It's week 26 and we're halfway! This is the last spread in my 1st album for the year. I'll start July in the 2nd album. It also means it is mid-winter in Jo'burg.
This week kicks off 3 weeks of School Holidays...
Celebrating sleeping in late. Spending the mornings in our Pajamas. Chilling. We got the fireplace going. Wonderful. Hubby and I had a morning Breakfast date. Bliss. (Twosons label added afterwards for blogging purposes, it doesn't appear in the actual album).
Our little liquart tree is bearing fruit, even though I planted it in the wrong spot. I was inspired by a recent PL post by Ali, to use pencil for journaling. For me it creates a lighter feel than pen on a busy page.
When you turn the insert over: Liam (in his Superhero cape) waiting for Reuben to return from Chess holiday program, and other bits of life. I got the idea for the tag cloud from Nisa Fiin's blog.
And on the last page I journaled about our rather social week-end in a silver pen. Caught Reuben playing computer games (they don't have computer games at home except for chess, so they enjoy playing it at Spur). I made the "In the news" card since I couldn't find anything in my Freebie collection. Documenting Madiba (ex president Nelson Mandela) being very ill in hospital, and, unrelated I think, US President Obama being in the country for a visit. Got the great picture online at Rapport Newspaper. We also went to see Monster's University this week-end. I cut the image from a Cereal box.
Here's a somewhat clearer image of the journaling card.
And that's the insert-turned spread. The Facebook card is a freebie. I copied and pasted a Facebook anouncement (by Kids National Geographic) that Reuben won a bookprize in their Birthday competition.
And the last page. I have previously blogged about it as I was originally going to divide the year into 3 albums, but then realized I can go for two albums instead.
I'm using the Cobalt kit this year & I'm linking up at The Mom Creative every Tuesday.
Thanks to everyone popping in & a big thanks for leaving a comment!
