Light Page for the ScrapFit Simple Things Challenge
Did you ever notice that doilies from someplace else are exotic?
I mean, I imagine they must come in a package just like ours here of say 12 for super cheap but these that came to me all wrapped up special from Greece...yes, they basically were added to this page lickety split in a fit of love. IN fact, my hoarder nature caused me to actually cut one in half! Big thanks to Irini for my package of exotic scrappy treats! That little ticket in the corner is from her too!
I am crazy about doilies and happy mail!!
No more crazy for making a page about Light.
All day when it's not overcast I am bathed in light from the huge windows we have in the back of the house overlooking the meadow.
In the summer of course, that means I occasionally bake which prompts me to hole up some place with air conditioning.
The rest of the time, that means I'm enjoying the view. Having worked in various places, some of which didn't even HAVE windows, I'm not taking this gig I have for granted.
Light in winter is especially nice as I remember at the old house rolling down the driveway in the dark and rolling back up the driveway in the dark. Saturday am was always a shock when I saw how dirty and dusty things were because I had only looked at my house in the evening all week!
The background paper is from Tim Holtz and was also a gift from Lisa.
I kept this page pretty simple in going with the latest challenge over at ScrapFit. The chief lady over there is also a North County girl so I am betting she will totally agree with me when I say the sunsets and sunrises here are amazing! There is this blue that the sky gets that is out of this world. I have tried and tried to capture the sky, but photos cannot compare.
Oh and how did my clay class go on Saturday!? Amazing! I can almost feel a piece of my brain that was locked away starting to come alive. In fact, as I was falling asleep last night I was thinking about what I want my first project to be!
