Day 22: Family Pic

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh - a computer crash Sunday evening... sent me into a one track tail spin.  Sounds like I have lost all my PICTURES.  The good news is that in the past year I have kept the SD cards as backup (I really got tired of buying the CDs.. they cost just as much).  I can find pictures by going through those SD cards... Problem is... I definitely lost some old pictures of Jane.  I also probably have lost some SD cards. YIKES.

As my mother says... no point crying over spilt (spilled?!?) milk.  Thus... onwards and upwards.

...I knew I wanted to do strips of paper as my plan for the day.  I had this idea from a blog somewhere in the past month but I have no idea where it came from or how it even looked at the time. I was just thinking it would be different for me. I did do a weave at one point in January... A layout called 'Sunday'.  If I had my pictures I would show that... its beautiful (in my opinion).  And based on the poem "Sunday's child is full of grace.." It's monogramatic and super simple noting the poem and a black and white pic of my new husband with Jane on our wedding day... Oh, I will try to find it. :) It explains their relationship they share on Sundays... watching soccer.

Found it.  Ignore how the picture was taken... you get the point on the weave.
Materials Used: SU paper collection (retired), SU Whisper White, SU Lots on Board chipboard


However, I also started out with wanting to scrap some pictures of Jane eating a chicken leg and dipping it in gravy.  When I set out to find the matching paper I realized the paper I found was WAY too pretty to use for these photos (MME Bohemian & 29th Street Market collections).  Instead I checked out my "to scrap" list to see what could fit.  And here it was... an oldie but a goodie.

I don't know what's gotten into me lately but I have totally gotten into the flowers... I have a huge basket... I should really have taken a photo of that but I am too lazy to get up... ha. Anyway, I found some perfect flowers to match the perfect MME paper... andddd voila!

Materials Used: MME Bohemian & 29th Street Market collections, Stampinbella 'Family Definition' stamp, SU early espresso embossing powder, SU crumb cake ink for edging, Unknown pearls, SU brushed bronze button, Prima & Recollection flowers.

This is from November 2010!!  I love this picture and think it will really stand the test of time.  It cracks me up!

Have a wonderful day!
Cathy
