DYL Week 2 Sketch 2

I'd been looking forward to getting the Week 2 handout for Cathy's Design Your Life class but knew I had a few errands to run in town before I could even sit down to read it. Funny how things can change! Emily came down this morning complaining that her back was sore and she was getting shooting pains in it. She was absolutely fine when she went to bed last night and didn't know of anything that might have caused this to happen. I gave her some Calpol and we waited to see how she felt but by the time she was due to go to school she was still in pain and a bit weepy. I kept her off and phoned the Doctors to get an appointment. It seems the muscles in her back were going into spasm but it's not localised pain and the Doctor has recommended giving her Neurofen to keep the discomfort down. She's been told she's not allowed to do dance next week and not allowed to play netball for the next two weeks. I don't know that she's too upset at being told that ;o). This means that I've been home most of the day and I've managed to get my first layout for this week finished. I knew straight away that I wanted to use the photos from my Dad's 79th birthday for the second sketch so that's the one I've done first. For those doing this class that read this blog; I swopped the layout around because of the direction people were facing in the photos. I didn't have the yellow I wanted for this layout so I used a text box with the yellow as the fill colour. I then just added Heidi Swapp chipboard alphabet letters for the title. In the text box for the journaling I just typed as normal with the yellow as the fill colour again. Journaling reads: We invited the local family members round to our house for afternoon tea on Dad/Grandpa's 79th birthday. It was a beautiful sunny day so we sat outside and Mum/Grandma and Claire had fun blowing the bubbles that Debbie had put in Dad's birthday package. Tyler had great fun trying to catch them. It was a relaxing and very enjoyable afternoon. The little circle on the right hand page has the date in it. Hope you like it Dad! Love you lots. xx
