My Scrapbook Goals and How I'm Doing

Withdrawl was getting to great

Well I haven't been able to scrap since Friday because while I'm recovering in bed my EHD is out in the living room at my desk. After losing the last EHD to an unfortunate slip and fall accident when a child who is actually still alive tripped over the cord. Because of that the new is placed more securely and there for a pain to move. Well today I could not stand it a second more. So I grabbed some pictures off the internet and did a story page for my oldest. I had fun and hope in a day or two to actually be back at my desk. I had to use stuff stored on my desktop waiting to be filed. But after this weekend I did have a bunch. The template is Sunblast from Sunshine Studio. I removed the ray layer as the paper I chose came with the effect. The paper and elements are from A Work in Progress - About A Boy Freebie set. Because the photos were low quality ad photos I used the paper for the journal tags as picture background as well. I filled the empty spots with some Boys elements. Font is Rockwell Extra Bold. I used the large photo spot to journal and used the journal tags as Burma Shave ad type signs. (These were road side ads that were before my time but brought back in limited areas in the 80's by Country Magazine. They were a series of couplets that spread over several miles to advertise Shaving Cream. )
