At the moment, though, now that all deadlines and competitions have passed (for now), I finally have a chance to be still, and it feels...odd. The adrenaline rush has subsided, and I am sort of dazed. Luckily, I now have time to pay attention to my much-neglected blog, and I have a scrappy share for you!
Wednesday's October Afternoon blog post from fellow design team member Stacey Kingman featured the new October Afternoon fabric. Stacey challenged me to create a layout incorporating the fabric, and I was all too happy to comply. I worked it in on the background of a layout about my great-grandmother.
This layout features a story that has been told in my family for three generations.
The idea of my great-grandmother's ghost visiting my aunt used to frighten me when I was little, but as I got older, I came to understand that this was less of a ghost story and more of a love story. My aunt swears that it was not a dream, and though I cannot say for sure whether I believe in ghosts or not, something in me believes this story.
