That's the question most people want to know about my relationship with Krista. She IS married to my middle son...but when we scrapbook together, it is a friendship as deep as my other friends. And it confuses my daughter to be at a scrapbook event with us (Slick doesn't crop). No subjects are "sacred" when we are scrapping and we talk about it all. So glad that Mike chose someone I like.
So this summer when she, Patty & Miss Sally traveled to Bolingbrook to go to the scrapbook convention in St. Charles, I had an opportunity to take lots of pictures of her. Well, she was taking pics, but she wasn't in them! I've featured one of them in today's blog.
In the forum I frequent (though my DH would call it "stalking" cause I am on there so much. That's a harsh term..I don't mean any harm. I just can't get enough scrapbooking- - and he did move me away from my scrap friends- - so I have on-line friends. It could be soooo much worse!) As I was saying before I interrupted myself...in Creative Scrapbook Divas, I try to finish as many challenges as I can. This one was called 5 Color Copy Cat. All we had to do was copy (not crop lift, COPY) her layout, but change our 5 colors! Well, I woke up at 5:35 this morning with a need to create..and it was next on my list.
I started with a base sheet of Lily:Sweet Spring line from Fancy Pants. I have a coordinating sheet to do 2nd page with, will try to finish it tonight. I found the picture of Krista standing under a tunnel covered with Clematis vines at Fabyan Japanese Garden. I felt the doodled flowers on the paper reminded me of Clematis. I matted the pic with a yellow paper from Cosmo Cricket and an unknown brown. I really wanted to see the daintyness of the flowers...and always need an excuse to use my exacto blade.
So out it came from my holder to trace partially around flowers petals so they would hug the photo.
