Must Have Been The Wings!

I've gotten a bit behind in getting my pages to my blog...ooops! The one below was featured on the Scraptastic blog last week, but it's one of my favorites, and I have to share it. What I really love about this kind of page is that it takes very little planning. I had an idea and simply dove in! All these scraps were hanging around my desk, and instead of sorting and storing, or throwing them away, I decided to put them to use as little flags on a trio of banners running from one side of the page to the other.

The only problem with not planning, was that I couldn't find a place that I liked for my title. A little one here or a large one there...nope, they just didn't work. The solution: no title...or at least no obvious title. In my mind, the title is those last few words of my journaling: Must Have Been The Wings! No need to repeat it elsewhere on the page, right?!

The photo was taken as my son and I enjoyed lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings. We had been at a swim meet in Baton Rouge, and were trying to bide our time between prelims finals. He had a great morning swim, besting his time in the 100 fly. When we returned to the pool later that afternoon, he dropped 4 more seconds when he swam the event again. It was an awesome day, and I journaled about it in looping lines right above each banner.

Yep, it must have been the wings. It does make perfect sense since he was swimming butterfly!
