Here we are, another week!
What we were up to this week: I have to get better about writing in my “Week in Review” card as the week hums along. I used to do it that way, but as of late I sit down and try to do it at the end of the weekend. I can’t remember Saturday morning by that time, let alone Monday! I do know that we spent a lot of time outside last week enjoying the spring weather that took FOREVER to get here. Holly was gone from Thursday afternoon-Sunday, and I had 24 hours to myself! All in all a good week:)
Techniques used this week: Lots of recoloring, lots of brushes per my usual. I really liked using a different brush for my calendar card, it might be hard to see but there is a little stamp over the days of the month that says recorded. So cute! I realized that I never talk about iphone versus DSLR photos, so from now on I am going to try and make a point of it each week. The sandbox photo, looking through the leaves, is an iphone photo as well as the black and white photo of Grandma with the girls. (Oh and the little instagram of Marie in the chair–her dad’s chair believe it or not from the early 70′s!) The rest were taken with my Nikon D700 and 35mm f/1.4 lens. The instagram with the black border was sent to me by the gal in the photo–I am never shy about asking photos to be taken in my absence and/or asking for them to be sent along later when I find out there was one taken. Everyone contributes to this album!! (My husband is a rockstar at taking photos when I am not around–he was responsible for all of the Easter ones and the Grandma photo from this week.)
Other thoughts: It just occurred to me that we are five weeks away from Week 26. That’s the mid-point of the year. What the?!?!
Supplies used this week: Most of the items are listed in the icons below. The #photooftheday brush was a free download at The Persnickety Prints blog, but for the life of me I cannot find it on their blog. The journaling strips are from a page template set I had in my stash, I just dragged them over and placed them in. (Incidentally, that’s a good tip to keep in mind. If you are a collector of digital page templates like I am, remember they are filled with elements and such that can you can add to your pages!)
