LOAD #6-Dream Big

Monday, February 6, 2012

Almost a week in the bag!  What started out as an organized day, suddenly just got wacky.  Too much time wasted on the phone trying to take care of simple business.  Really zapped my calm mood and sent Mr. Mojo packing.  Bummer for me.  Nothing like trying to be creative when you are frazzled.  I did manage to sneak in a bit of time to get today's project done.  I kind of got lost in it and it didn't turn out the way I saw it in my head.  I used the February sketch from ScrapHappy for today's LOAD prompt: Little Girl Dreams.

These are more like Big Girl Dreams.  This was the day I left on my cross country drive for my move to Chicago in Feb of 1991. I had stopped at my grandparents house for brunch and one last goodbye. Some of my friends came over, gave me the hat and the bear, (whose name was Sebastian and I have no idea why).  I was scared, nervous and excited. I definitely was not sure I was doing the right thing.  New city, home, roommate, job, climate.  It was all going to be new.  The bottom line was, if it didn't work out, I could always go home.  But, the only thing I did know was that I was finally going to see Wrigley Field. :-)
Here is my LO.
This is also my entry for Club CK Jan/Feb '12 Issue Challenge #6, go hybrid.  I think that's where I lost my way.  I was trying to do too much with this page, and it wasn't coming together the way I had envisioned.  The skyline photo and tag at the bottom I printed from internet images.  

Supplies used: PP, Echo Park, Fancy Pants, Recollections. CS, Bazzill, Thickers, CC Tiny Type, Jolee's, twine.
