Page one of my entry for JANVSBNE - Pale Plum is the background and I stamped swirl stamps with Lavender Lace ink and then accented the stamps with white gel pen... there is faux stitching around all the patterned paper (the color from the patterned paper bled into the ink, so that's kind of a bummer but it still looks ok...) The stickers are from Creative Imaginations - there are buttons accenting the photo and then a faux button on page 2 - the journaling is a little long so I needed a bigger space to tell the whole story, but otherwise it's pretty true to the sketch - thanks for looking! Here is the journaling:
It was my fault – I know that. Once again, failure to plan an event did me in! Sometimes my “flying by the seat of my pants” lifestyle just doesn’t cut it! Case in point – Easter, 2006. We’re in the mall. The Easter Bunny is waiting. The dress is perfect, the suit so sweet. We have, however, no shoes. We go to Penney’s and Eureka! They’re having a sale, buy one, get one free! I immediately find the perfect pair for Alyssa, stylin’ little white heals with butterfly clasps. We spend the next 50 minutes looking for the “free” pair. Of course, the logical choice is to get a pair of dress shoes for Josh, but no matter which style I pick his size is not available. I decide to get a second pair for Alyssa, but again, size is a problem. Eventually I pick another pair of sneakers for Josh – useless for the pictures and he already has a pair, but hey, they’re free! I stand in line another twenty minutes to buy them, only to find out that the initial pair we picked was not eligible for the buy one, get on free sale! Gggrrr.. Ok, I buy her pair and head to a Payless to buy a fast pair for Josh. By this time it is well past lunch time and the natives are getting restless. I buy the first pair I see, ugly little shoes that will never be worn again. We fly down the escalator and wait in line to see the bunny. Josh picks the Easter Bunny’s flowers while we are waiting in line and leaves a little petal trail behind us, but I don’t care. All I want is to get this picture and then change the kids’ clothes so we can eat! Finally the moment comes and the kids sit with the bunny and the photographer snaps the picture and all is well! Well, not exactly. It wasn’t until we got home that I noticed it. In the picture, you can’t see the shoes. Just another day in the life..
