So, due to my inability to plan ahead or work with a clock, I have gotten absolutely nowhere today. Well, not nowhere but ....oh, never mind. I'm rambling again. Here's a sketch I created from the project I am working on for Hello Story. I made a digital template for one of Ali's assignments and this is the result. WOW, right? Not very impressive but I hope my resulting layout will be nice. So Ali basically used sixteen 3 inch squares, many of which were filled with photos. The remaining squares on the assignment are filled with mathematics signs such as + and = and &. If you get my drift. Maybe it will all be clear once I post my layout in a day or so. Still need to have it printed since it is a hybrid 12x12 layout which I will have printed by Costco.

Anyway, if you hate it, I will understand. If you like it, GREAT! Extra credit if you actually use a math symbol and metallic or bling-y paper or embellishments. That's my plan anyway. Sorry to be such a ditz. My brain stopped working last month when I turned 60. YIKES!!!

Have fun!

Okay, perhaps there is no activity here because your fearless hostess has taken too long to post her layout for this sketch??? Without further ado, here it is.

I was so disappointed about an error I made in the Photoshop preparation of this digi/hybrid layout that I became blocked about finishing it and posting it. I didn't want to fix it and spend another couple of bucks at Costco to repprint it so I am posting it as is. Let me know if you see my mistake. Insane I know, but these little things (mistakes) in my scrapbooks make me crazy. I'm such a perfectionist.

So I created the template in Photoshop. Used Club Scrap Tribal paper for the background and cut the shapes on my Silhouette. The Hello Story lesson in Week 5 is Mathematics. Ali's layout used plus signs to link a series of photos. I pretty much copied her design directly but her layout seems much more impressive. Oh, well......it's done. On to the next one.

Thanks for looking. I hope someone will make a layout using this sketch. If not, I'll try to do better next month.

I think this is a great layout for including lots of photos. It's definitely a challenging sketch to work with - but that's why we call it a challenge, right??? :lol:

I actually have some ideas for this, but I need to print photos from Photoshop, since the photos I'm thinking of don't naturally crop down to 3x3. So we'll see. Right now, my biggest single challenge is time. I've started piling weight back on over the last few months, so I've got to be careful about spending too much "free" time sitting down. Perhaps it's time to figure out how to crop standing up? LOL.

I took these photos this morning!! We were at our local heritage railway and there were all these guys at work, wearing the high visibility clothing.
Thankyou Jen for the sketch, although some of my photos refused to be square!!
Kathryn.
