I made another page for Monica's book. If you know Monica's story, skip ahead. If not, read on. Monica is my best friend's daughter. Her 23-year-old husband just died in July after a 6-year battle with bone cancer. Monica and James have thousands of photos on their Facebook pages, and I've been grabbing them from there to make Monica a book so she'll remember the many happy memories in their short life together.
I had overcast skies, so sorry that my picture isn't that great. I used a lot of scraps that were on my scrap table leftover from some previous layouts to make my page.
Here are some details. My background paper is by My Mind's Eye. That striped red paper is really old 7 Gypsies. I think the number paper might also be 7 Gypsies. Not 100% sure because I only have bits and pieces of it--this was a little scrap that was sitting on my desk. The little monsters are from Sassafras Lass. How I love those little monsters, and I've been so sad because my supply of them has been dwindling and they no longer make the paper. I looked and looked for that paper and found it somewhere, but you had to buy the whole paper pad. I finally bit the bullet and ordered it and it came in the mail the other day.
Thanks, Tracee, for the idea of adding some pennants to my twine. I put them on a little haphazardly to emphasize the playful feeling I was going for. The 25cent paper is also by Sassafras Lass, as are the arrows. You can see I used BasicGrey paper, along with a Hambly transparency (these were also scraps sitting on my desk.
The red circles are from a Sassafras Lass paper. The game spinner is by Tim Holtz. The vellum were scraps from my desk--a few had stars punched out of them from the last layout I made for Creative Scrappers.
That stamp is one of those word ones that have the handle that twists and new words appear. I just stamped the same word several times. Thanks, Tracee, again, for the suggestion of tucking some stars behind the stitched-on vellum. These are wood veneer stars by Studion Calico.
Here's another goofy Sass monster. The bingo card is Jenni Bowlin. The red polka dots are by Jillibean Soup. I thought that blue vellum was perfect to go with the blue in the Vegas sign.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
