I’ve been poking around trying to get myself motivated to start doing more scrapping again…SO many photos and letters from our heroes need to make it into a book! Agh. With winter CHA feeling like it’s around the corner – and us getting a booth there!!! – I thought getting some fun pages added would be great. And replacing a few of the yukky ones I’ve done would be good too!? So…I checked out the sketch on the Studio Calico blog:
My layout leaves a lot to be desired…it’s been a long time since I worked large-format! So this is just a warmup. It does look better in real life than here, but it’s still…well. Whatever. 🙂 I did use TWINE, though, STD girlies! The photo I scrapped is me with little Miss Lainey; she and her soldier dad and mom and brother came to haul me and boxes to the post office post-surgery earlier this spring…this was my first time with no scooter and I was one happy camper. And Lainey was so proud she could carry that box! I sent the photo to a bunch of our contacts in my notes to them, and the handwritten note is from a reply received from Afghanistan: “Also tell Lainey I think she is super-strong for carrying that big box all by herself.” He’s a great guy who loves writing to his kids, and I think that photo really warmed his heart. So….girl-strong is the title on this one. Even if it’s crookedy. 🙂
And since I had to compensate for the scrappy page by doing something better, I used the sketch for a card too. Sorta. But in any case, I clearly am more comfortable in an A2!
Papers used are from my Studio Calico kits, mostly. Have I said lately how much I love them??
