My inspiration for this layout actually came from this month's ScrapFriends sketch, but is my own version.
I never thought to lay paper across the page like this and now I like it! Even better is cutting a hole in it and putting more paper behind it and a photo.
Are you curious as to what this page is about? I am sure you are!
Well, you see...Friday normally involves fish fry in my neck of the woods. And those are fish fry boxes from Price Chopper, the only place I know of local where you can get it.
Basically you call ahead and for the low low price of $5 you get a fried fish dinner with fries. The kids love it. I get mine steamed and pretend I am being healthy although I eat the fries anyway!
The lady on the phone wanted the name of who was picking them up. In a fit of amusement I told her Nate the Great. There was a pause and I said oh just try it. He will think it's funny. Of course, THE MAN does not like these kinds of nicknames.
The lady behind the counter was DYING when he arrived and yelled to the entire store: NATE THE GREAT IS HERE and threw her hands wide.
He was mortified. Texted me bad things like wait til I get home you are dead. I wasn't afraid. Fish fry is best warm. No way he was going to ruin dinner!
Here is the side view of my page. I am loving this paper combination. It's my newest kit from Scraptastic called Eight Days A Week. I am ALSO loving those flairs. They are exclusive from Ormolu.
I am also LOVING the fact I am getting my stamps out again. Used two on here from Close to My Heart. The realistic coffee stain one and these fish! Some banners of course to use up some paper scraps. ;-)
So, that it is for me today on this fabulous HUMP DAY!
