Laziness = Success in Julia World

This LO is a direct result of my being lazy. I know, if you're a regular visitor you will be unsurprised, procrastination and lazy crafting are two skills of mine, and I have a lot of skills! Back to the point (you wish) - this is another photo that's 20 something years old (gasp - from the eighties - you may recall this post and the LO I did with old-ish pictures). It is the fourth picture from one occasion, and one that didn't fit with the story that the other three pictures tell. So because I'm too lazy to tidy up properly, it became easier to use it on a LO than put it away in the proper place, which by now has been returned to the archive section of the house. And actually, I'm quite glad it got to that point - I like it. Of course I love the subject matter, for Penny & Bill are my beloved parents. Beyond that, I love that it actually only took me about 10 minutes to come up with and another 10 or so to cut out, stick on and journal, which is actually a minor miracle for me. Mostly though, I love it because the dress that my dear Mama is wearing in the picture gave me a light bulb moment and meant that I was able to use some of the Citronella papers from the pad that I bought without having a single need or reason to have. So there you see - a genuinely good reason for scrapping old photos and even better, a justification for downright greedy stash buying. Any probs that need my logic - you pass 'em by this blog and I'll see how I can er, bend them to fit your requirement!

This is a beautiful way to use this paper ...that was avery fast LO.

Carmen said...

Very fast indeed. I'm impressed! I love the way you've done the journalling - the date of the photo and then the date of the journalling. Good idea :)

Who needs justification to buy more stash :) I just tell OH that you never know when this sheet of paper or that embellie will be needed and that's enough to make me buy it ;) Fab work on the quickie LO by the way! is that tons and tons of journaling writen on the left hand side? or printed PP?

Love the journalling on the side and the punch you have used, I think I may need to get that one. Love your logic bending abilities too.x

That paper is perfect for that photo-but of course-that's why you bought it isnn't it? (it's just that you didn't know it at the time!!)
