Well we’re finally here – the end of the game which started way back in October last year to celebrate my 50th blog post (I’m past 65 now btw).
I’m in a unique position writing this – I’m the only one who has seen all of the pages – until, that is, someone goes through the full list of blogs. And I think you’re in for a surprise or two.
I guess I’d better get the party started and show you my page:
I took these photos in September at Gullivers World. I knew I wanted to record the memory – it was the smell of burnt carbon from the sparks that struck me as I watched the cars whizzing round. I used to love bumper cars but after getting whiplash injuries in 2 car accidents and my spine being misaligned at the neck, it’s definitely a ride I have to sit out these days.
Using a flash wouldn’t have worked, but the poor lighting meant I needed a slow shutter speed, so needless to say they weren’t the best quality shots. My only solution was to print the photos small and hope that the blur conveyed a feeling of movement and speed!
I went for a dark background with cardstock from Echo Park and opted for red paint rather than patterned paper to back the photos. I clustered the photos and cut the lightning strike arrows using We R Memory Keepers Teenage Angst papers.
Puddle Duck graciously allowed me to raid her journalling cards and I also added some wordfetti (never really know what to do with that stuff!) and some Making Memories metal stars (they fix on like eyelets) which I have had for a long time and never used. The alphas are Echo Park and K&Co – both romantically themed! I finished off with splatters of glimmer mist, brads and journalling with a white pen.
So where will the page go from here? There are thirteen stops along the way. How will the page change as it passes through those crafty hands? There’s only one way to find out – join the blog hop and follow the page on its way. Here is your path:
If you do the blog hop, make sure and leave a comment on every page, Deb (my fellow DT member from Soul Scrappers) has very kindly donated a couple of prizes and one will go in a random draw to someone who leaves a comment on each and every blog in the hop.
And don’t forget to come back at the end and let me know you’ve commented on all the blogs to be entered in the draw. I think you’ll be surprised at how it all turns out! See you again soon.
