What a week this has been and its only Wednesday. I'm still have some computer issues which have really sent me reeling. I've come to realize that I'm not the type of person that gives up easily and this computer migration has been challenging at best. I will make it work if it kills me, which it may just do.
I was determined yesterday to get my pages done for the week but it was a challenge. My Photoshop Elements was not fully functioning so I couldn't use a lot of my digital supplies which I've also come to realize is a huge part of how I complete this project. I'm more of a digital scrapper and really hate when I have to hand write anything. I can squeeze more details into a space if its typed than written and I feel some of my work this week suffers because of the need for more handwriting.
I had so many ideas of what I was going to do but I was so frustrated that I just wanted to get it done. I absolutely love the content of this weeks photos I just wish I was able to execute it a bit better.
Anyway, here it is, such as it is.
and the left side.
I made the title slot last as usual and completely forgot I had used the same gingham paper for the slot next door. I may go back and change this later, I just haven't decided for sure yet.
The slot for Sunday and our trip into Oakland for dinner at the Colombo Club.
I loved the photo I snapped of Simone's homemade Lunchable, which she requests all the time now. And a shot of my old laptop, reaching a critical stage. If I new what was coming, I don't know if I would have wished so hard for a new computer.
A few shots this past week from the Photo a Day challenge, I loved them both so they made it in.
I loved these shots of Simone at the spray park. This is a slot in particular where I would have done more writing. I may go back and redo this one now that my Photoshop is up and running.
I loved the Oh Snap dicut from this months Studio Calico kit, I knew it had to be used right away. I had the old Hello my name is tag from somewhere not sure where. I love the way the filter looks on this photo. I used the FotoRus app for this shot.
I just loved our Mother's Day at school so the top two slots are devoted to them. I actually like my writing on the top card.
Here's a close up of the place mat Simone drew for me.
Here's the card talking about the day.
As you can see my computer was back up so I was able to do some digital stuff for the remainder of the book. It felt better and more like me so I was happy about that.
I love these two slots.
A few Instagram milestones for me, 150 followers and my 600th photo.
A slot for our girls day out getting our nails painted.
The fact that this is done on schedule makes me happy.
I'm taking off tomorrow for a week by myself. I'm heading back east to visit my brother and his family. I'll be checking in here and there so keep a look out for some photos soon.
Have a great rest of the week.
