For today's December Daily® story I decided to play around with digital layered templates as a home for my words and photos.
And, of course, we love Star Wars.
A few months back I saw that the Eugene Symphony was going to be playing the score to the original Star Wars movie while the movie was playing. I knew it would be an awesome activity for this crew and a great way to kick off the holiday season. Nothing about the evening disappointed.
Remember that not all my days/stories will include this many photos. It just happens to be a time when all the kids are here and we've got something fun planned. There are definitely "quiet days" stories to come. That's actually one of the things I love about this project - the opportunity to tell a variety of stories.
Here's how it all ended up looking in my album:
Big photos for the win again today.
When we are all out together I'm always looking for opportunities to get everyone in a photo together. I love seeing how they all interact together and who is chatting with who and what they are talking about. Last night's dinner included conversations about the passing of George HW Bush, 9-11, squishies, whether or not they could have soda with dinner, Simon finding something to select from the sushi-go-around, and Star Wars.
I'm also always looking for an opportunity to add other voices to my album (and to any of my projects). Today I was able to do this by using Simon's caption from his Instagram post after the event. I love reading his own reflections on the event and what he had to say about it. I will also never ever tire of seeing him enjoying this kind of stuff. That right there is magic.
I printed one of the photos that shows the screen, stage, etc in the 3x8 size and added it to the back of the page protector. On top I added an oval chipboard piece from this set.
On top of this page I added the chipboard #2 from the Main Kit and stamped the date using my rolling date stamp.
I use Photoshop to play around with my digital layered templates. One of the things I love about them is it can really help keep the focus on the words and photos. If you want to learn more about using my digital products in paper projects check out my Hybrid workshop.
