Smaller Scrapbooking 2

Hooray for the weekend! The sun is shining here and I'm hopeful that there is a barbecue somewhere in my very near future. It'll be good to get outside. I've been reading and knitting and crocheting, as you might have predicted (thank you for all the suggestions!), but I've been missing the scrapbooking. So last night I thought about the nearly finished page on my desk upstairs, and about how managing stairs was probably doing great things for my arm muscles, and I made it all the way up to the top floor.


It's not a new subject - it's the one I used for One Photo & Twenty Words this month - but I thought there was a layout in it and that something quick would give me another chance to try smaller scrapbooking.

So I stuck it down, hopped over to my photographing place, took a picture and made it back downstairs in time for the football...

...then I got up this morning and looked at the picture and discovered I hadn't stuck down several of the bits I liked the most. Oh. I hustled myself back upstairs, found them lying beside my desk, glued them on and took another picture. It's not straight. I can see that now. But that's what you get when you stand on one leg. Embracing the imperfection here this morning....

...and hoping to be giving you a wave with Me On Monday. Maybe you'll wave back?

Another fabulous layout! It's those little bits that you do so brilliantly!

Cheri said...

Love this layout! But you shouldn't have to hobble up to your perch in the sky to scrapbook. Get the family to bring your most important tools and bits downstairs. Then you can practice scrapbooking with very limited supplies! :)

Two trips up to the top, you must have been missing the paper. Cute page - and I'm glad I'm not the only one who figures out after the page is photographed that I forgot to stick down a bit or two as planned.

The glasses do make a very cute addition to this layout. Well worth the second trip and picture.

is that a harry potter font? looks like it haha

Nathalie said...

Totally loving this change of format! And i totally agree on the ease of turning Abi's meme into pages! I love to do that (but of course it is even easier when you can walk up stairs!)

Abi said...

I LOVE that you turned a meme into a page. I have used my one photo and twenty words a few times on a PL layout but I agree it looks fantastic as a title and journalling all in one.

I hope TSO is enjoying doing everything and nothing now the exams are coming to an end!

Oh this is cute - I like the glasses. Glad you managed to get some scrapping done :)

Amy said...

Sian - you know, this qualifies as scrapping in the moment for you ... and all with a fracture! Well done indeed :) Don't try and do too much though, you need to heal.

I agree with everyone else - a fabulous layout. I'm hoping to wave back to you on Monday this week.

I KNEW you wouldn't be able to keep away from paper...but agree with Cheri that you should have got someone to bring some bits downstairs for you!...hoping to join you tomorrow

The patterned library pocket is the perfect addition to your layout. I always love the little bits and pieces you use. They add just the perfect touch.

A lovely page and you deserve the Scrapbookong In Adversity medal :). I'm with those who think your limber youngsters need to fetch and carry for you ! Hoping the sun and barbecue are cheering and your foot is heing nicely .

Great layout - I'm glad you managed to get yourself up to the top floor :)

Sandra said...

It's a truly adorable page.

Eerrrr are you really expecting me to do another selfie? Lol ... I was thinking that might be it one for the rest of the year (yes, I hate photos of me) but I'm not going as far as you did to get out of a proper selfie last week :)

This must be a time where you wish you lived in a bungalow rather than a town house! Great layout, all that extra exercise was worth it.
Hope you are healing well, keep resting as much as you can x

I imagine you have a similar sentiment yourself right now! Great page. I really like this style you've created to fit the type written journalling.

Jo said...

Great layout, well done for managing all of those stairs!

Melissa said...

So glad you turned that moment into a layout - it looks great!

Louise said...

abi's meme is perfect for scrapping. I think 20 words is something i can use on all my layouts x the colour and composition is gorgeous x

Sandie said...

Great page Sian, always special by the little bits you add. Worth the second trip up those stairs!

Lisa-Jane said...

LOVE that embellishment of the spectacles! :-)

Gail said...

It looks great! Well done on getting up there not once but twice!
