scrapbooking adventures - NYC


I’m not sure if I’m getting any better, but here is another attempt at scrapbooking, this time with images from my trip to NYC in December with my oldest friend, Karen. We’ve known each other since we were 10 years old (grade 4). In recent years we fell out of touch (only sending emails to each other about once a year) but my wedding sort of reunited us, which was really nice. It’s amazing how easy it can be to just be with someone who has known you that long and through so many changes.

It’s just nice to be able to enjoy silence with someone, especially when you’re travelling. We’ve never really travelled together before, but it was good partially, I think, because we have such a long history that it was simple. We could take a long train ride together and chat and do crosswords or knit or read and it was fine. It was a calm trip, but fun. I’m glad we did it together.

The design for this page was made from Jessica Sprague’s Echoes of Asia. The centre picture is a bit distorted and needs to be fixed. I may also add a background to the pictures in order to make the frames pop because right now I’m not sure if they really stand out enough.
