Jack & Abby Layouts
The first one is growing on me but i'm super happy with the frames in the second pic. I think it took about 30 min. to put it together just because I had to search for pics that grouped well. Elsie took the two larger ones back in Oct. '06. I simply cut out coordinating papers for the picture backings and after attaching the pics, adhered them to the back of the chipboard frames. I added chipboard buttons and epoxy stickers for dimension and taped my ribbon onto the back. So simple. You should try it.
Making plans for a trip to Hollywood and Pasadena for next week to see Elsie, Emma and the Farquhars. I mentioned that Danielle is prego with their second awhile back. She's due around Thanksgiving so we're hoping to spend some time with them before they move back into the sleep deprivation stage of life! We're so excited for them. Danielle says Addison is a kicker.
I'll also get to meet Elsie & Emma's grandma for the first time. If its the same one I'm thinking of, I've stayed the weekend in her sah-weet cabin in the country. We all hosted an RVA art weekend a few years back. We did classes on altering your clothing, art journaling, painting, and topped it off with our own little fashion show.
On our first night there, we heard a knock on the door. We were really hesitant to answer since we weren't expecting anyone and we were out in the middle of nowhere. Finally, we all croweded around the door and opened it. There was a man in camo with dirt all over his face standing on the porch. He wanted to follow a deer that he had been tracking onto their property. I can't remember who did the talking but it was either Elsie or Emma who forcefully told him to shove off and not come back or we'd call the police. We spent the next 30 minutes recounting the scenario and then letting our imaginations create all kinds of scary endings. It was like telling ghost stories at a slumber party! HA!
Anyone have any scary stories to share?
