july/august feels so far away. like it was a hundred years ago. but really, it wasn’t that long ago. only 3 months ago i was a crazy photo snappin’ fool for 7 whole days. you can see the week’s worth of photos here.
i needed some time away from it all after that. we all got burned out on pictures. the boys asked me not to take pics of them anymore. i didn’t even want to pick up the camera. i didn’t want to convert and upload one more file.
but something happened a couple weekends ago. i think it was a post on ali edwards’ facebook page, showing off the album of lynette at nettio designs. it was clean. it was simple. it screamed magazine layout and i was smitten. after spending, oh…about 5 minutes looking at her album, i knew it was the design i had to go with. the ones i came up with during the week process were going to be fine. but i was trying too hard. putting too much on it. adding too much unnecessary stuff and it just never felt right. this was it.
so that weekend i started fresh. using digital templates i purchased from cathy zielske, i started making friday’s layouts. i felt amazing and freer to just use pictures. the pictures i loved. that after 3 months of separation, remembered how much i adored what i captured during that week.
it’s a long process, to add the pictures and the journaling. but we’re getting there. i have friday, saturday, sunday and monday almost done. basically the layout and words and photos are in their correct spots, but i still have to go back to proofread and double check details.
but i really wanted to share them with ya. ya wanna see what i have so far?
when i get the rest done…i’ll post another update. and then i have to figure out how to bind it. sometimes options can be a pain. =)
happy wednesday to you!
