Back on the Horse...

These are the first pages I've done in a LONG time!

This one is of my good friend, Jeanna - she is the topic of a lot of pages in my collection. Every time I see her (which isn't often because of our conflicting schedules and such) I am inspired to make a page about her when I get home.

I hid a journaling block behind her picture that can be pulled out by the skull tag.
This picture was taken last year on my birthday. My parents went out and got me a cake (so sweet of them!) and the girl who decorated it needed a spell check!!! The journaling reads: This is why education is so important. I typed it out with my new (old!) typewriter - a gift from Wade's Mom for Christmas! I love it, but fear that one day I will run out of ribbon and won't be able to find any!

This last page was done in celebration of me getting off my butt and actually doing something. I attended a Two Peas social (lots of ladies getting together who share a common love of scrapping). I have never done anything like this - despite my outgoing nature, I am actually very timid when it comes to trying new things. I had a good time - nothing too terribly exciting happened (although I did meet the ladies of Studio Calico, which was a nice surprise!) - more than anything, I am proud of myself for going alone and taking myself out of my comfort zone.

In other news, I won some free ribbon + lace from Breanne Crawford's blog - a nice surprise! Also, Stephanie Howell wrote about me in a blog entry a couple of days ago... she's seriously the funniest, sweetest girl!

Okay, that's all...

speaking of misspelled cakes, have you been to cake wrecks? (google that, you won't be sorry)

typewriter ribbon can be found online. mine is from um, the 50s i think, and i bought ribbon online for it. just gotta make sure it's the right model.
