What's Up What's App? Scrapping the Everyday


I spoke of my passion for scrapping the everyday in my last post and realised that I had made another 'everyday' layout for one of my latest DT pieces.

With my daughter living most of the year in Newcastle, we miss her very much.  A way we have gotten around this is via an app called WhatsApp.  This enables you to send photos and messages for free and therefore is very appealing to a cash strapped student!


We only seem to use it for frivolous messages, which for some reason are mostly photographs of what we are eating, as the more important ones are texted to each other, I am not sure why but that is just the way it is.


I need to give you a little background to the WhatsApp message I scrapped.  I work for a charity and their offices are based at a marina, quite a way from normal civilisation.  There are two full time members of staff and one part time working in the office.  On the days when I am the only one in I take my dog to work for company and on the day in question Gracia was revising hard for her exams.


I used Fancy Pants - Trendsetter and the little wooden chevrons from Studio Calico to indicate the flow of the conversation.

 So there we have it, another of our everyday happenings scrapped for us to giggle about at some later date.
