Project Life Week 20

I am sad to say that this is the only crafty activity I have managed in the past week and I only really got it done this morning. I just haven't been feeling it. This spread is pretty minimalist even by my own standards but I am happy with how it turned out and really glad to have these events recorded.

I must apologise for the reflections on the pages this week. It has been threatening to rain all morning and I finally just had to take the photos or not post. They are not great but you will get the general idea at any rate.

This is the reverse of last weeks G insert. It was all subtly patterned white cards as it was mainly the back of Studio Calico kit cards. I used a couple of these plain backdrops but also added in Basic Grey card from the Clippings collection, an Elle's Studio Today's Story card and a red Simple Stories mini card from one of their Snap pads. I also included some SC stickers, an Amy Tangerine puffy sticker and a flair from Paper Bakery.

We have been enduring some very hot weather here in Singapore. A lot of our time has been spent in or by the pool with Miss Three. I have also included some of the random things we see in Singapore like a million dollar car dropping off an elderly gent outside a temple. Turns out the car was a bit low and he really struggled to get out! I also added a couple of photos of our regular post ballet dim sum and cut fruit snack. These are the things we do all the time but I have never bothered to record. Just the sort of thing I want to have in PL.

The second half of the spread is pretty minimalist. The central four spots are a combination of patterned paper (the chevron) and SC cards. The bottom row is a Pebbles floral card and a Simple Stories Snap insert. The top row is a pair of Snap 4 x 6 cards.

The middle row is pictures from an outing we took to watch dragon boating at Marina Bay. The boats were further from shore than we expected and it started to rain when we arrived but it was a fun walk around the bay to get there. The bottom photos are from a couple of public art installations we saw while walking around the bay. I especially liked the images of hands holding water which was displayed in the fountain outside the Arts and Science Museum. They were black and white and very effective. The top row is a picture of hubby on our weekly coffee date and MT showing off her swimming skills. She is really making massive progress with her swimming now.

I am hoping to get a bit more scrapbooking done this week, and will share that here with you soon. All the Studio Calico drama has left a very bad taste in my mouth but I am happy to move onwards and upwards!

Have a great Tuesday!
