Fourth of July LO

OK girls.....I was super excited to use my Cricut and my Xyron, so I made these in a hurry.
SO......they are not the most exciting pages, but I actually like them a lot!! The picture on the first LO I absolutely love, because that is the last picture I have of my friend Katie (the one on the far right, next to me..I'm the shortest one!) before she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She lost all her hair in the first round of chemo Sad We had a lot of fun that night and I wanted to scrap this pic for sure!!

Here they are...they are from fourth of July at Navy Pier in Chicago! In my scrapbook, they are in this order...the red one is on the left, the blue one is on the right! I tried taking a pic together but it looked better doing them seperately!

oh, they came out great!!!!!! I'd love to see them side by side. what works for me is putting the two pages next to each other on the floor then standing on a chair to get the picture of the two of them. Wink

Thanks! The "Navy Pier" letters were bigger than I wanted, but I decided to use them anyway!
I will try that tip you gave me with the two pages now.

sometimes it's trial and error with the sizes. the layout I did today (will post tomorrow), I should have gone a size smaller with the letters. but the paper I cut it from was all used up once I cut it with the "accidental size" so I used it anyway. Wink but I think it looks neat with the big letters, we definitely know where you were! Wink

Thanks for asking about Katie Smile
She found out she had cancer about a month and a half ago. It was a pretty aggressive form of cancer, requiring a very aggressive form of chemo. She was admitted for the first round of chemo on Dec. 2 (her 21st birthday Sad ) and was there for a week....then two weeks off....she went back on Dec. 23 for another week of chemo. Now she's on her two week "break" from chemo and it's taking its toll on her this time. She's been really sick and weak. But God has always been faithful and I know he'll see her through this!

I'm sure that was more than you wanted to know, but I figured I'd share. Again, thanks for asking about her Wink

Both lo's are great, I don't think the letters are too big. Lots of prayers to your friend.
