Been wanting to make this page to document my friendship with Tracee for some time, and these colors provided the perfect opportunity. Clues I used: Evidence: Patterned ribbon, corrugation, border punch, crown accent, fibers; Testimony, Inspiration Word: Some day.
My journaling reads: She calls herself The Crazy Brit. She's anything but crazy. She's kind. She's supportive. She's funny. She's smart. She's wise. She's creative. She's a super-talented scrapper. She's my very close friend. And it's my very dear wish to meet her in person. I want to hug her and sit next to her and just hang out and talk for hours and go shopping at the scrapbook store together. Only problem is, we are separated by a very big ocean.
Luckily, we have Skype (The Crazy Brit is her Skype name), which is how Tracee came to be my very good friend. We talk just about every day. I look forward to getting up early in the morning so we can chat before I leave for work. We scrap together on the weekends. We even had a birthday party for her via Skype last November.
It's funny how you can have such a good, close friend that you've never actually met. But Tracee is the kind of person that just makes me feel at home. She brings sunshine to my mornings with her awesome, warm smile. She makes me laugh so hard with her witty remarks. She's a sympathetic listener when I've got woes and always has sage advice. She's always got great suggestions when I'm stumped with a scrapbook page. She kicks my ass when I'm too lazy to scrap or clean my scrap desk. Sometimes we just have our webcams on and we're scrapping together or surfing the web, not saying much, but it's cozy and fun knowing a kindred spirit is right beside me, even though she's really an ocean away.
Some day I'm going to meet Tracee in real life and hug her and sit right next to her. We've got big plans for her to come, and I'm already fixing up the guest room. I'm hoping it's sooner rather than later. Tracee, love you, girl!
