This winter, as I tried to reduce (my one little word for the year) my caffeine intake, I developed a new favorite beverage: hot tea. One day, while I was drinking a steaming cup of citrus chamomile, I noticed the flag at the end of the tea bag. It reminded me of the banners that are still so hot on LOs (pun intended), so I decided to make a LO about my current love of tea. Here's the page:
I dutifully (my husband would say obsessively) collected the tags off of tea bags, trying to collect a variety that would still look cohesive on a page. I tried putting them at a jaunty angle, but let's face it, this winter has not left anyone feeling jaunty. I opted instead for a straight banner at the bottom. I handstiched the banner, decided against machine stitching because the tags had staples in them.
I also dug into my die cut stash to make the "home" for the title and the title letters. The rest of the products, except for some Jillibean goodies left over from Sketch Support last month, came from my January Studio Calico kit "Who's Who," which I've just about exhausted and am ready to retire.
I should mention, I take regular pictures of myself, sometimes by extending my arm (if you do it often enough, you get good) or by handing over the camera. This time I asked my husband to take the photo. He was a doll, deleting the first photo and insisting on taking a second so it would "look like me." Thanks, hon.
So I challenge you to make a page about yourself this week! Write.click.scrapbook had a fabulous series last week giving ideas for what to scrap about yourself. Do you have a favorite topic or a favorite LO you've done about yourself? Please share! Then go scrap.
