The fruits of the NSD 2012 weekend

Although I did a ton of gardening over the weekend, I managed to pull together a few layouts for some of the challenges going on over at Big Picture Classes and Two Peas in a Bucket.

The first was a challenge to use 2 photos in a now and then comparative style layout. I chose a photo of me 16 years ago and a current photo and the journalling is a list of things I wanted to tell my younger self. I paired this with a colour challenge.

16 years later

My second layout uses everyday candid photos taken at the playground over the course of several years (actually, the date should be ’11 not ’12) and the journalling talks about favourite places/things and how I’ve enjoyed watching my daughter develop. I paired this with a challenge to use chevrons (which I had to fashion myself as I don’t own any chevron paper).


The final layout is of a Hermitage in Warkworth. The journalling is in two parts. The journalling on the left tells about what we saw, liked, and some of the history of the site. The journalling on the left tells of how much my daughter enjoyed the boat ride to the hermitage. I paired this with a challenge to layer under a negative (in this case, a die cut W) shape.


The challenges over at 2peas are going on until next Sunday if you fancy having a go. I’m hoping I might get a few more done this week whenever I’m not gardening or prepping photos for Week in the Life.


Love you too, babe
