…finally – I was beginning to think that creative energy to make another scrapbook page had deserted me. I made one layout in June and this one in August.
journaling reads “a favorite photo – May 22, 2007 – debut of the O.C. Season 4 on dvd – and when I saw this quote on a magnet at Harry’s, the layout just clicked!”
So for the past 3-4 weeks, I’ve had a block about this next one. I had the 5×7 two-of-us photo from Sara’s first night back after camp. Lots of stars in the background. I found a great star/smile/love quote. And then this patterned “starburst” paper when we visited Mt Dora back in July. And I matched up yellows and purples from my cardstock and punched stars. But I couldn’t ever get it much past that.
So this afternoon I sat down with some of the new papers and ribbons from Friday’s trip to Bonnie’s, and it came together. I even punched holes in my photo to get the ribbon detail (I think that’s the first time I’ve ever “altered” a real photo!). And used my new sharpie gold pen – love how it shows up on the dark paper. And chipboard stars with gold PearlEx powder, then Crystal Effects.
“If I had a star for every time you made me smile, I would be holding the night sky in my hand.”
