Oh, my gosh, that totally would have freaked me out! Your dad and mom sound like quite the practical jokesters -- what an awesome story to commemorate! I especially like what you've done with the title work here, with that pretty yet sort of solemn vintage alpha, and then the openly ominous font underneath. In fact, the vintage feel to all of the elements and photos here is just so perfect -- it ties together the two themes of 'childhood story' and 'spirit world.' Very well done! I'm nominating this for Baker's Best this week: http://forums.gingerscraps.net/showthread.php?19208-Baker-s-Best-9-2-9-8&p=225064#post225064
Proudly creating for Lynn Grieveson and WendyP Designs and guesting for Connie Prince in January.
What a story! Oh my goodness. I am so glad you scrapped this memory. Your page is beautiful. The vintage items scattered around and the great title font are awesome. Congrats on your Baker's Best nomination!
Fun memory to scrap! Lovely, lovely arrangement. The black and white photo looks terrific with the color combo. The bits of lace and vintage look elements are placed beautifully on the page. Congrats on the well-deserved BB nomination!
Lol, what a great story, I loved reading it, and I'm sure you have been told before that you have a real talent for writing. I love that old(er) photo too, I can just picture the 2 of you a bit down the road, a little older, curious, and needing to be entertained, lol. That was one of the many "spirit" games we used to play when I was a kid too, and have been freaked out a time or 2, lol. The way you created and placed the fabulous elements is outstanding and so creative and fun to look at. The whole page is really beautifully done, I love it. Congrats on the BB nomination!
Jenni ---- your parents sound like they were a couple of big kids themselves, hahaha. What a great story and memory. And of course your layout is totally scrumptious! I have a few fond memories of scary Ouija experiences as a kid myself, but would never have thought to scrap them. You are a genius. I love all of your work. ~ Arlene
LOLOL what a hoot! And you've remembered that story all these years later. I love how you told your story with the journaling down the side and I like how you lined it up on the right. Your layering and stacking is phenomenal. I love it.
