Next up is some awkward inspiration. Awkward Family Photos is a website dedicated to those what were we thinking moments. (Go look, but please don't forget to come back-you really can get lost in the awkwardness!) Most of them seem to have happened in the 80's because really, don't we all have a few moments in the 80's we just wonder about? Here is (one of) my awkward moments with my own family.
I kept this layout simple as really, there is a lot going on in this photo. To give it some POP I used a chipboard question mark covered in cardstock that matched my super cool purple plaid shirt.
And here is an example of some of Erin Sweeney's awkward moments-because we can be awkward all by ourselves too. When Erin told me about this layout she was trying to describe how big her head looked in that last picture...and it does. But not in real life. She has a perfectly proportioned head :)
Finally here is a layout inspired by Facebook. I recently saw a preview for the new Facebook movie coming out and got all weepy (hey I'm pregnant remember??) seeing all the moments shared there. The birth of a child, good news, bad news and just the day to day news. Living far away from all of my family, and many of my friends, it really is nice to know that my oldest friend is knitting tonight, a dear friend just got engaged, or a baby is on the way. Here is a layout I created about the announcement that I was expecting my third child. The journaling consists of all the well wishes and congratulations from
friends all over the world. As a person who saves most of the notes, cards, and letters she has gotten, Facebook gives me a much easier way to keep them together :)
Here I adapted one of my favorite templates from Paislee Press (great digi paper and wonderful inspiration there!) I love the POP the yellow X gives :)
