Hello and welcome to week 19 - 25 August 2013.
A pretty straight-forward week, really.
I used a fold-open journaling card to tell a longer story about the games Liam likes to play now, challenges he faces etc. :: Included a card from their Top Trump games they love so much now :: Last lemons from our tree :: And our cellphones. Not the latest or best, but all we really need. So sweet to get phonecalls from Reuben from school now. Usually when he doesn't come home straight, but stays at school for chess tournaments. "Awesome" card was a freebie, link here.
Over here I did some more cutting and pasting than usual: Cutting and combining two cards was an idea I picked up from Design Editor. The "Love it" circles is a stamp was picked up at a great new shop I discovered, called Typo :: Used Cathy Zielske's photo card freebie again. (Silly glasses for 3D purposes only, hehe) :: And I cut out the star from a PL card and added it to cardstock :: The Protea flowers is our national flower and one of my favourites. Always great to have it in the house :: Oh, and the messy boy's room was captured even before I read about Tracey Clark "coming out of the closet" with her clutter. Love her post Reality reframed. I love what she says about the damage that can be done by taking in too much perfection, blog after blog we read. Good perspective after the recent WITL excersize that left me wishing my home had more light, etc etc. :: Another highlight of this week was watching Philips Philips win American Idols (yes, we get it way later over here). He was our favourite from the beginning. His DVD "Gone, gone gone" has all the soul I'm hoping for my everyday photography to have. You can watch it on You-tube here.
I'll be linking up at The Mom Creative and also at Simple as That's Saturday share.
