Everyday Display

I have finally got myself an Everyday Display instead of just borrowing Mum's and having fun putting it together for her! I wanted to make up a layout to have on display for the Open Day at the Bay Lounge on Saturday, so I've used some photos of Victoria's graduation with the new "Wishful" border kit. I love the starry theme, and I think it goes really well with Graduation photos. I need to add a title or some journalling, but other than that, it's finished. One of the reasons I really like the Everyday Display is that none of this is stuck down - the magnets are holding it all together... so everything is reusable in my albums!

Emma's First Year

I have created a page a bit like this one for Matthew's first year, and I have been looking forward to doing one for Emma. When I made Matthew's page I used the small circular templates for the photos, but this time round the Jumbo Circle Template is out and I wanted to use it to make one large mat. It was actually a bit of a fiddly design, but I do like the overall effect. It is rather "busy", and I would love to use the same idea again sometime with fewer photos. If I was only trying to fit in 6 instead of twelve for example, I could leave little gaps between each section of the pizza.

First Cinema Visit

I loved completing this page. Matthew and his best friend and worst enemy Alfie had a trip to the cinema in July to see Toy Story 3. They both loved it, and so did the mums. What a great movie!

The Toy Story Additions were perfect for creating this page, since they continued the Toy Story theme so beautifully. I used the brand new Embossed Star Maker for the embellishments.
