The MotherLOAD Marathon: Days 12 & 13

Day 12 was to use a dodgy photo on a layout.
Here you have me, almost cut out of the shot, DS looking away and another mother captured mid-gesticulation.

Day 13 was to think about any rituals used when scrapping.

Here’s what I do: the photo is always first; one that tells a story, obvious or otherwise. Then it’s on to patterned paper; for the last few months, my first port of call has been my 12×12 RUB box of scraps.  It’s close to overflowing and is in definite need of a cull.  Also, given my self-imposed stash buying ban, it’s a way of making me re-look at offcuts.

See that circular material embellie?  Deb sent me that, along with some other stuff, and as it reminded me of lines on hospital monitors, it was perfect for the layout.

  1. Aww…I love both of these pages but especially the one you did of you calling my mom! I should have taken a picture of her on the phone with you too! 🙂 She/we are so lucky to have such good blog friends. ❤

  2. Here I was thinking how clever you were to use the tag to cover the person in the background of your photo, and then along comes a layout about me. :o)

    I love what you did with the layout, Ruth, and that you used an embellishment I sent you. I feel so blessed to have a friend like you. Thanks, Ruth!!! xo
