I made both of these LOs this past Saturday in honor of National Scrapbook Day! I was going to submit both of these to Scrapbook Challenges (http://www.scrapbookchallenges.com/), but missed the deadline for the first sketch. The first LO (based on Sketch 292) is of Caroline and Handsome Ransom. She won 3 Second Place ribbons at Equine Country USA in Jacksonville, NC on April 14, 2012. The paper is K&Company Urban Rhapsody; the barn & bigger horse I fussy cut out of Recollections Barnyard 12x12 open stock paper from Michaels; the horse, fence, rock, and grass are Recollections Dimensional Stickers; the title- "special kid" is MME 29th Street Market Bright "Original" Words; the tag is from K&Company Cut N Paste Tag Pad; the Celebrate sticker is from Karen Foster Designs Blow Out the Candles Cardstock Stickers; and the circle & both picture mats are also K&Company Urban Rhapsody.
The second LO is based on Sketch 293 and is a picture of me and Veronica when we met in New Bern Mall. The paper is also K&Company Urban Rhapsody; the blue flowers are Studio G Paper Flowers embellished with Tim Holtz Stickles Green & Gold; the pic mats & strips at the bottom are all K&Company (some scraps from Niki); the journaling tag is from K&Company Cut N Paste Tag Pad and states that "Veronica & I met in person for the first time on April 24, 2012, after meeting online in Cafe Jesus in 2000. She was on her honeymoon with Bill in eastern NC & came to New Bern Mall to meet me on their way to Washington!" The ribbon is Bobbin Ribbon; the brad is one of 12 We R Memory Keepers Fabric Brads Friends Furever; & the title quote is from DCWV Color Vellum Quotes Stack and states "Friendship is a heart-flooding feeling that can happen to any two people who are caught up in the act of being themselves, together."- Letty Cottin Pogrebin. The picture was taken in from of Java Junction in New Bern Mall. TFL! I have one more LO to upload in another post. :)
