"First Dance"




I’ll say right away that I LOVE this page. Not only for the memories it evokes, but for all the new techniques I learned and the fun I had creating it.
This page was totally inspired by my favorite scrapper on this website. I copied one of her recent pages shamelessly. :) Along the way I tried a new technique she demonstrated – adding a metallic hint to your page using ink and embossing powder. I embossed the corners of my accent paper (the dark gray) and then I experimented and did it around the large photo on the right side. It turned out so cool! I will definitely do that again.
The other thing I did was more doodling (I’m gonna get in a doodling rut if I’m not careful!) Then I accented everything with vellum heart stickers and silver flowers from ‘Jolee’s by You’. And my wonderful husband patiently listened to what I needed in the way of text, and took the time to format it just so with the computer program I don’t know how to run, so that ‘Our Song’ could look like it belonged on the page. I love the finished product.

Two Weddings and a Book Tour

We headed north on Thursday. It’s my first time driving north since making Alabama my home. It’s crazy how attached we get to this world, isn’t it, considering none of it is really home? I’m leaving “home” to go “home” and always the journey tugs and … Read More...

Bloom {Five Minute Friday}

My garden was two hopeful raised beds with some found dirt piled in and spread around. My hopes of starting a few Zinnia plants were dashed when the cheap packet of seeds I got at Walmart contained nothing but air. Yeah. A few tomato plants, … Read More...
