Getting pages done ..

Well, I crossed three more layouts off my list. The first two here are more of a "getting it done" kind of work. I'm not thrilled with either page, but at least they're no longer in my pile of pages to do.

Oh, and I'm sorry about the camera glare. I took at least 10 pictures of each layout, trying to get a shot with no glare. No dice, I have glare.

--------------------------------------------------------


The quote on the top right says "Celebrate the gifts of today" and they cute under Jordan says "cute as a bug" with a little bug flying (it's vellum, and doesn't quite pop out on the page like I had hoped it would).

--------------------------------------------------------

I inked the title, journaling, and one picture mat with a bronze colored ink. You can't tell here, but it stands out better in person.

Here's the journaling:
Tubes, Round Two

About six months after Jordan’s first set of tubes fell out, more fluid was discovered collecting behind her eardrums. After having her hearing tested and finding out that she had a severe degradation in hearing, we decided to go for another set of tubes. We went to the surgical center in Fairfax for the procedure, and she did great there. The nurses and doctor got a kick out of the HUGE bear she brought as a comfort item. When she came to, the nurse asked if she wanted a popsicle, and she said “I do, but after I see my mommy first”. Turned out she had a lot of “molasses” fluid in her ears, along with scar tissue in her left ear. But her hearing quickly improved after the procedure, which was great! February 13, 2007

The Easter layout I totally LOVE! It looks better in person, as the edges of all of the mat paper are inked with a dark pink ink to match the paper.

You were productive! Good job! I really love the last one as well. Inked edges always make a page "finished".
