Good morning! Happy December 2nd … making pages and posting two days in a row? I call that a major win. Before I dash off to work at the fabric shop, I wanted to get yesterdays layout done and also add a few touches to my photo from the 1st.
The story of the 2nd is the story of the long drive home from seeing my Dad in Rochester…it’s almost 400 miles between my house and his and it’s an all. day. drive. no other way around it. The plus side is it’s turnpike/thruway with well-spaced rest stops, straight shot and I have Apple CarPlay ! I was also super-lucky with the weather … this time.
Sorry for the reflections, it’s barely dawn and photographing around the overhead light is a pain. You also get a tiny glimpse of my desk-that-was-clean-last-night-now-not-so-much… So one photo of the bridge over the Hudson River (that I have driven over a million times) a stamp from this year’s main kit, a jingle tag from an old sticker set (because I wrote on the photo and ran out of room so hello cover up) and a white enamel star. I’ve decided to use the white chipboard numbers from the main DD kit in each layout but try and change them up so I stamped “currently” from one of this years stamp sets using Ali’s crafters ink (hello new ink pads! they are so yummy, I highly recommend them, you can purchase the set here)
I glued this to a star transparency from way back and backed it with a piece of white cardstock. Wrote up a card from the main kit with another enamel star. I went black and white with this layout as the colors in the photo were really vivid and I wanted a more neutral day 2 to sit next to the day 1.
So here is Day 1 and 2 layouts together. I printed out my Day 1 6×8 (I put it on an 8.5×11 in photoshop then printed at home), added the “1” (which I tried to distress but that turned into a mess so now it’s solid black -hello fat sharpie-although in this photo, it looks green.) and added a gold star.
1 & 2 in the bag! More stories coming for today, working @ the shop, girls basketball game, party at the cousins’s house…so many stories to choose from!!
