Well, I had all the paper we could possibly need, so as soon as we got back to my place, I got it all out and ready to play with! We made quite a mess, actually, choosing from all the various colors and patterns; but the project was fun and very easy to do. Dear Daughter was quicker than I was, putting one together.. She just knows what she wants right away, and I admit that I tend to fuss a little more; but here's what we put together...
This was cute of Dear Daughter, I thought, but it's NOT the best picture of me, as it was so-ooooo hot and humid, and my hair was going limp, and I kept wiping my makeup off.. (I have no air conditioning... just fans that weren't helping much that day.).... Still, I'm feeling brave enough to post this, because it's more a picture I love for the memory, than for how I looked or didn't look that day. Now that my baby girl is all grown and married now, it was so nice we could spend this kind of time together!
If you happen to notice, compared to the original in the tutorial, we only have six window frames instead of the seven or eight suggested. We just thought five windows would cover Monday through Friday, and that we would designate the last window/frame for "the weekend".
Now later, as I was deciding where to hang my finished project, I thought, "Oh no! My papers all match my kitchen nice and pretty, but they may be too dark to see anything written on them!" So I'm actually still working on mine. Here you see I added a smaller piece of white cardstock on the blue windows of the frame, and they now have a matted look about them.
I'm wondering if I may have to do the same with the red windows. Maybe they're o.k. the way they are... Whatever, the case, I'm very happy with how it's come out, and Dear Daughter already wants to make a second one!
