New Love ....



I did this one pager when I went to Delbure and the Fawn Meadows Bed and Breakfast with some friends last April. The picture was taken in our neighbourhood of Kincora in August 2007, just before our wedding in September. The layout was actually for Christy's Scrapbook 201 class that she taught in April/May. The challenge was to create a layout starting with a blank sheet of cardstock. I choose to go with white glossy and sponged on some Tim Holtz distress inks (tattered straw, aged burgandy) The chipboard was embossed with distress embossing powder than sanded. Chipboard is by RiffRaff Designs out of Edmonton. The letters are from American Crafts Thickers, they are chipboard letters that I sanded over. The flower is an old one I have from Prima with a brown curdory button by Imaginasce.

I spent a week in Saskatchewan (Nov 11-18), I went to visit my family as it seemed Ian was going to be away still and I didn't want to spend my birthday alone. However, on Friday night about 10:30pm - Ian appeared at my Mom's. I thought it was just my Mom and StepDad coming home from friends but when I turned around there was my husband staring back at me. I was shocked and then in tears I was so happy to see him. Unfortuanly, he was only with us for 40 hours then was back on a plane to Yellowknife to catch a charter back to site in Wrigley on Monday morning. Regardless, it was awesome to see him. He thinks he should be back out on the charter on Monday so hopefully at home on Tuesday until at least January sometime. He is going to take a couple weeks off to spend with us and even send me off to scrapbook in Delburne again with the Scrapbook Pantry staff ....... I'll miss Hailey but after having my husband home only abut 8 days in total since Sept 25th I know I need the break. I'm glad I have a husband willing to give me the break.
