I actually didn't use a lot of supplies - just kind of made my own template (a scraplift of a page by Kayleigh Wiles) and used the color fill tool to fill blocks in, as recoloring is sometimes NOT my favorite. I have a hard time getting things to match, and I don't know if there's some secret amazing easy way to recolor that I don't know about, or what . . . Maybe someday I'll figure it out!

So, I had a page like this in mind while I was baking my Grandma's banana bread recipe, and feeling all homesick and sorry for myself. What a good page idea, I thought to myself! And perhaps theraputic too! It was going to be so lovely, with my beautiful loaf of iced banana bread lovingly displayed on a vintage-looking tea towel. Grandma would be so proud! But yeah, I forgot to take a picture of the bread. I just ate it. And it was delightful. Cheered me right up! At least I got a picture of the bread-making action and my special bowl!

I'm not sure about the framing on this one, but I sort of like the rustic wood feel around it, and it would look kind of cool as the matting under a real frame (maybe?!?). And I feel like maybe I should do more on the page, but the paper is already SO fabulous that I don't want to take away from it. But I was really wanting to do something with this paper, because I seriously LOVE it. But I may go back and mess with it a little more. Everything from Memory Lane, except the wood framing is the frame from Bountiful, and the little birdies are from Barefoot.<br /><br />2 comments bessysue581 Mon, 24 Sep 2012 15:12:47 +0000 BFF's <a href=";title=bff-27s&amp;cat=500"><img title="bff1.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="bff1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: bessysue581<br /><br />Description: This is my best friend since 4th grade ~ We have been friends for 22 years! She had her first baby 2 weeks ago and this is a pic of us at her baby shower. We live far apart, but have always kept in touch and it's like we were never apart when we get together!!! Pinterest (which I am slightly addicted to) is giving me some fun inspiration lately. This LO is a lift of a paper scrapper's page (Scrapgoo is her blogger name) that I thought was super-cute with all the banners. Can you imagine how long it would take though to make sure all those &quot;real&quot; banners were the right size??? I am thankful for my resizing tool!!! The quote along the top and bottom was found on Pinterest too, although I can't find the original source. It says: &quot;You're the strangest person I've ever met &amp; I said you too &amp; we decided we'd know each other a long time.&quot; And that pretty much sums up our friendship! Supplies used are the SUPER cute Penelope Kit and freebie coordinating kit from Shabby Princess! The stitched &quot;friends&quot; alpha is by Kim Jensen, and the banner templates are by Katie Pertiet. Thanks for looking!<br /><br />8 comments bessysue581 Fri, 21 Sep 2012 18:41:28 +0000 6 Months Old <a href=";title=6-months-old&amp;cat=500"><img title="kaleb_6_mo.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="kaleb_6_mo.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: bessysue581<br /><br />Description: These are the pics I took for my little guy's 6 month photo shoot.

I used the Heartfelt collection and some ribbons from Gracie for this page. I almost forgot - this page was inspired by Kim's &quot;If You're Happy&quot; page here:;title=if-you-27re-happy&amp;cat=all No better inspiration than looking through the Shabby Artist's galleries!
