Yep... that's Sharon and me... happy buddies at the beach! *grin* I was super thrilled that she made time during her US vacation to fly down from San Francisco to visit me... this layout kind of just recaps it all for me... HAPPY!
I love the gorgeous layout from Maureen that Wendy chose for the SSL this week! I sure wish I could blend like that! I tried and couldn't make it work, so I went back to "me"... that said, I was inspired by Maureen's layered frames, so I used three doodled frames behind my photo. I also loved her two simple embellishments... I used our initials. I also really loved the subtle and random text brushes in the background... since this was turning into a 'clean' layout, I elected to use one graphic brush, but I took the randomness of the text brushes and spaced my journaling lines irregularly. Instead of using the grungy edge brushes that Maureen used, I simply enlarged a couple of doodled frames so I just had the lines and edged my page that way!
Thank you, Maureen and Wendy, for a fun (and challenging for me!) SSL!
And, thank you, Heather, for reminding me how much I don't like capital letters either! *wink*
