I chose to use the line, "...with love so sudden and so sweet" to complement these pics of the first meeting between my son and daughter. She was 1-day-old here. Awwwww.
Almost everything on the layout, except for the felt flowers and the letter stickers, are Stampin' Up!, mostly from a really old scrapbooking kit they offered like 4 years ago.
Just gotta make myself use up all those old supplies I've been collecting for years! I think I'd never really used this kit before because it's so simple (not in a bad way) but it totally worked for not only the innocence and simplicity of this moment but also for this week's Sketchy Thursdays 2-page sketch:
Being that today is the 1st of the month I also have the next Category Stories challenge for you. The prompt is "high school crush". Gotta say this one stumped me. I finally arrived here:
It says, "I learned in high schoolNOT to allow popular expectation to CRUSH individual creative expression."
I never really let myself fit into any expected mold in high school. I was an honor student but I changed my style from year to year to MY whim, not necessarily always looking like what the honor students were supposed to look like. My junior year I went what was called "punk"at the time...I think it would be called "EMO" today. I was friends with the honor students, the popular kids, the sporty kids, and the kids on the fringe. I remember my French teacher took one look at me and decided I was obviously a trouble-making idiot the first day. Boy did he get proven wrong! Ha ha ha ha ha!
I just like to do my own thing. And sometimes that means SUPER messy stitching, painting, misting, border punching, masking tape journaling on a declaration of individuality! LOL.
So, has everyone seen Eclipse yet? Yes, I was one of the crazy ones Tuesday evening at the "Twilogy". 8+ hours in a movie theatre commencing in the first showing of Eclipse at 12:01am! But it was so much fun!!!!!! It was so funny when we got out to see the parking lot PACKED and bustling at 2:30am...busier than a hot Friday night. I think every girl in a 10 mile radius was there.
I liked Eclipse. Not loved, just liked. It was better than New Moon, for sure. I liked that there were a few funny moments. But seriously...did Jacob lose some buffness in this one? WTH??? And I think I just may be joining a new team...Team Jasper! He had a larger roll in this one and didn't just look like the weirdo lurking in the background grimacing about the apparent stick up his butt. Love his Southern accent!!!! So, what did you think?
