My latest stuff

Sorry for the odd glare on these, I am at work and have weird lighting.

First the page I messed up last week, I finished it, I originally had the pics in a totally different kind of lo, but I think this works ok to.
This is also my first try at sewing, inking edges, and distressing paper (the green strip)

those are great! I have found that if I take the picture at a slight angle, the glare goes away and the page is better captured (for when I can't take pictures in natural light). you see more of my table that way, but the picture overall is better (see my weekend work thread to get what I'm talking about).

anyhow, those are terrific pages! the pictures tags are awesome, totally stealing that idea! I love the ribbons on the first haircut page. and what did you use for your guide in cutting the big circle with the pictures? I'm trying to find a way to cut big circles better - I've used a bowl to outline and I've printed the largest cricle possible with Word. my circle cutter only goes to 6" diameter.

Thank you ladies!

That large circle is from a plate. Biggrin I keep wanting to buy circle shapes but never seem to get around to it.

I like the circle pattern on the 4th of July one. I can also see all the work you put into that first pae, with the pictures and the sewing. It looks wonderful.

That first page is so cool how you put all the pics like a keychain. That idea is definitely saved to my lift folder. The stitching is nice too! Did you do it my hand, or use a sewing machine?
And I love, love, love the July 4th page. The way you put all the pics in a circle and finished it with stars is fabulous. WtG!
That last pages is awesome too.
TFS all those with us! i love your work!!

Awesome LOs! I like how you hung the photos on the first one - what a great way to have several pictures on the page without using too much space! The 4th of July one with the big circle is my favorite!
