December 15: An annual Christmas got-together with family friends.
Left: I created the right side first, which led to the choice of same patterned paper to help connect the spread. I wanted to include my place card from the table and though adding journaling, title and place cardbon top of the single the patterned paperwould help ground it.
Journaling reads: A little disappointed only Mum and I could attend this year, Kim assured Talia we were the best ones to have. I mean really, who else would be outside playing What’s the time Mr Wolf? Toby liked his present, an Ugly Dog that makes obnoxious noises, but I think Kim liked it more. The first wearing of Talia’s special new Christmas dress, the table set with handmade place cards, crackers and a feast; an evening of Christmas joy.
Right: I created the photo collage in Photoshop Elements, filling the remaining space with patterned paper after it was printed.
