So, in case you've been living under a rock (or you don't live stateside), there's a crazy blizzard sweeping the nation!
By tomorrow, we're supposed to get at least a foot of snow under blizzard conditions. I'm pretty sure I was a smallish child last time we got that much snow all at once. Of course, there's already 6 or 8 inches on the ground, so...it's gonna look pretty awesome around here! It's times like these when I'm grateful that Andrew and I both work in snow-day-friendly jobs!
But that's neither here nor there. How about another layout instead? On Thanksgiving this year, I did a quick photo shoot with my cousins....
This was the best photo, and I think it is really sweet! These two are 19 and 12, and they couldn't be more different. It's hard to get them to sit next to each other, much less pose for photos! If you click on the photo, it might be big enough to see the journalling and smaller photo -- I ended up with lots of photos depicting the torment that only a 12-year-old can provide. I should be happy that one turned out well!
I used some BG Wander here, along with a bunch of bits and bobs from my stash. The letters that spell "Sweet" are white, but they didn't stand out enough, so I inked 'em with some chalk ink:
Much more visible! Plus, the white edges look kinda cool irl. I also actually used a couple of eyelets, which doesn't happen too often:
Used 'em to tie on a little tag up in the corner. I think I'll use that little lightbulb of an idea again.
I'll have a few more cousin-themed layouts coming up -- we've had lots of quality family time of late, which equals more family photos to scrap!
Off to prepare for the Groundhog Day blizzard of 2011. How's the weather where you are?
