I went totally scrap-ular on this one a it was the perfect color set to get some photos that have been milling about my desk for far too long, down on paper with the memories sprinkled in between them using Word and photos from our day fishing at the family ranch...
I am powerless to the enchantment of my two girls trailing after their daddy in the outdoors. I could snap pictures of their special relationship all day long! This particular day was a rare sunny JANUARY day just right for fishing...wait, huh!?? OK, even in California we don't expect 80 degree days or good fishing in January but lucky for us, we hit a golden day.
This is one of my favorite techniques when I have a story to tell and lots of pictures to share. Microsoft Word does the trick interspersing your photos throughout a bunch of journaling. If you haven't tried this before, play around with the "wrap" function when inserting photos into text. The results are very cool I think.
I used some pretty new swirls from Want2Scrap and took advantage of the space in between the bling to offload some long hoarded microbeads. I will be chasing these around the craft room for weeks now!
More bling and buttons and bits of goodies to finish off my page. FINALLY! These pictures can be put to bed and I feel great about that!
Check out the Just Us Girls design team for more color inspiration!
So glad you could stop by. Have a great one!
