Two page layout...

Hello! I'm back with another page! A while back I made a lot of two page layouts. Actually, I even remember not letting myself make those pages that didn't have enough photos for a two page spread. Things change. Later I went strictly to 12x12 singe page layouts... and then I switched to 8.5x11... and today, first time in many years, I made a double 8.5x11 page.


It was so much fun to make it... and it wasn't that scary... and I'm sure you'll see me do this more often now.


Here's each side a little closer...


I must admit that I don't like making birthday layouts. I can't really pinpoint the reason, but it's just not my type of pages that I like to create. But this page is kind of a twist on a birthday page - it features a photo from the actual Birthday, it talks about this day, but at the same time it shows the growth of a child through the years and so much more.


I'm sure it will be the one that kids would like to go back and look at. I hope I can do something similar about each child in the family. 


To balance the right side, I tried to keep the left side pretty simple - it's already overwhelming with the amount of photos it has. In fact, I was able to fit 18 in there!


FYI - the colors in real life are a little brighter than they appear here - could be the rainy day... All of the pictures were printed at home on a regular cardstock (for some reason, they turn out better on cardstock than photo paper with this printer).

This six-year-old starts school in five day. FIVE DAYS! That means our summer is over... I can't believe they start so early this year. As always it's a little sad and a little exciting at the same time. Hopefully she will like school!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

See you soon!

  2. Спасибо! :)) Лиана по возврасту как раз вписывается в 1й, но по их новым требованиям, ребёнок должен уметь читать на level 4 до первого класса. Раньше такого не было когда мои старшие поступали. Она по русски читает, а по английски нет, поэтому пойдёт в К. Хотя у моих двух старших день рождения в Сент. и Окт., а у этой в Августе, так что как раз в том же возрасте и эта начнёт школу.

    Спасибо за поздравления и пожелания!

  7. Инна, молодец что решила сделать пирожки - кусочек родины в далёком крае!

    Тесто должно быть очень мягким - оно не липнет к рукам только из за того что обвалено в муке. Намного мягче чем на пильмени (то есть когда месишь то примерно так и получается, а когда оно подрастёт тогда становится очень нежным и мягким) Фото к сожалению не открывается, но ооочень хотелось бы посмотреть. Скинь его мне на email.
