This week I've done some things a little differently.

WEEK 7
First of all, on this page, I decided to go with an all black cardstock base, and cut a 12x12 to match the inserts of the page.
I've also rounded the corners of each piece too :biggrin: (Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper)
Its a great idea to try tie a couple of photos in different inserts together by extending a piece of paper (in this case, the ones I've used have a border around them) under the first photo - to the next photo which you can see below with Hannah's award night going vertically, and Paige's camp photos going across horizontally. This can help separate two different subjects on one page :wink:
The alpha is a diecut - and I love these as it can be any colour, any amount, any time!

( I've actually photographed the pieces on top of the insert to avoid the reflection of the plastic and it does look a little more evenly placed together once in the inserts)

Black Cardstock
Prima Printery Page Four Pattern Paper
Tim Holtz Chip Block Alpha Die
Stazon Jet Black Ink
Black Gel Pen
Red String

WEEK 8
This one consists of two 6x6 inserts and three 6x4 portrait inserts.
Again, I've used a sheet of 12x12 paper, though patterned this time, and rounded the corners. The photos have been numbered to show continuity and the progress of the demolition of my old kitchen when we moved into the new house. It was a fun page to do and a record now of how my kitchen used to look with a 'tag' like effect to highlight the photos.

I love all the different ways you are putting these together Mandy but really really love that idea of placing the strip of paper across the two cards to join an event within the one week - very cool
