Dare 41 - A week in pictures

This weeks theme certainly was a challenge; it well and truly got me working outside my comfort zone (and I think the others too!); remember to pop on over to the Speshals blog to see the stunning ways in which the rest of the team have interpreted the challenge this week.

Having been away for some of it and having other things planned that I wanted to use photos for, I had to leave it last minute (okay well that is the excuse this week!). And how hard was it to include so many photos on one page? I had a great idea then got a sneak peek at what Katie had done and aaaaaaaaggghhhh! Yep! You guessed it! I was going to do a column style with arrows and ledger paper. Katie’s is fun and fab and funky and mine would have looked quite different, even so it would have looked a bit awkward them both sitting together there on the blog.
I used photos taken from this week. A very untypical half term week. I took advantage of the Travelodge offer to take the kids away. We went on Sunday down to Staines (meal, pictures, late night), Monday to visit Suzanne (Frankie and Benny’s for lunch), Tuesday to Woburn Abby (fab, fab, fab day! I had to stop the car so the lioness could stroll across in front of us!), Wednesday was the cinema again with the girls for one of their friends’ birthday treats, followed by MacD’s and yesterday my friend Josephine came around with her two kids (forgot to take photos so had to trawl the hard drive for some to use instead!) and in the evening I took the girls to watch the local panto (see earlier post). So lots of photos and experiences to cram in there.

Products used

Cardstock - Bazzill (green and black), kraft unknown (unfortunately as it’s gorgeous and now all gone!)
Patterned Cardstock – Basic Grey Gypsy
Stamps – Making Memories (magnetic and foam)
Stickers – Doodlebug
Printed Twill (unknown)
Ink - Colorbox and Stazon
Buttons and stitching

I used one of the print page templates in my HP printer software to print out the photos on strips, leaving a photo space at intervals to stamp the date into; this saved having to cut all the photos down individually and then trying to line them up again! I also resorted to stamping on this weeks’ page. Just to remind myself why I usually avoid it like the plague. I get ink in all sorts of places, generally those where there isn’t meant to be any. Saying that, I’ve hardly used this MM foam alphabet (can’t remember the name) and I love the funky look, so maybe I will be using it more often.
