I didn't realize this until I was done with this page. This looks exactly like a picture of my sister and I that was taken when we were younger. We even had red outfits. I'm trying to remember where I've put it to put here so you can see. It's rather uncanny. I wasn't going for anything quite that specific. I love the quote that I found for it.

How true of my sister and I.
The back page. The number 2 is actually hand drawn and cut out. I'm pleased that it turned out so well. The red flowered background is from a Scrap booking store I recently discovered. Spent more in there than I thought I would but did buy lots of really pretty papers.
This next page went to Germany. When I started on the background I had absolutely no idea what I wanted this page to be I was just having fun with it. I love the way the blues and browns came together. More inchies and the sheet music I used for this actually was from a sports related song that the title now escapes me. Don't the fellas look excited to be there?
Here's the back side. The colors ended up a little brighter on this side for some reason, not so muted. I don't like circles, do I?
The bird is like an extra large inchie. I decided that because it was a three inch square that I would call it a thrinchie...yeah I know, sounds dumb, lol.
Here's a close up of him, just because he amuses me so. I've named him Phillipe.
