Sign of the times......

My teenage daughters love photography, and unlike their mum, they love photos of themselves!
Not only that, but they love editing too.This leads to a staggering amount of time on the computer, and in particular - Facebook-  where they share these photos!
How times have changed, everything is so instant now- and the number of "likes" so important to them.

I created this layout yesterday at my local crop and used the latest challenge from Sarah's cards -which was to use 5 patterned papers. I only used a tiny amount of patterned paper, but did use 5!

The butterflies were punched with a martha Stewart punch and I used a 6x6 pad of Blossom soup patterned paper by Jillibean soup. 

Thanks for stopping by

  7. Hi Karen,

    Thanks for your comments on my blog : )
    In answer to your question re the planning and white space. I'm not really a planner to be honest. And if I do have a plan I'm not best at keeping to it. I know what you mean, I tend to fill a page and every now and then I do something more simple and like it and wonder why I don't do it more often.

    Love your work by the way. You have a lovely style x

  8. LOL - I am with you on the not particularly liking shots of me - that is a gorgeous photo, and I love what you have done with all the different papers - it's a great moment to capture about how the world is now :)

  9. Gorgeous photo, and I love how you have used the facebook Logo on the LO. Thanks for playing along with our challenge at Sarah's Cards.

  10. Fab and a lovely photo too. :)

  11. I like the colours and logos but the best bit for me is the mix of fonts and the graphic feel to the page. Lovely photo too. Thanks for playing along with the challenge :)

  12. what a great page and a real sign of the times, be great to look back on lol thanks for playing along x

  13. Fab design! Love the butterflies and the subject of the layout. Definitely something to record for the future. Thanks for playing along with the challenge xx

  14. Fab idea for a page and it's a lovely profile picture ;) Clever way of using five different pattern papers :) Thanks for playing along with our challenge at Sarah's Cards :) xxx
