Mobile phone pic too small?

No problem! You can always 'go large' with the design of the page instead.

As so often happens, perfect photo opportunities occur when the good camera is too far away and you know the moment will pass all too quickly. That's when I tend to whip out the mobile phone and snap away with fingers crossed. I know the picture will be low res and if I'm lucky, in focus as well so it can still be used.

This page shows one of those moments. DH had just bought a new iPhone and downloaded an interactive story book for DGS to play with. The looks on the faces show how successful the whole idea was.

I still have to add some story to this page but as you can see, I have lots of room left. Maybe up the top there perhaps?

I used DigiScrap Princess' new kit Annie's Rain for the page. It's available at Sum Scrapper now. The font is PalaceScript MT.

I have been having a lot of fun putting together elements and papers with a strong Australian theme that I hope will be used by folks who travel about our great country and then want to put together a travel album with all their pictures. As I have heaps of dusty pics in travel folders myself, I am also designing and developing things for me too. I'm hoping that if it works for me then it'll work for someone else as well.

Here is one of our travel pics taken just out of Kalgoorlie at the old bush two-up ring, now abandoned and falling into ruin. There is corrugated iron everywhere and that inspired me to create a corrugated iron background for my page.

The title, Come in Spinner, comes from the call made at the two-up as the person in the middle tossed the two pennies in the air. Bets were laid on how the coins would fall and fortunes were made and lost at the ring. Conditions there were never luxurious. The little picture at the bottom left is of a semi-circle of corrogated iron painted white with the sign 'LADIES' painted on it.

If you like the background, you can download it here.

If you do download, a little ‘love’ in the form of a note or comment would be appreciated.
