Do you ever get a "bright idea" that turns out to be not so bright? You guessed it...that was me today!
I have posted before about how I have been working on a Wedding Album. Although we already gave the main gift at the wedding, I plan to give this album to the bride and groom. We will deliver it, the next time we are over in England. They are a lovely young couple and DH and our oldest daughter attended the wedding. I was unable to go as my doctor advised travelling that far, till after my surgery.
The bride is a card maker and kindly sent back a Cd of the photos. I have finished over 20 pages now and decided to photograph the layouts before I placed them in the album. Yes, here comes the sad part.
I have such a glare problem with the overhead lights in my room, that I have been duct taping a new floor mat to the cupboard doors. It is a flat mat with no sheen. I taped the layout to the mat, took the picture and went to download the memory card. While waiting for that process, I got up to put a few bits and bobs away, carrying a diet coke in my hand. I bet you imagine the next part...
As I walked by my precious layout, the mat fell off the cupboards, knocking the diet coke all over the back of the layout!!! EEEK!!!!!
I quickly pulled the photo off the rippled PP, but sadly the card stock mat is rippled too and the layout paper is most likely toast. I was trying to get the photo off as quickly as possible and in that process, tore the PP background too.
I have little bits of the layout all over my ironing board...trying to dry them out. Hopefully I can salvage the actual photo.
Here it is, before the mishap...
