It's time to share another spread of those in between moments in the scrapbook album. This page is from the beginning of October and uses Becky Higgins Project Life Design A Protector.
All photos were taken with my cell phone, along with a screenshot of a news article. The embellishments and most of the cards came from Studio Calico kits.
For the start of October, I wanted to include the Government Shutdown. I added the dates to a funny Studio Calico journal card and placed it alongside an article from the first day. I also included my Facebook status from that day. Always thinking about future viewers of the album, I include any major news items and my reaction to them or how it impacted my day to day routine.
On the opposite side of the spread, I included pictures and thoughts from my job. I recently found this quote on Humans of New York, and it fit perfectly with the theme. The ribbon was from the most recent Blue Note Scrapbook Kit. I created a ruffle and sewed a single line through the ribbon, attaching it to the journaling card.
