Movin' on up!!!

After completing my Mini Album and sending it off to my husband, I figured the only way was up, but the thought of tackling a full 12x12 layout was beyond me.  After working with layouts that had limited space to fill up, coming up ideas to fill a page (I struggle with blank space on a page) was somewhat of a challenge but a challenge I was ready to accept.  I picked out 2 photos that I really wanted to work with because they were of me and my husband in uniform during our time in the Royal Australian Navy.   The photo of me I wanted to make a little girly because drab grey coveralls don't really make a girl feel good,  and after working hard to get over my fear of blank space I found a happy medium between feminine and displaying truth behind the photo.

When I started working on the layout of my husbands photo I learnt my first lesson in making a LO flow, I was really struggling to feel happy with what I had done with it so I showed my work in progress to my BFF who said she didn't feel like it was flowing, and she was 100% right.  I went back over the LO and started to connect all the bits and pieces and then it really all started to come together.  Its amazing how a little criticism can really help.

They may my favorite LOs but I am really enjoying all the new things I am learning (thank you YouTube), and tomorrow I am off to the Sydney Craft Show so lets hope I pick up a tip or two there as well.

    And I can't wait for the craft show. I am so excited I can hardly sleep. Well, not really that exited, but excited all the same.
