Yellow. That is my current mission. I will conquer and triumph over yellow. And 5 layouts later, I think I’ve got a good grip of yellow!
I took it even farther on this page and used some number thickers. It’s always annoyed me when so much of a pack of alphabets is numbers. I rarely use numbers. I think it goes back to elementary school and the constant badgering of Mrs. Malcolm to write out any numbers less than 10 as a word!!!!! I can just hear her tone now! AHH!!!! So that has carried over and I rarely use numbers because when I do, I spell out the word. Normally, this page would be “Two years…..” But this pack of Thickers was 1/4 numbers! And so annoying to me, I just couldn’t let them go to waste. Now, I still think it looks “wrong” because it is a number rather than the word, but for this title, it wouldn’t have fit well if I spelled it out.
Not much for journaling on this page. I did a similar page that I’ll post in a couple days that has some heart felt journaling. These will go next to each other in the album, so I didn’t feel this one needed more journaling of the same thing. Just the pictures and title tell the story enough. “Hallelujah carnival 2009 & 2011” is it for journaling.
I also used some foam dots to give lift and depth to the photos & orange circles.
