Today I am sharing the first page of my album of all time scrapbooking! The moment when everything changed and a new chapter in my life started. This doesn't mean that this is the first page that I made, it is actually one of the last ones. I decided that I wanted to start scrapbooking the happy moments in my life since 3 years ago.
This is one of the first photos that I took during my first days in Austin, TX. I went there almost 3 years ago (wooow...time flies) as a exchange student for one year to finish my undergraduate studies in Biochemistry in UT.
That was definitely one of the best years in my life. I met a lot different people from so many different countries over there, I made such good friends, I visit so many cool places and I had so much fun and experiences and also I met my boyfriend there. So I soon became a Texas lover and this is my page to my adored Texas.
As you can see on the right top of the page I write down the song called Deep in the heart of Texas... such a Texan song! I used one of the Dear Lizzy's Lucky Charm stamp which was perfect to give and idea that what I wrote it is actually a song.
I played with a sketch from my Happiescrappie friend. Have you check her blog? I love her work!! She has a lot of great sketchy ideas and color palettes and it is so much fun and inspiration to see her projects.
So once I had the sketch and the photo I look for some earthy papers at my stash and some Texan embellishments. Most of them and from several collection from Studio Calico as the wood alphabet. Isn't it perfect for this? I wanted to add also some twine and threads as the ones that the cowboys use. It was so much fun playing with these layering too!
I also used a BananaFishStudio stamp (Adventure - ready·set·go) which goes perfect with the theme.
If you ever have the chance to visit Austin, TX, go! do not hesitate it! There some many outdoors activities, so many places to visit, party or live music places and delicious food....
