Hello World! (3 Photos)
In my heart of hearts I don't believe it's possible to have too much stuff on a page. As I've mentioned before, I think I must have been frightened by white space as a child, and now I avoid it whenever possible.
The story is this...
My friend, for whom I've made this page, is my polar opposite when it comes to scrapbook pages and memory keeping. In fact, her photos, when she actually gets them off her hard drive, are mainly put into simple photo albums, so I was completely taken aback when she asked if I would scrap some photos for her, and she specifically asked me to "Release the Kraken!" as it were. (Um, that's a line from the cheesy movie "Clash of the Titans." <sound of crickets chirping> Okay, you had to be there...)
The photos are of her son, the light of her life. She has yet to put together any kind of a baby album for him, even though he is well into grade school, and she wanted me to make one of my colorful, noisy, generally brain-freezing pages as the intro page for her album. I'm still not sure why she wanted this, but you don't have to ask me twice to add things to a page! Since she had three photos she wanted on her page, I immediately pounced on this as my entry for the "3 or more photos" challenge for the Oct. 2013 Guest CT contest. The desktop of my computer is currently littered with the many, many iterations of this page, and although her page will have a bit more personal journaling on it, she is pleased with what I've done here so I am declaring it done...even though I am fairly certain I could squeeze one or ten more items on it...somewhere...
Whew! This scrapping on demand is nerve-racking! Such drama!
