Silly You...

I finished my Lotus Paperie challenge layout tonight! The challenge this week is to scrap your crappy/blurry photos. What a great challenge! I had this pic of daughter Becca and her friend Nakole that I absolutely love, and it gave me the perfect opportunity to do something fun with it! Here's how it turned out...
I used the June Studio Calico kit, plus black dymo labeling, white thickers (my all-time fave style), Black Jenni Bowlin paper and a Tim Holtz "giggle" ticket.

The journaling reads: "Even tho this photo is blurry, I love it because it captures your friendship so well. Always having fun and laughing together."

Becky Higgins has a cool thing on her blog today. It's a free download template for making a book of your life story. It's a "fill-in-the-blank" style worksheet, so I can imagine you could either leave it just like it is or decorate it up as much as you want. There's a version for a teenager and one for an adult. Check it out here.

That's it for today, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share! I wish you a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
