My very favorite writer, though, is Agatha Christie. It is very hard for me to choose a favorite story or character. Nemesis and Miss Marple are definitely up there at the top of the list, though.
To make this layout, I used Ali Edwards ‘Read’ Story Stamp set from May (which I think is sold out, but if you are into digital or hybrid scrapbooking, the digital kit is available for purchase until June 14th, 2016.) I also used some pieces from my stash:
- Pink Fresh Studio ‘Documented’ Paper
- Pinkfresh Studio Acetate ‘LOVE’
- Pink Paisley ‘Fancy Pants’ Ephemera
- Chipboard arrow from Ali’s ‘Craft’ Story Kit
- Sakura gel pens
- Colorbox pigment inks
- Simple Stories Enamel dots
- Canon Pro 10 photo printer
This is a double page layout for my personal 8.5″ x 11″ album. I did a lot of journaling on this one, so I’ll let that do my story telling here as well! If you have questions about anything I used or did, just leave a comment!
The beginning It all started with the program MYSTERY! on PBS when I was little. I don’t recall how old I was, maybe 10? The program started at 8pm on Sunday night. 8pm was bed time, but usually my parents were preoccupied getting my younger siblings ready for bed. So I would sit and watch Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot. I told Auntie Peggy how much I liked those shows and she encouraged me to read Agatha Christie’s books. I can’t remember which story I read first, but it doesn’t matter – I was hooked!
The middle I don’t collect many books. I’d rather borrow them or pass them on to the next person when I’m done. But A.C.’s books, I love to collect them! My prized possessions are two anthologies that Aunt Peggy found for me. She found them at used book stores. Many of my books are also used. I love that you can find her books anywhere! I also really enjoy her short stories. I usually have one of her compilations next to the bed. It’s nice to quickly read one before bed. I love how clever her stories and characters are.
