My goal the last two years has been to use every stamp set I purchase. I'm behind or late. This layout features Close to My Heart's June Stamp of the Month: A Flowering Bunch. To date, I have only three or four stamp sets I have have not used this year. Yeah!!!
I met two of my college friends last summer in Kirkland, WA. We've been friends for over 30 years! I didn't take my camera and so the only way to record the event was with my iPhone. I love my iPhone but it just doesn't do the crisp, clear photos that my little camera does and don't get me started on the photography features. I think 30 years is significant in a human life, so blurred, grainy, fuzzy photos or not, I decided to scrap them. I know this wouldn't win any contest but that isn't the point. These are long time friends and a testimony to my life (everyone is always saying we should scrap about ourselves, right?) so here it is. What I lacked in photo skills or equipment, I really, really tried in color and time building this layout. It took four days to create. And, still not stellar but loved and lovingly put together. It tells a story. It tells about me. It tells about time: bright and trendy colors/art to show off friends.
So, until the next my next summer project............I'm signing off.
