First double layout ever

... but without a triple flip. Yes...I have to admit that I'm not much of an ice skater although this sultry heat in Sydney makes me imagine how great it would to be on ice...(with or without skates - I'm not fussy!).

I started this project as a single 6" X 6" page - being the page on the left. Even though the page looked complete to me, there was no space in which to write the few words that I had wanted to about Shi Wei and my sister. Also, I had more photos of little Shi Wei in the garden which were irresistible 'cos he is so darn cute! So I decided to add the page on the right - with the smaller photo, it was possible to add a strip of journalling and an extra word for a more expressive title. Who would have thought that it wasn't all planned from the beginning? *whistles nonchalantly while looking around* *wanders discreetly away*

PS: No, my sister is NOT wearing her pyjamas - at least I think she's not...But I have to agree with you that those shorts look mightily like PJs.

Great double pages! They look lovely. Who cares if she is wearing PJ's they are comfy!

Sue Madex said...

Love the rub on that's framing part of the photo - what a great idea. Looks great!

Lin Mei said...

Hey Dani! Yeah! PJs are the bees knees - I love lounging in them too but one has to create a little bit of scandal for one's siblings every so often.

Lin Mei said...

Thank you, Sue! For some reason, I was really into frames for this layout - it all started with the square stickers from the Winter Bright kit and then just carried on...

Great job Lin Mei, yep those 6x6 layouts never give enough space for journalling!

:) Marcia

Lin Mei said...

Hey Marcia! I'm with you. I've tried hidden journalling but it just adds extra warp factor to the page :(

Kari said...

This is wonderful Lin Mei! Gorgeous layout and I'm so inspired by your use of rubons!

Lin Mei said...

Thanks so much, Kari! Great to see you on-line again as I was wondering where you'd been.
