(which Ali Edwards word art to use? This photo called for a word scramble:)
It wasn't an easy decision. There were so many negatives running through my head - the logistics of this size is not so simple in NZ. We work in A4 which is narrower and longer than US letter size. Printing larger collages is expensive here and it's much harder and more expensive to source divided plastics and albums this size here.
So why do it? I've had a vision of this portrait orientation and size for ages. I used to scrap this size the last few years I scrapbooked in traditional style. I like the smaller format. I like a design challenge! I decided if I could list 5 good reasons, then I'd go with it. I did, so I am:) The rest will sort itself out as I go.
I'm just annoyed that I didn't bite the bullet at the start of the year. If it doesn't work out, I'll just revert to 12x12.
During this week there was much hype about Tropical Cyclone Lusi hitting NZ Friday night after causing havoc in Vanuatu. We woke up to an amazing sunrise Friday. This was honestly the most amazing sunrise I've ever seen. The reality was so much more dramatic than the photos I took. The sky was on fire. But 'red in the morning, shepherd's warning'... we were worried about what was coming! However, it was all a bit of an anti climax - thankfully. There was damage elsewhere. It was a wild and windy day with some rain, but nothing like we expected.
