week 47 // november 17-23 : this week covered our thanksgiving trip to chicago - and while we didn't leave till tuesday (my weeks run sat-fri), i opted to dedicated most of the spread to the trip. only two pockets cover everyday events of the week, and i'm okay with that. i have done (and will do more) some layouts about this trip, but i really love seeing all the photos together - it gives a great condensed overview of what we did.
working on this week was a good reminder to use more big photos. this week was a pretty good mix of iphone and real camera shots, but most of the iphone snaps were edited in the vsco cam app rather than cropped down to an instagram square. i'm loving the effect of this size filling a 4x3 pocket, or two together in a 4x6.
this amy tan wood tag from the studio calico neverland PL kit was what pushed me to finish this week - it was the perfect accent for our trip.
if you look reeeeeeeeeally lose at the photo of the boys looking down at the chicago river, you can see "love this" between them. that's one of brushes from the upcoming this is me class w/ lexi bridges at studio calico. i LOVE these typewritten phrases, and will definitely be using them a ton.
i recorded a vine video on how it went together, but the upload failed. thankfully it saved to my phone and i was able to upload it to youtube. here's how this card went together :
happy tuesday!! i am currently in the process of trying to rescue my scraproom from the realities of last year.. i made too many pages and didn't do enough keeping things in order. i'm very much in the "making things worse" phase of the operation and hoping i hit the part where i can SEE improvement soon. i'll share some pics when it starts looking less hoarders-ish. ;)
