life in toronto

when i bought the whole set of webster's pages wonderfall collection with a friend last year, i told her we were going to do a 6" x 12" album.  i was sure then that i was going to do a four seasons theme books.  time passed...the stash wasn't forgotten, just put aside.

a few weeks ago, i saw my lovely niece's photo album on facebook.  she called it life in toronto.  immediately, i snatched a few pictures from the album and sent for my wonderfall stash.  i knew what i wanted to do that night; the big bang theory season 3 and life in toronto.

the sign board is still missing a couple of elements, still on their way.  the roof—the medusa roof—is rather overdone for my liking, but what's done is done.

tara is coming home next week for a short summer break and  i was going to surprised her with the gift.  i ended up telling her about this when i asked her for the better quality images.  last week i saw she made a scrap page version of life in toronto.'s a gazebo explotion box!

 i figured that the inside wall should be able to stand alone.

in the beginning i placed a standing easel with a canvas in the middle.  beautiful; but has nothing to do with tara.  then i thought of a piano; nothing to do with her life in toronto.  i ordered a gazebo with a switchable lamp post from ebay; a tad too bulky.  

i finally settled with the fountain of happiness...ha!

i'll keep it dear to my heart until her safe return.

Thanks for the scrapbook auntie :D I can't wait to actually see it. I want to be able to bring it back, but i think it would get smooshed on the luggage.

Also congratulations on getting featured on Webster! You deserve it!
