One Saturday, I asked him if he wanted bacon with his pancakes. (Every Saturday Derick makes pancakes for the boys. One of their favorite meals.) Dominic looked at me somberly and told me, "Pancakes are not pancakes without bacon." I laughed and posted his comment on Facebook, which prompted a family friend who knows Dominic to encourage me to write a book called "What Dominic Says." It's true, Dominic is a champion at memorable phrases. I have scrapped numerous pages about his phrases, so I used this month's Write Click Scrapbook prompt "Conversations" to record this latest aphorism. Here's the page:
I printed some photos my friend Jennifer from Junglefish Photography took of Dominic last year for this page. He looks so sweet. I used Studio Calico's December kit 34th Street to make the page.
I used some strips of Hepburn vellum from Studio Calico's Darling Dear collection to back the photos, curling up the edges for some interest. And there wasn't much room for an embellishment cluster to balance out the big cluster on the bottom, so I added some cross-stitches. So easy, and a cute touch!
Here's the embellishment cluster, also the title: I used KI Memories Flashback Instaframes paper to frame the title. The October Afternoon Midway collection was fun, adding some nice, playful phrases to the grouping. And how perfect was that speech bubble paper clip! I rolled up some glue dots to stick the bubble to the page unobtrusively.
The journaling--click on the photo to view it bigger. I like to print tone-on-tone if I don't want the journaling to stand out too much. Plus, I don't have a wide-format printer, which forces me to be creative. Heh.
So this is my contribution to the Write Click Scrapbook Gallery this month, a silly one, maybe, but a sweet conversation too. Please visit the gallery and see the varied emotions and words that people are recording. And do share: are there are memorable conversations in your life now or from the past that you should be putting on a page? Have fun recording them!
