PCC Magazine Mondays Week 69
Our inspiration for Magazine Mondays - Week 69 at Paper Crafter's Corner is a fun cover from New Yorker Magazine. I can see so many ideas here, but the first thing I thought of was all the jig saw puzzles I have done with my Dad over the years. It's been a favorite activity all my life, so much so that I will take any challenge, with any puzzle, any time.
The top picture is Dad and I working a puzzle of the Grand Canyon while traveling through Utah and Arizona in our RV's. The bottom picture is the last puzzle we did together just about two years ago.
My layout is simple, and a good reminder of all the fun we had. I cut the green puzzle background with my silhouette and left it on the cutting mat. After I pulled out a few pieces, I removed the outside border piece and ran tape over all the pieces while they were still secure on the mat. Then I just laid the yellow piece on the green and gently pulled it all away from the Silhouette mat. The random pieces are popped up at different levels and the journaling will be on the second page (that I will make when I find the rest of the pictures taken over the years).
