By now, Chloe has made it into most of your homes, and I trust 'she' is finding a spot in your projects. I am not exactly caught up with my pocket page album this year, but when a kit arrives, I go where the inspiration strikes and these photos of a recent vacation fit perfectly with the colors of April's kit.
For once, I had plenty of photos to work with, which means little bits and pieces were all I needed to pull this all together. The signature Felicity Jane polka dot paper provided the perfect 'canvas' for my blank spaces. One I chose to fill with journaling about our time together, and the other I decorated using some of the My Mind's Eye supplies that were included in this month's kit.
I actually jumped ahead a couple weeks in my album because these photos were a by-product of my week away. In Alaska, I tend to grab clothing that makes me warm. Cozy turtlenecks are my jam. After spending a few days in Arizona, shopping with my sister, I was inspired to put a *tiny* bit more work into my outfits. Let's face it, comfort is always key, but a fun scarf can help, right? I wanted to document these silly selfies that we sent each other once we got home.
The "THESE DAYS" card reminded me of my first scrapbooks I created in high school. I loved "word confetti" and would cut phrases from my Seventeen magazines to include on my pages. Well, since I was going there... I decided to go ALL the way old school and do something I vowed I'd never do again... silhouette my photo. I had just finished cutting out my FJ sticker sheet, and I think I'll blame this decision on that. Once I started intricately trimming, I just. couldn't. stop.
The journaling card on the top right was made from the My Mind's Eye label sticker sheet that came in the kit. Those are items I am tempted to hoard away, waiting for the perfect opportunity to use, but I encouraged myself to go ahead and use them all on one card because I liked the way they looked together, and they provided a great spot for journaling.
