I saw the idea of putting this all together on a blog that I now cannot find the link to! If you happen to have seen something similar please leave it in the comment section so I can give some credit. When I saw the idea, I knew I wanted to create one. It wasn't hard for me to figure out what book needed to be sacrificed. If you know me well enough you know it had to be This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen. It's my all-time favorite book, and during high school and still today, Sarah Dessen is an author I admire because she can write such great contemporary novels.
Some of the pages include:
page 344 where the lyrics to the song are,
page 182 Remy showing Dexter the science of laundry
page 307 just one of the many spots where Hate Spinnerbait comes about
page 173 Dexter informs Remy she loves him because she bought him plastic ware
page 148 Dexter and Remy grocery shopping together - "What if I embarrass you? What if I break some heirloom family china? Or talk about you in your underwear?"
page 336 - "Did you really believe, that first day, that we were meant to be together?" I asked him. Enough said.
Then I brewed a cup of coffee, took out the filter and started dabbing the pages. While they dried, I laid out how I wanted my scrapbook pages to go, grabbed some Mod Podge, and got to placing. After the pages were dry, I started layering them around. IN some ways I wish I would have done more layering with the scrapbook pages, but all in all I still love the end result. The lettering was some K & Company ones I had lying around. Kinda of crazy how perfectly they matched with it!
