. The scrapping continues.
Today I finished off an A4 page with a photo I took out front of our
house. It's a little OTT - but I like it!
I do these types of LOs so I can hang up in our house. It's nice to
look at a vase of flowers, or the clutter of outdoor furniture under our
tree..... sort of homely!
Some more stenciling & I'm rather fond of that sparkling washi tape!
Layered the 'documented' sticker onto the tab. Lots of older bits of
odd papers under the photo...
Even got out the date stamp! A few sequins & wood hearts scattered...
As well as LOs I've finished my Melbourne trip 'diary'.
[Used a Myer's catalogue as bg paper - since this is where we spent so
much time... & money!!!!]
Traveller's notebooks and planners and junk journals seem to be really popular atm.
Last year I found an old photo album, with those fine tissue paper bits between the
pages in the Op Shop, so I've 'upcycled' it to record my annual visits to my BFF.
I guess it's really a visual record with journaling. Anyways, it works for me!
It's quite a thick book, consequently, the edges close to the spine fold back
a LOT, so you can't really stick things close to the centre of the pages.
Fine for journaling, though...
And I've cut my photos to fit. I haven't used all my photos. Just enough
to give a 'feel' to our time away together:)
And of course, because of the thickness of the book even BEFORE I stick stuff
in, it has to be mostly flat.... do you like our brekky?
Haha!!! Had fun with that gold acrylic word.
Stapled on, of course! I've used a little washi tape as decoration around my pages
then I decided it was time to do some Happy Mail. This one is going OS:
It's made with 4 envelopes, joined together then decorated with pp I had in my stash.
Below is the flip all folded open.....
...and the other side:
I think this is my fave page. I created the centre card using my FMS 'Little Moments'
app on my IPhone:
So, that's it for me!
Hope it's cooler at yours than it has been here.
Think 34C at 3am this morning! Luckily, it cooled down this afternoon.
A bit of a breather before the next heat wave hits, I'm thinking.....
Take care now ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
