laying it out | not ready

Autumn is definitely here. I'm not ready. Not at all. The past two weeks have been pretty good considering, with sun and warm weather, but yesterday was the definite turn. I'm pretty sure we will be seeing the typical south Sweden autumn days with rain coming sideways, wind that goes straight through you, and bone chilling damp. So no, I'm not ready one little bit. I had to make a layout about it.

laying it out | my boys

What better things to scrap about than the boys in my life? Here are two layouts about two of them.

I am behind in both my scrapbooking and my Project Life at the moment but I am cutting myself some slack on that front as I just started working again after five months on sick leave. I only go in for two hours a day but it's still kicking my behind and I need to five myself plenty of time to rest. Because of this I might be a little quiet around here in the near future.

laying it out | of love fests and the drag of everyday

You know I'm a sucker for the husband. You know, as I said just the other day, that I love to create pages about him. And on a day like Valentine's Day I choose to continue with the sappy love. This is us. With a lot of glasses.

But then there is the drag of the everyday. The days when I'm left alone to entertain myself. As you can see in the pictures, I'm not all that good at entertaining myself - I've got a frown on all of them! But I figure it's a good idea to hash it all out and hope to do some healing through the scrapbooking.

laying it out | using older photos

So here's the thing: my life isn't always very eventful. I don't always have lots of new photos and topics to scrap about. What I do have is several photos from specific events and occasions that I never got to use (you know when you have hundreds of photos from one day and it's impossible to scrap them all when you first document the occasion). I also have photos that I want to use again and again simply because I feel like I want to document the occasion again from a different perspective, or because the photo just fits a feeling I want to convey.

So with that, I want to plug using older photos on new layouts. I want to do it by showing you these layouts.

Photos from January 2013, which I first used in this layout

Photos from July 2013, which I first used on this layout

I have used all of these photos before but I really like them, and I really like to remember the moments where they were taken, so I am not going to let the fact that they have already been used stop me.

I also feel like the new layouts are completely different in both feel and look. I think going back to older photos can be a good thing. I really like the soft colours and the modern, graphic patterns that I have used on these layouts and I think that compliments the photos so well.

As you can see, I have chosen to not journal on these new layouts. This time I wanted to focus on the feeling that these photos give me and just keep it simple. That can work very well especially since they have already been scrapped before.

And just for the heck of it, here is a new layout with new photos!
