Check out my Poll!
No, this isn't it...will get to that later! This is a layout - NOT MINE! - that I found on one of my favourite blogs recently (BANANAFROG again...) & it is a year in review one. Well, you know I did one of those recently & needed 50 pictures so created a Picasa Collage, so this would NOT do if you have a big family like me! BUT I do think it would make a great layout for a MONTH IN REVIEW which could be a bit more achievable than the 365 - which I am photographing for but have yet to compile.
Nice layout & love the doggy pile effect of the photos randomly layered over one another & the whited out journalling spot. A word of warning - I've done this before & it can be VERY frustrating (& ruin your pen) waiting for the paint to dry & trying to write on it before it does SO rather do this in 2 stages, with a good few hours, or overnight preferably,in between, so that you keep your fineliner in tip-top condition & don't have to scrape it through...
This is an award that I found on another blog last week (can't remember which one, sorry!) that was up for grabs to anyone deserving, so...if you like & you have a blog that showcases your creations then this could be for you too!
I've had a little play this morning & come up with a poll that I created on Vizu ( a site specializing in polls) only to see, when adding it to my sidebar, that Blogger has an "Add poll" gadget! Oh well...perhaps this one is more specialised, who knows? Anyway, I am running it for a week, just for fun, so play along if you like. I customized all the colours & I see it has come out black & white after all that! I found it on the Pink Paislee site where I have registered & uploaded 4 of my layouts. If any of you are members there please leave me a comment & join "my friends!" - seems like a lovely site/gallery & think it gets quite a lot of exposure so why not follow suit? See some of you are there already...
I have been busy with my Design Team layouts aswell last week, so they are done & dusted but can't show them to you yet. My confidence must be growing 'cos I LOVE both of them & was very nervous for my first installments, so they were a bit on the safe side!
Well, I think that's enough food for thought for a busy Tuesday morning so will sign off now ;-)
Don't forget to put in your vote on my poll!
