A Different Look

Believe it or not, this page was crafted using the same Scraptastic kit that produced the layout in yesterday's blog post. I love the very different looks I can get with one kit. Here I left out everything that had red in it (even cutting the My Mind's Eye plaid so that the red stripe was absent). The result is a very calming color scheme and perfect for these beach pics of my youngest son. The candid photo on top tickles me. After a wet morning in the gulf, he's probably licking the salt off his lips!


As you can see, I'm still having fun with banners. This time I combined tickets cut from the patterned paper with various banner shapes and adhered them to baker's twine before attaching to the page.


Yes, now I'm remembering that white sand, clear water, salt air, and the sound of the surf. Is it only April? Summer is too far away!
