Design Your Life Week Eight - Assignment One

We're still on emphasis this week and we're still on American letter size. I have to say, much as I hate to admit it, it's growing on me. I'm liking this format more and more. I think I'm going to have to invest in an album to store some layouts at this size. Anyway, being stuck for photos, I dug out an old album. In fact, it's the first holiday Nick & I had together. Boy we both looked young then! So for the first layout, I chose this lovely photo showing Nick having a fag and reading his book. Yup, a pretty normal activity on holiday. Perhaps not so normal is lying lemgthways on a picnic table bench, face down. You can see how and why we hooked up :D It's that streak that says "I don't care what everyone else does, this is what I do". And look at that hat, bless him, he tries but he doesn't suit them. And that rucsac! We still have that old thing. He'll be buried with it (along with his label maker :D)

Paul, this is just lovely! What a grest idea to enlarge bits of the big photo for the smaller ones - it all works so well together. And one of the first things that struck me was - wow, how colourful! Paul hasn't used the darker smudgy colour palette here (not that there's anything wrong with that!), but it has such a clean, fresh look to it... Perhaps the brightness of that green T-shirt is having a subliminal effect! xxx alexa
