A Note from Aly
A few tidbits about this page: 1) the patterned paper you see on the left is actually cut from the bottom half of the front page of the Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends collage kit—it’s a sampling of all the papers that come in the kit; 2) I used small paper doilies as masks when I misted my background paper; 3) I used accent ink to paint the bare chipboard alphas and to paint journaling lines (the ink comes in a nail polish bottle with a foam tip applicator for painting).
I remember…growing up with complete confidence that my parents loved each other. Their marriage has always been rock solid. I’m so thankful!
November Fun Fact
Before she got married my mom used to be a spokesmodel for several local businesses and ad agencies. Isn’t she beautiful? (I ended up looking more like my dad…oh well, LOL!)
