This one is simple - it was hard for me to work on. When I scrap my pictures, since they are put into chronological books and are like a journal to me, I don't like to give away future information on pages even though I'm scrapping them way after the fact. I want them to be as though I did the page right after the event - mainly because I always USED to be caught up, and DIDN'T scrap things four years later. This is me and my group of Up North friends - Patrick, his Lab Snowy, Mike, Keith, & Scott. I will probably use the photo on the left again at some point to go in my 2012 book because it is the only photo I have of myself and my friend Patrick together. But this LO is meant for August 2008, and I didn't know then that less than 3 1/2 years later he would be killed in a snowmobile accident. Anyway, this LO took a lot out of me today so this was the best I could do.
I used last month's MSC Week 1 Bonus Sketch that I didn't get to in July.
This is for the August One Month at a Time Challenge, in which all of the photos on the LO's must be from any August - these are from August 5, 2008. This is Week 2, which required:
1. the word 'friendship' - I have a quote sticker that says "In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter and sharing of pleasures." - Kahil Gibran;
2. one supply purchased or received in the last month - I bought the Tim Holtz clock yesterday for this LO;
3. photo matting; and 4. at least 4 different colors - I have blue, green, black, cream/beige, and pink (in the flowers).
This is also for the VLB Challenge to do a LO about a relaxing activity. I can't think of anything more relaxing than a sunset pontoon ride in the only boat on the lake with cocktails and dear friends.
Journaling says: An evening cruise on Big Portage - I caught a walleye in the hole but it broke the line. We followed up with guitars, bourbon, & Bailey's on Keith's porch.
