Sometimes you feel like things are going to be okay!
So the other night my sister and I and my two girls watched one of my favourite movies "Fried Green Tomato's" and I was thinking to myself about the importance of a great friendship. My sister and I have that, we are best of friends and would do anything for each other. Fortunately our husbands are great friends too so it makes for fun times together. Well, I remember thinking I hope my two girls will grow up to be as close as my sister and I are. Sometimes with the little tiff's here and there you have to wonder. But then a couple of nights ago Chloe came into our room and said she had a bad headache. Well, I see my youngest, Meagan scamper off while I get Chloe some Tylinol. A little while later Chloe came in to show me this sweet card Meagan quickly made up for her. Here is the inside of the card (the thingy on the right side is a thermometer LOL!).....
I was so impressed and touched by Meagan's thoughtfulness, other than the word 'hert' (hurt) she did really well on the spelling too! It was one of those moments as a mother you think that everything is right with the world, your two children love each other and your heart is happy.
I made up the above page as a memory of this moment (I made a little pocket at the back of the l/o to put the card into as a little keepsake)
As for products on the page I used this wonderful Dusty Attic bracket Frame (this comes in a large sheet with various sizes of the same bracket frame, the one I used above is the largest) I tried a crackle paint on this frame that totally did not work out like I expected it to, it did more of a beading on the white paint than a crackle look. I also used a section of one of the Dusty Attic iron fences on this l/o ....for the finish I simply inked it with some brown pigment ink and then dabbed on some Tim Holtz Distress Stickles in 'Antique Bronze' ....I liked the finish it gave, kind of like a rusted look, here is a close-up pic....
And finally I wanted to say I recently picked up this paper pack at Michaels that I've been wanting to get called 'Blossomwood' by K&Company, one of my dear friends Teresa Manchez known at Catz at sb.com told me about these papers when I admired the pussywillow paper I saw on one of her l/o's (thanks Teresa!) I just love all the papers in this paper pad!! so cute, can't wait to do more with them! The little birds are stickers that coordinate with this collection and the letter stickers are more of my favourites from Webster's Pages. Here's a couple of close-up peeks at the rest of the page...
Well, I've pretty much used up most of my Dusty Attic stash but I hear that a wonderful package with all of the new Dusty Attic goodies are on their way to me from Australia!! Can't wait to see what kind of pretties they are coming out with next!
Thanks for having a peek!!
