As promised or should I say challenged, I completed a layout using the December sketch from project 12 (see previous post).
It has been so long since I completed a scrapbooking layout I felt so 'rusty'. Hopefully with more practice I will get back into the groove.
Another challenge presented itself while completing the layout. I can't stand spelling mistakes, incorrect punctuation and most things grammar - not that I am perfect at it by a long shot, but I often pick up mistakes in other people's writing. I am one of those people that refuse to talk in modern abbreviations when sending text messages. Anyway, I noticed after I had printed and stuck down the journaling strip that I had inadvertently left out a word, meaning one sentence didn't make sense. I did debate adding in the missing word with a pen, but thought that it would only draw attention to it. I then debated if I should rip it up and re-print it (including the cutting, border punching and inking) but decided I should just let it be. I am letting go.
I love that you will both let me take photos of you.
Emily, you certainly take every opportunity to strike a pose for photos. I still have to get you to say something as I take the photo or you give me a fake, cheesy smile. Those blue eyes, porcelain skin and those curls are just so you.
Sophie, you certainly don't sit still for long. Normally when I try to take a photo you are up and gone in a blur. Fortunately you are a little copycat and were quite [content] to copy your sister today and sit still while I took your photo. You have such a cheeky smile.
