I went straight in for a layout to begin with.
A reasonably simple one I admit, at least in terms of putting it together, but I find that's my general direction of layouts these days. Plus, I do love a big photo.
To make it a bit more interesting I decided to print my photo directly onto one of the more neutral patterned papers. I wasn't quite sure if the leaf pattern might leave crazy spots on our faces and obscure the clarity, but I think it worked out reasonably ok.
I then added little clusters of colour to jazz it up. And when I got adventurous I decided to try out the bow die on one of the acetate cards and made myself a little tab to go at the top.
Occasionally, just occasionally I get these ideas where even I have to admit 'that's pretty cool' and that's what happened when the idea for turning one of the ombre tags into a kite struck me. And then the bows from the sticker sheet as ribbons? Yep, I was on fire for a brief moment! ;-)
Now the kite flying layout was designed to sit opposite this Project Life page which I then made next.
It was quite an adventurous day and I had plenty of photos from the event that needed to get scrapped. I always find the pocket pages much better suited for that purpose.
The whole family got involved in the kite flying excitement and The Trophy Husband summed it up nicely when he exclaimed "this is stupidly simple fun"!! I knew in that very instant that I had the title for the page I was going to create. Sometimes you just can't knock the scrapper out of a person, even in the heat of the moment!
I ended up making a few more projects with all my Happy Things. But I'll save them for another night.
Or go here. And see them all now :-)
