I have the perfect cut-out diamond embelli that has been lurking for MONTHS... now hiding.
The floral is simply washi tape, and the tiny photo has tiny patterned papers matting it.
The tobacco stick walking stick we got in Gatlinburg was essential to that success.
I put all the details in tiny type letters & part of the title in ghost letters right on the photo.
The perfect green button on the tag is for Jemma!

This ornament on our door appears to be hanging on the cross (door panels) & reminded us that
On the cross, Jesus died for our sins.
On the cross, God poured out his heart of love for mankind.
On the cross, He brought peace between God & man.
On the cross, God poured out his blood, a spring of living water, that you might have eternal life.
The work is already finished.Will you accept that gift?
Day 23: Transportation/Boat
Alaska again. I will be adding pocket pages to each day's 12x12" highlight page.
Love how the Tim Holtz metal letters stand out on the black.
Day 24: Culture/Sports
Nothing more athletic than dancing!
This is a photo-less memory I have wanted to scrap forever,
especially after I found the Authentique "Nutcracker Sweet" paper line.
The leaping peachy pink ballerina forms my title with the Nutcracker Sweet emblem
mounted on an embellished punched snowflake with the music wafting across.
I even gave her a little punched snowflake "crown". All mounted on a Glitz ballerina
transparency with snowflakes tucked behind & in front.
I carefully cut the bottom strip of ballerina paper to suggest movement to reinforce my story,
and included a family Christmas photo from around the same era that the story took place.
Day 25: Language/Funny Word
This is the point in LOAD when I realize I am beginning to get "prompt-itis".
I am not telling my story, I am not even showing off a photo(s), but merely
falling down the prompt rabbit hole & producing something in response.
It is a fun word, though!
And obviously I thought it interesting when I saved it from Rachel Ray's magazine :-)
(More to the point, I couldn't find the ice cream cone photo I was looking for... sigh)
Day 26:Landmark: The Mackinac Bridge
"We are commonly know as 'trolls' in Michigan, since we live under the bridge :) "
Had to laugh - these letters are from 2006! The adhesive was completely dry.
Makes me VERY AFRAID to look at some of my older albums... =8-O
Here is the link for the live Bridge-cam. Have added it to my page.
There may be a companion page as we visited up there Christmas Eve.
Day 27: Geography: Bampa's lap
That's a geographical place, right? ;-)
An assortment of photos I just wanted down on a page together.
Day 28: Food: first cereal, 6 months old
+ CKC March kit
I used my kit & after I printed out the photo, I only had 20 minutes.
This was a great stretch of my scrappy muscles!
Day 29: Color/Red, black & gold + The Wrap Up Stack photo
33 pages this month! (not all for LOAD, but they count!)
Hit every prompt!
Didn't upload every day but very satisfied with my pages :-)
Journaling: I look around at the happy scrappy aftermath & wouldn't have it any other way.
So many dear, dear friends from around the globe.
How well we know each other from our pages - better than most we know in "real" life.
Scrap on, sistas! May your glue gun never run out & your ink pads never dry up. :-)
