I love documenting the current technology in our lives. Maybe because I can remember life without a microwave, a computer, or a cell phone, these advances fascinate me. I didn't think to take photos of the cutting edge stuff back then, but I try to keep up now. A series of 3 similar photos tells the story of getting our iPhones.

I like to vary the size, color and dimension on longer titles to emphasize words and provide interest. Thickers + stickers = a winning combination!
My first attempt at using Glossy Accents. Guess I'm a little slow to try new techniques. The shine it gave to the sticker mimics the red shine on my title letters.
I also tried a bit of hand stitching to look like dotted journaling lines and help the paper strips stand out a bit. Not sure this was entirely successful, but it wasn't a total miss, either. Journaling reads: "Phil and I got up at 2:30 a.m. to order iPhones for all of us, and Andrew & Jennifer made a special trip to claim theirs. We spent the weekend sharing apps, downloading games and customizing our phones."
At the beginning of the year, I made this page about my iPod. But that's not the end of it. I've recently embraced a return to some old technology, which will be the subject of my Wednesday post. Hope you'll come back for that!
