This is my sister Allison (I call her Ally), she is my older sister by 5 years. Her and I haven’t always seen eye to eye… I think both of us being Leo’s is part of the reason, and my epilepsy diagnosis made it so my mouth has no filter… so if it is thought (wrong or right – rude or nice) it’s said. Ally was there for my husband the night I had my first seizure (and second…and third)… helped Del and the doctors understand the head injury that went unnoticed and by whom. Ally was there helping me to understand my mouth more, and why I have been so rude to people (her especially). For the most part, she was the main reason I came home (kicking and screaming) – she was the first person I saw from my family before we even pulled a thing from the trucks. She is the first person I go to, she tells me straight up what she thinks, and doesn’t mix words! She is everything to me right now, and one I can’t ever not have in my life.
Now, I will simply tell you, if you were to see the pictures on the wall in her living room, you would understand why she got an actual album from me for her birthday!!! She has NO room left for anything, I have no idea where she is going to put anymore! This album was created for her to put more pictures and actual journaling to help document her life other than just pictures on her wall! Best thing about this – is the fact we can add more pages as she needs them, though the journaling is the most important!
One thing I really like about this album is the papers itself, I didn’t have to use a lot of embellishments because the papers were loud enough! For me, it all starts with the papers and the title page, from there it all comes together! I have enough leftovers to give her so she can add the little stickers and embellishments as she wants to! For the title page above, I used my Cricut machine for the title, hearts and flowers – the bird, and 2 flowers in the bottom left corner, are from the album pack, which match the papers we used.
I really like how this one turned out, special project for a really special person! If you only knew our background – and if you only knew it NOW. My sister has taught me forgiveness, and love – unconditional I love you and I am going to kick your ASS all rolled up into one small ball of fire! I know one thing, if people hate my mouth, they probably won’t like hers either (wink, wink)! Love ya sis!
Your challenge for the month – find a project you want to make for a special person, and get it done! Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time,
