My Shoes & Stuff

September 29, 2006

Amy challenged her CT to a fun AAM page for our introductions. All About our Shoes!! I had fun with this one, thanks Amy for the inspiration! I really liked seeing everyone else’s shoes too, it seems we all like a little comfort 😉

Anyone notice my last two layouts are monochromatic? I don’t do that very often. Hmm, scrappers block, different styles, I might be on the verge of another scrap-through. That’d be cool!

I’ve been thinking I should blog about this for a couple days, but never got around to it. Did everyone see the awesome kit by doodle queen Taran Conyers of TK Whimsy and Co. and Studio Taran at SBG? I just love the story behind this kit, you have to go and read it, I think my JT and her Owen might just be kindered spirits, or maybe related sprites?

Made me wanna clap out loud and yell “I believe in Faeries! Don’t you?”. Think I’ll go watch a little Peter Pan now, LOL!! Anyway, I can’t wait to use this kit, I’ll be taking lots of fairy photos!!

What I like about this is Owen not only saw a fairy, he saw a sunflower fairy. I love sunflowers, I love that signify the late summer. My favorite time of year. I love that they are bright and yellow. When I came out of a deep depression in high school, I wanted to redecorate, and I went and painted my room yellow and blue and brown and added sunflowers to everything, it was quite dramatic, but it worked for me. So yeah, I think I was just a little excited to see this!

A big thanks to Owen and his mom Taran for such a creative kit!!

I really should be trying to kick out a couple more layouts, but I think I’m going to take the night off. Since I didn’t get a layout done for the big Birthday Bash, I’ll post one more time as a reminder.

Saturday Morning, 10 am EST, http://www.yourfavoritepair.com chat room, Dani’s Birthday Bash, check out the crop kit!birthdaybash_preview.jpg

    Love the shoe layout. I can’t stand anything between my toes, and I much prefer shoes that give firm, snug support, and I never wear heels unless I’m really dressed up, so I don’t have anything at all like any of those, but I can totally picture you wearing them. 🙂

    The sunflower story is so sweet. 🙂

    Drat, looks like I missed the crop. I tried to find something the other day that said when it was going to be, but I guess I was looking in the wrong places.:-b
