"MISS Interpretations;" I tried to relax and scrapbook with my friends Jenny and Tina. The ladies came over just after six and both of my friends immediately pulled out fixins for a layout, while I jabbered away.
At 730 Tina needed to leave to go pick up her daughter from work, but she planned to return by 9; so I thought that during her absence I'd write my blog and then finally sit down to try and make a layout.
Once my blog was completed, I took out 2 photos of Kelsie from our trip to Grand Junction, CO in 2005; as last week, when Julie and Joni came over, I had completed a lay out for Lyndzi from the very same trip. As much as I wanted to replicate Lyndzi's layout; I didn't have the exact amount of each of the papers that I had used; so I had to come up with a variation of the same.
I was very pleased with the layout; but it was gettiing very late and I still needed to put on the title.
I probably should have quit while I was ahead; because I used rub-on letters for the title and once they were applied; I absolutely hated it. I immediately decided to remove the rub-ons; but they didn't want to cooperate. I tried to use Scotch tape, but the rub-ons were being very stubborn; and I must say that I found it extremely, ironic that I had such a difficult time trying to take them off, since when as I was cutting them off of the sheet, letters that I didn't need, were coming off of the backing, left and right.
I took as much of the rub-ons off as possible, by using Scotch tape; but you can still see a great deal of it; so I figured that I would use some other type of letters to cover it up. I was hoping to post my completed lay out tonight. I tired no less than 4 kinds of letters and even tried putting a piece of paper over the remnant rub-ons, and adhering my new letters to the paper; but nothing seemed to look right. So I decided that I'm going to share my lay out with you AS IS, thus far; and then I would appreciate it if all of you scrapbookers who read "The Bumpy Ride," can tell me how in the world I'm supposed to remove this rub-on.
