Tree Pose

My dear friend Patti from SCS suggested we each make a 6x6 scrap page of ourselves and share one with everyone in the group that wanted to participate in this project.  Twelve of us participated and now I have a mini photo album which includes some really terrific women which have all become important friends to me.  Our project was to include a photo and a few of our favorite things in life!

I was as wits end about having my picture taken, but my SIL was kind enough to offer her time, expertise and the tree in her front yard in order for me to strike a pose!

I used the tree as the main  theme for my page which worked perfectly with my Spellbinders vine, MemoryBox flourish and leave dies. I love it when Word graphics works in my favor as I had fun setting up the font to compliment the theme.  My name tag was made out of a chunky Sizzlix die x 3 cuts to give the black shadow to coordinate with my shirt and my border.  How would it be possible to have a tree theme w/o a bird?  Martha Stewart’s dove with heart punch is perched on top of the background vine.

The wooden clips serve a purpose as a photo of my kids is on the back of my photo—hubby and Muddy didn’t make the cut! (Next time guy’s!)  The back of my project consisted of a homemade crossword puzzle-it’s not perfect but I think it gets my point across!

Thanks Patti—this was fun!
