I've Been Busy! Pencil Lines and 2 Sketches 4 You

So my first project to show you is a layout that I had started AGES ago, but never seemed to finish.  I had bits and pieces and knew kind of how I wanted it to look.  As I was reading over at Pencil Lines, I saw a sketch that I knew would be perfect to help me finish it off.  Sketch #196.

These are the girls I met in university, and we lived together for the first year in residence, the second year, I moved off campus and lived with 4 guys from church while they stayed in residence, and in the last 2 years of school, I lived with these awesome girls!  Six of us in one house, and no fights!  No smoking, no drugs, etc...We did drink some, but we were always so responsible and we all had a healthy respect for ourselves and each other.

I used a lot of paint and splats of alcohol ink and glimmer mist.

The metal letters came in a kit from Bad Girls a while back, and this is my first time using them.  I think they look sharp (made by We R Memory Keepers)!  Do you see my maiden name there???  MINION.  It is a very unique last name, it;s not French either, but I do much prefer LANGDON. 

And last but not least, it has been a while since I made a card, so I decided to see what Laura and Kazan had going on over at 2 Sketches 4 You.  Below is a card made using Sketch #57.  I stamped a text background from UNITY Stamp Co, and used a Tattered Angels frame to showcase my letter "c" which can either stand for Carol (my Step-Mom) or Cheryl, my Mother-in-law.  Either way, I'm good for one birthday or Mother's Day card.


See you tomorrow with the Color Combos Galore Palette.

Beautiful details and a great memory. Like the aqua blues with the browns and sepia toned photo.
