Western Romance

I had a lot of fun working with this line by Webster's Pages the other day.  I had these photos of Théa from this summer, and when I saw this paper I knew they would be a perfect match.  It had been so long since I scrapped however, that this page took me a ridiculously long time to finish, and it's not even 'all that'.  Does that happen to you too?  It's funny, but when I'm away from it for a week or so I take forever to find my groove again.

I only picked up a few sheets of this paper, but after finishing this layout I still had enough left to complete another layout, so I completed this one of my mother in law.

I submitted this one for Challenge number 9 over at My Scrapbook Nook, to use at least 10 words as a title.
For Christmas, my sister-in-law and her family thought it would be funny to prank my mother-in-law.  They gave her a mouse in a jar, wrapped in a pretty Christmas bag.  This woman hates mice with a passion, but you'd never know it by looking at this photo.  Rather than screaming her head off, she simply laughed about it.  She couldn't stop laughing actually, which of course we know is really a sign of nervousness.  She was such a good sport about it though.  I bet she was quite the prankster as a  young person.  This is probably my favorite photo of her, candid, genuine, and a glimpse into her fun and carefree side.

The official DT list for Creative Scrappers will be revealed today.  I haven't heard from Kristine, so I doubt I'll be seeing my name on that list. I feel completely at peace about it though.  That's a nice change from the nerves, and anxiety I usually feel.  I really hope, that even if I don't, one of my friends makes the team.  I know so many talented scrappers, that it always makes me happy to see them do well.

I'm off to a crop tonight.  Should be interesting, as I haven't got any photos ready to go, nor do I know what I'll be scrapping.  My Nook February kit finally arrived, though, so I'm really hoping to dig into that.  I'm really looking forward to spending time with my sweet scrappy bud, and her girlfriends.  If you're looking for a scrappy project or two this weekend there's always Challenge #13 over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles, or the New Year Crop at My Scrapbook Nook.

Have a great weekend friends, and thanks for stopping by.
