I know the answer: this summer I really wanted to make some improvement with my studies and, since I was not working, I’ve spent almost two months closed in my room, without going anywhere, with the exception of the supermarket (still needed food after all), making tons of notes and studying, I don’t know how many pens I’ve consumed. And when I stopped and went out again, it was already the end of September! I skipped summer this year… For this layout I’ve used the We Are Family collection by Echo Park with a few vellum elements by Maggie Holmes Open Book collection.
When I went to school (up to ten years ago), we used to take notes with paper and pen. I had to attend a couple of classes in college this winter, and on the first day I obviously showed up with my dear pen and paper. I wouldn’t have felt any different if I had shown up with a clay tablet: almost all the students were taking notes on computers and ipads, and they were all typing so fast! They also took pictures of the board instead of coping it down! For this page I’ve used the We Are Family collection by Echo Park and two vellum pieces from Maggie Holmes Open Book collection.
I’m not talking about the wonderful novel by M. Ende, I’m talking about my neverending story, that is way less wonderful! What is never ending in my life is college: I enrolled many years ago and I don’t know if I’ll ever finish it, but I’m doing other things in the meantime, so it’s ok. For this layout I’ve used the last scraps from the We Are Family collection by Echo Park and some of the vellum pieces from the Open Book collection by Maggie Holmes. The light bulb piece is the reason why I’ve bought the vellum pack, I wish I had more, it’s so cute!
This layout features my avatar from the Bitstrips app. This app makes daily comic strips with you and your friends as characters. As you can see, even digital me likes to binge-watch, the only difference is that I would stock on redbull and not coffee… For this page I’ve used paper from the We Are Family collection by Echo Park and a strip of gold glittery Christmas wrapping paper!
I’m also working on a mini album about TV series addiction, I don’t know yet how that will turn out to be 🙂 Who else is watching too many TV series?
I was complaining with myself lately because, when I look at other people’s pictures, they always have different expressions, while I have only two: I-haven’t-slept-in-a-century and Mona Lisa. That’s why I took these ridiculous selfies at the mirror, I took more than twenty different expressions, then printed just seven of them to make this layout. I know it looks like a silly thing to do but it was also kind of fun! Especially the first on top makes me really laugh…. I’ve used the We Are Family collection by Echo Park.
I’m making some changes in my life right now, and it seems fit to make a couple of pages about following dreams. For the first page I’ve added an overlay with PicMonkey to the photo and I’ve used paper and elements from the Good Day Sunshine collection by Simple Stories and one stripe of paper from the We Are Family collection by Echo Park.
For the second layout I’ve made a background with watercolors, writing this quote I’m very fond of from H. Hesse: “You must find your dream, then the way becomes easy. But there is no dream that lasts forever, every dream is followed by another and one should not cling to any particular one”. Papers and stickers are from the We Are Family collection.
