LOAD514 – Day Twenty-Eight, 8pm Reader

Scrapbook LO of me at 11Looks like the rush is over, and we are back to normal.  Yay!  Lain challenged us today to talk about our bedtime routines.  I don’t remember hugs and kisses, like Sean gets every night, but I do remember the 8:00pm bedtime.  I hated it.  I was sure there was so much going on in the house after I went to bed.

But, in our house, we didn’t have to go to sleep. We could be quietly in our rooms for as late as we wanted.  So, I would read.  I read tons!  I would wake up with books in my hands.  One thing I do remember about my childhood is that I was always reading.

I found this photo of me in my pj’s in Mom and Dad’s bedroom when I was 11 or so.  I thought it worked really well for the prompt.  Surprisingly, there doesn’t seem to be any photos of me reading.  Oh well.  As Lain tells us, you don’t need a picture of you doing the activity to tell your story.

In my stash busting, I have been pulling out the Gossamer Blue kits that I have in hiding.  While I was so sick, I wasn’t scrapping, so I have like 5 kits that I never really touched.  So, I used the Gossamer Blue December 2013 kit with this LO.  The only thing I added was some lace tape.  Things I’ve been seeing a lot of is layering OVER the photo in the LOAD gallery.  I decided I’d give it a try, and I think this photo overlay works so well with the photo.  It brings that teal accent over the orange, which makes it a more brown color.  It’s not as severe as some of the layering I’ve seen, but this isn’t a severe photo.  I’m happy with my results.

Do you have a night time routine that you remember?  What is your favorite book?  Are you stash busting?
