Sayonara dry spell!
I made a layout!!! Yay!! I won't even tell you how long it took me to make this, all that matters is that I did it. I used this month's My Mind's Eye sketch and color challenge, pink and red. As soon as I pulled the papers and then the picture, I saw this come together. It was the title I struggled with. First it said "GALS" in magenta glitter letters. Then I put it back to this safari print, "Girls" but it looked like it was missing something, so I dug out this little container which holds the remains of two very different alphas, one pink plastic and one bronze metal. I tried a ton of different words like "best"- missing the s & t, "great"- still missing the t, 'xoxo"- didn't fit right until finally I stumbled across "home." I figure I had my word search lesson for the day plus made a great layout. "Home Girls" works because these two girlies are ones who you know would travel across the country for you, would make you chicken noodle soup at 2:00 am if you were hungry, who for some reason love you even though you are crazy. Heck, maybe that is why they love you. And that, to me, is a home girl.
