20 20 20On Tuesday, I had a doctors appointment at 10:20 - which I had forgotten about until I had left the house at 8am and driven half way to work (30 minutes) so had to turn around and go back home. Once home I had an hour and 20 minutes to kill so stripped the bed and put the washing on. What to do next? - a little blog hopping of course!
The first blog I looked at was Louise's and she had been indulging in a little 20 20 scrapbooking. I had seen this in JOT magazine and on Sians blog. I was inspired . We went to Disneyland Paris before I scrapbooked and I have never scrapped any of the photos from there but I was sent some 'Say Cheese' to design with this month and though I should get some of the photos scrapped.
At the crop on Saturday, I had 1/2 hour to spare at the end when I didn't want to start a new page so spent 10 minutes laying some washi tape down on black card - another Pinterest idea. I used this for the base of my page so I set a 20 minute timer on my phone and during the first 20 minutes I chose and laid out all the elements.
Over the next 20 minutes I stuck them down and added some journaling and finished the title and cut a little camera to pop dot over the printed one.
For the last 20 minutes - all that was left was to outline the title in white and cut out some more elements, shuffle them around and decide not to use them.
Apologies for the rubbish photos
- too dark in the morning and too dark in the evening to get a decent photo.
If you take into consideration the time I took to lay down the wahsi tape this page did only take an hour to make - what a result! It just goes to show that David isn't correct when he says I waste time on the internet - it was very productive on Tuesday.
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. Talented blog writers (thank you Louise)
2. Extra time in the morning.
3. A new and quick way to scrapbook (thank you Sian)
