Project 52: Week 44


Project 52: Week 44

Here's my Week 44. Just about caught up! :)
Journaling reads:
"Sunday - lots of hurricane talk. GIrone's came for pizza & I made cabbage salad... Monday Hurricane Sandy hit NJ & our power went out early afternoon. It got cold pretty fast & no electric = no hot water or stove. Tuesday morning Karen & Debbie brought a carafe of boiled water & scrambled eggs! Encouraging to see our power lines being fixed - THANKS PA! But, sadly, no power... Wednesday walked to Girones to cook for mom. Later to Terry's overnight for warmth, a L - O - N - G adventurous drive. But, it's a safe, warm feeling having good friends & family. Halloween cancelled again... Late Thursday our power came on & Marc helped us inside. Amazing to see all the devastation but thankfully we were safe & ok... Saturday - SG chatted ALL DAY for NSD. Did some layouts, but missed a few chats - the week caught up with me & even computer-chatting was tiring..."
For this layout I used:
BMU Autumn Jewel Collection Biggie
ABR SS Embellishment Templates: Stack Them 4
LD Aloha Font
ASO SS Styles: Glitter Glows 6401



    These two pages together are going to be so pretty...! Hard to imagine so much devastation and loss against such a pretty background... So scary to see the damage caused in your area and good to know you are safe and well... Love seeing your local photos of Sandy and the Stay Strong Jersey sign, it makes the page more personal... Is that Obama I can see? It looks like him walking on that beach/shore?? Hard for us to imagine how bad it must have been there for Halloween to be cancelled... the pumpkin man sure looks glum... :-( These lovely autumn toned pages will stand out in your book :-)
    Wow, its good to SB the good, bad and the ugly!
    I hope to do something like this for next year! Great job on getting these pages of your weeks done, Marilyn! Its a great slice of your life...I enjoy looking at them.
    I like that you've included photos of the newspapers here, Marilyn - what devastation! I like your new format too and the arrangement of your photos - you make a busy page look so interesting! I enjoyed reading your journaling - sad though it may be, it was very well written and helpful to understand what you must have been going through. Excellent page!
    Sorry to hear you lost power, but so glad to hear you and yours are all OK. The newspapers really are a nice touch. The simple design looks great - I love the ribbon with one bead & the sparkly frame.
    I like the way you're able to get so many photos on a page as well as the journaling. The way you clustered the photos and balanced it with the journaling makes it not feel like it's cluttered at all, but it works really well. Great layout!
    It sure was an adventuresome week! I'm glad you all survived! I love the design and colors of your page, the wonderful photos, and the fascinating journaling.
    Marilyn, my heart is with you! You have captured everything so well, and it is still a pretty page. It makes me tired to think of how hard things must be!
    What an ordeal. You did a great job documenting it!
    I really like how you did the week in review....everything was put together nicely!!
    Lovely page and great journaling for a pretty terrible week, with the unwanted arrival of Sandy. I like all the bright colors and multitude of photos.
