The last few pages that I have made from Austria will run chronologically in my 2014 album, but I'm jumping ahead a few days now as I want to use this month's sketch from Susan at Me & Mine before I run out of month.
The photo is a selfie (obviously) that my husband took at the top of Zwolferhorn. It's not a great photo but it's actually the only one that we have of all three of us from our holiday.
There's not a lot of colour in the photo, just the blue of the sky, so I had freedom of choice with my papers. I wanted a patterned background and started by looking through my single sheets (rather than my collections) for one, intending to use scraps for the three vertical stripes on the sketch. I actually found two coordinating papers from Jillibean Soup, one for the background and one with a striped pattern which I could cut up. I layered a couple of mats behind my photo, stitched the circle and added two lines of eyelet brads to it. I repeated the circle with a piece of wood veneer which was still on my craft desk having not been used on a previous page.
We have two children but our son no longer wants to go away with us. They used to get annoyed with me demanding that we all pose for a family photo when we're on holiday, but this is what happens when you forget.
