First off, I have the hardest darn time getting a good picture of a 2-page layout. :-l I get quite frustrated. Any tips? I don't have a fancy program that could stitch two individual photos together. All I can do is crop and mess with the colors a tiny teen bit.
Anyhow, this is my layout for August for the Project 12.I love the fun and bright colors in these papers and on this layout. The sketch had 3 photo spots, but I just couldn't narrow it down to three, so I did 7!
I hand stitched the butterflies paths and also did some machine stitching. I added a few staples around the title just for fun! I barely fit all the journaling from the month in! I doodled around the edge to make it stand out a tad bit more.
I did a bit of doodling too.
Just a few close ups...
As or the journaling, these are some hi-lights as I'm sure its pretty hard to read from the picture. he month was kicked off with my mom treating the kids to an afternoon at Sun Mountain Fun Center. We spent the first weekend in Madras at the DuPont family reunion camp out. I spent the next week getting ready for my garage sale. Al, Linda, Harvey, Janet, Richard, Brenda, Chris, Peyton and Maddy went fishing at Walton Lake while I had my garage sale. The following Monday Harvey and Janet took Maddy and I up to OHSU for Maddy's follow up doctor appointment. That Friday, Milton, Heidi, Chris and I took off for the Willamette Country Music Festival in Brownsville, trailer in tow. I had 2 days at home to unpack, clean and repack before heading to my moms for yet another garage sale. The sale was Friday and Saturday. Saturday afternoon my mom and I went to a beautiful outdoor wedding. Sunday we celebrated my Step Grandma's 90th birthday! We spent quite a bit of time at my parents house this month. We were able to pull out the pool and slide for the kids quite a bit, which they absolutely loved! Peyton also got to go down to the garden with Grandpa John to dig potatoes a couple times. He LOVES helping out in the garden. There have been a handful of lightning storms causing fires all over the place. This caused smoke filled horizons. The last weekend kicked off bow season for Chris.
If you made it through all of that...kudos to you! :-)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
