State Fair Jitters
I also finished a two album (8.5 x 8.5) project of my son's and a screaming mother's trip to Washington DC and New York City. I'll post just three. They are not the best pages but each is special for a reason.
The first layout is of the Holocaust Museum. We were not allowed to take pictures inside, so this is the only picture all of us got. But it is important for Jacob to "Remember" the unsung hero's of WWII. If you get a chance to go be prepared for it to change your life.
The second layout is in NYC. FAO Swartz was the most fun, welcoming place. We did not get to go to traditional touristy places due to the fact we were in the middle of a bad Nor'easter. So we found fun alternatives. The boys had so much fun being welcomed by honor guards holding Star War light sabers. What a blast!
The third layout is just a tip layout. I kept our schedule, but I did not like the look of the pages when I tried to cut and paste and figure out how to make it fit my page. So I scanned the schedule (as well as other things) and saved it in Photoshop Elements 4. I was able to crop and size the image to get what I want and then printed it on vellum so I could see the Basic Grey paper underneath. I thought it was a pretty good idea.
October is Breast Cancer Month and I did two layouts one for my Aunt Pat who is a 15 year survivor and one for Aunt Evelyn who died a horrible death due to undetected Breast Cancer.I've also been back to the zoo taking more pictures. I need to go once more. My battery died last time.
