Kinda Slide - Bobbie 1994This was the layout Bobbie threatened to get rid of last weekend when I brought it home from the ‘crop and shop’.  He refuses to look at his old baby photo’s – so typical for a boy his age I guess.  But he was soooo cute!

This page came together very quickly as well.  I love using buttons and such for little boy pages.   The papers and embellishments really suited the photo and colours.

Bobbie – Aged 3 – 1994 (he was actually only two)

We put you into daycare so that you and Aimee would have other kids to play with.

You stayed in daycare all the way thru to preschool, and some of the kids you went there with you still know now – almost 13 years later.

Bobbie - 1994Tonight I went out to scrap in the real world.  I had actually gone to organise my class for Tuesday but only had one student for the day so I cancelled the class.

I also had to enter the classes for next Term into the calendar, which I did.  I now have eleven classes next term, and because of the subject matter I should have relatively fll classes for the whole term.  Linda also asked me to add two more handbag classes to next term but on Saturdays instead as many can’t make classes during the week.  So I added two classes during August.

Because I couldn’t find my sketch pad tonight before I left I didn’t get to put together any of the samples for next terms classes, which is a pain, but I’ll have a god search for it tomorrow, it’s bound to turn up somewhere.

So instead of wasting the next hour or so that I had, I found Bobbie’s kinda album and decided to scrap another one of his photo’s from there.  This page came together very easily.  It took maybe ten minutes to find the cardstock (prisma), paper (can’t remember), ribbons (making memories) and buttons (unknown). 

I wanted to add journaling but the layout didn’t lend itself to a jounralling block, so I used Vicki’s suggestion and journaled around the edges of the photo.  Have to agree with Vicki, it really did soften the edges of the photo frame/mat.  I love the way the layout turned out, so quick and simple, but effective.

Journaling reads:

Another gorgeous photo taken at kindy.  You were such a terror but anyone looking at you wouldn’t think so because you had such an angelic face.  You haven’t changed much, have you?

 It was only when I scanned the photo I realised it really was crooked on the page, but then again as I keep having to remind my anal self, the pages don’t have to be perfect.  It’s the imperfections that make the pages unique and interesting.

I won’t be showing Bobbie this page, he didn’t like last weeks, and threatened to throw it out, so its a waste of time showing him this one – he’s a typical fifteen year old – doesn’t like to be reminded he was a little boy once.
