Besides all the Learn Something New Every Day, Me In My Moleskine, and Big Idea Festival pages that I've created during my month of Mother LOAD, what have I accomplished???
I have to admit that the card design came from my Close To My Heart consultant - I just assembled it!
I had fun with the "earth" theme!
The journaling reads:
Every little kid goes through phases and you were certainly no exception. At two years old you went through a period where you preferred to dress in black. Not goth, just black. It wasn't all you wore by any means, but given a choice, these were the outfits you liked best. They saw the washer frequently. Sarah - Summer 1992.
A trip to the bookstore for new books was always a fun activity. Meeting Arthur and getting your books signed was a bonus! Summer 1997.
At that time, Becca really liked the character "D.J." in the Arthur books, but as you can see from the photo, she wasn't at all shy about cozying up to Arthur! Believe it or not, signed Arthur books still reside on the bookshelf in the bedroom of two high school seniors!
So, during the month of September, participating in the Mother LOAD class at BPC, I completed:
4 Big Idea Festival layouts;
30+ pages for Learn Something New Every Day;
6 pages in my 'Me in My Moleskine' book;
2 Good Mail Day Envelopes;
5 12 x12 layouts - Chocolate Tasting, Hurricane Irene, The Black Phase, and Meeting Arthur;
1 One Little Word Album Cover and 1 internal journaling page (to be revealed tomorrow);
2 Monthly Goals layouts (to be revealed tomorrow); and
2 5x7 canvases (coming soon to a blog near you!).
I had approached the Mother LOAD class with the idea that I would catch up on a lot of 12x12 layout ideas that have been floating around in my head or on the back burner for quite some time. Of course, I got side-tracked with LSNED and other projects that were calling for more immediate attention - which seems to be par for the course with me. Still - not too shabby for one month effort!
