OK, friends. This blog is officially back online!
Four years ago today I hit publish on my very first blog post. 462 posts and 6,121 comments later, it was time for a change. New colors, new design, new logo. I’m still tweaking the design, but fingers crossed, there won’t be anymore down time.
How about a new layout?
I scrapped this one using my May Scraptastic kit. It was full of goodies from Pink Paislee’s Switchboard collection. The theme of the papers made me feel nostalgic, so I dug up some photos from high school. This layout is about my best friend growing up and our marathon phone conversations. We were pros!
A few details: I embossed a kraft tag that came in the kit with numbers to reinforce the numbers theme of the page, I turned my photos to black and white as they are all from the early 90’s and the colors were not compatible with the products I was using, I added our phone numbers (it’s blurred here) to the phone journaling spot in the top right corner and I added our area code at the time – “509” – to the bottom right side.
This is one of those stories I might never have captured had it not been for the theme of the paper. I’m not one to get too themey with my layouts, but I really love how this turned out.
Who else spent hours and hours on the phone with their best friend in high school?
Thanks for stopping by today!
