It only took 15 months, but my scrapping mojo is back! (insert happy dance here)
I did this page last week. This is my best friend Debbie and me. The photo was taken last January after we spent an afternoon together at her house. We've been friends since high school. I brought over a box of old photos and notes she wrote me way back then. We laughed until we cried - it was so much fun! We live 45 minutes away from each other these days. We're busy with work, kids, family, etc. so we only get together a few times a year. Now that we've caught up to technology (somewhat - she's still not online!), we text regularly to stay in touch.
As I was browsing my files to upload this, I realized I made a digital page with this photo earlier this year. I like this one much better. :) Now that I've purged quite a bit of my scrap supplies, I only buy paper and embellishments for the photos I intend to scrap. Everything on this page except the pink papers and the button is brand new.
The design was lifted from this layout out of Scrapbooks, Etc. June 2010, page 24, by Shannon Zickel. Not only am I behind in my scrapping, I'm behind in my reading too! I have a year's worth of Scrapbooks, Etc. magazines still in the plastic, just waiting to be read. My subscription ran out this month but I don't even have to renew! hehe
BTW, I have a bone to pick with Scrapbooks, Etc. I searched the magazine for the flower pattern (at least a petal) and it was nowhere to be found. I had to create my own pattern by drawing a petal freehand. Normally I don't mind doing that but getting the size right was a challenge.
