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 thought these pictures of Monica and James are so cute. Thanks to my good friend Tracee Provis for helping me figure out the title. I went pretty literal with the sketch.
Here are some details.I love these tiny letters by Lily Bee. So cute! The little scallopy bit is from a pack of old Doodlebug Frills.
The yellow polka dot paper is by My Mind's Eye. Polka dots make me happy. :) The chipboard pieces are by Sassafras Lass. I miss Sass.
I've been trying to use vellum lately. I have SO darn much of that stuff from when it was popular back in the day. I rescued an old Pebbles Dymo-style sticker from my stash.
The paper is "vintage" 7 Gypsies. One of my all-time favorite papers. It's so old that it's 8.5 x 11. I only have a couple of sheets of this left. The little metal word bit is also old, by K&Co, Life's Journey collection.
I loved seeing how the rest of the design team interpreted this sketch--so many creative things to do with this sketch. Go see here! I hope you'll play along with us--a prize from Moments of Tranquility is up for grabs!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
