how to summarise a fabulous month in NZ

a quiet day for the last day of my holiday and some time to play in PSE to create some summaries

I entered the names of all the people I saw, places I went and things I did into wordle then copied into PSE to create an image I can print like a photo.  (and yes I spotted mis spellings as soon as I deleted the text document!!).

project-life-week-6-1

Then I listed some numbers – I like to count things.  I used the colour picker in PSE to make the font the same colours as in the wordle.

project-life-week-6-2

These will go into my Project Life pockets (when they are available in the UK) along with lots of photos of collected ephemera.

Helena, you could enter that last one for Julie Kirk's Month in Numbers series on her blog. It fits perfectly

Brilliant Helena - have you tried Tagxedo.com - even more fun than Wordle and you can choose your own colour scheme, font mix, and cloud shape!

I absolutely love the way you've summarised your month / trip... it looks awesome, I am far too technically inept to do something so lovely. Hope you will join in on next month's MIN X
