I'm turning back again to thinking about journaling. That balance I want to achieve between having the page look the way I want it - and having the story. So, inspired by Mitra's thoughts on putting together an album, along with with basic plan I used for some Scrap365 pages, I made this.
It's another page with a flap.
I've written before about The (Not So) Small One's trips to the dentist. She has been brave and good and gutsy through a long treatment plan; and we aren't quite there yet. Five years since it started, she tells me: we're still going back every couple of months. The Five Year Face..and counting..
But I've probably said enough already. Nobody wants their Mum telling the world too much about their teeth - her mouth is firmly clamped shut in this picture, and mine should be too. So - hidden journaling, with a hint through the circle I punched to look like she might finally be opening up
It started with an 80's combination: I'm seeing that pink and grey coming back; but I added some last minute splashes of colour and I typed right onto the patterned paper.
Oh, did someone say 80's? It's 25 years since the first Comic Relief Red Nose Day here in the UK, this Friday, and I'm off to find a nose. Because I can feel another page coming on..
