The Last LOAD #29-Dragon Tales

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

First I want to say thank you for those that have followed me long my journey. Your support and comments meant a lot to me and I am grateful.  This is The Last One.  I made it.  It was a lot of fun and I did not in any way put stress on myself to do this.  There was a day or so when I did not feel like scrapping, so I didn't.  I was able to complete more than 29 LO's this month and for that, I am very proud of myself.  Today's LOAD prompt is: Once in a Blue Moon.  What were things that didn't happen very often.  Well, in my house that would have meant a box of sugar cereal appeared on the shelf, but it isn't really possible to scrap that today.

After the 'Cow' craze in Chicago, Naperville decided to do it's own version.  There were Giraffes, Fairies, Pigs, and this year, it was Dragons.  Fitting for a little boy who loved the show Dragon Tales.   I have these photos of a day I spent with my son wandering around Naperville looking at and taking pictures of all the Dragons. Because, it isn't very often that Dragons are wandering around your town...

I used yet another unfinished class LO.  I said I had about 50 and I meant it.  They definitely came in handy this month, especially on days when I wasn't feeling creative and/or pressed for time. I had printed both 4x6 and a collage of the photos. My plan was to use a combination of them and this page was great for that.  I added Thickers for the title, some green Stickles, and inked the edge of the journaling block.

I think tomorrow, after I have decompressed (and cleaned my scrap room!!!) I will write down some thoughts about LOAD.  If you are interested at all, you should check out or
