He Called Me What???

Everyone thinks that it is funny that one of the first things my husband ever did when we met is call me a SNOT! He really did!

We were both going to college is Marshall, Minnesota. I am from a suburb of Chicago and he from the Twin Cities. He was on the orientation staff at my college- helping freshman get to know the school (and totally flirt with them as far I as could tell). He was asking a group of us where we were from and I told him I was from Chicago (I found this easier than trying to explain to people where I was from as everyone asked). He asked if I was from the city or the suburbs and i explained where I was from anyways. He looked at me with the most adorable cocky smile and said, "So your a suburban snot?!" I knew than I liked him!
Now almost 15 years later I am so glad he called me a snot. Now that I have an album I am working on with pages Just 4 Me I decided to make one about this moment in our lives. I had the photo of him laying down in a box. This was taken right around the time we met and the other is him at a wedding a few years back.
I found a bunch of coordinating paper to layer on the side for this page and cut off the extra to do the lettering and layering on the page. The letters were cut using Cuttin' Up.

I am happy to be posting my projects again and working towards my Summer Goals...but this one really doesn't count because I made it during my scrapbook weekend. I just had not shared it yet! I hope you will visit often this summer while I work on my goals...which now have their own tab!
