Thank you so much for sticking with me at In THIS Life.  It’s been fun.  It’s just time for a little something different…

So, I’ve had these two photos of the boys for five years.  I’ve scrapped them six times over the past three years…and trashed every try.  They’ve been giving me fits.  I decided to try again, using this week’s DigiDare for inspiration.  Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.  After more agonizing, I decided simple would suit these best:

I was right: simple was best.  (And, yep, I’m still working through the 2005 photos.  And, nope, I don’t think I’ll ever catch up.  I’m okay with that.  Mostly.)

Something old: The font, 1942 Report, looks like it came from an old typewriter.  It’s one of my go-to fonts.
Something new (meaning a supply I haven’t used before): The stitched heart from the Once Upon A Story Kit (Designs by Lili)
Something borrowed: The idea to block the photos with papers, taken from a layout Mom emailed me this evening.
Something blue: The stitching and both fonts are navy.

A good day’s work.

ETA: After a good night’s sleep, it occurs to me that the above pictures could be misconstrued.  My newfound calmness in the room has to do with the paint color on the walls, not the lack of children romping on my bed.  (Although, if we’re being totally honest here, that certainly helps.)
