climb, slide.....


play together! For this page I used a sketch from the SCS sketch challenge forum. It was a fun sketch to play with and it came together so quickly. It seems that I can't make a SB page these days without a cluster of goodies in one of the corners. It funny how you try something, think it works and stick with it! I'm OK with that it gets me so many more pages done. I am skipping around a bit these days so I won't 12 pages in row that look identical, they will be spread out through the album....I hope!

One thing I am trying is to get better at combining fonts for my titles. This one works for me, but it wasn't exactly what I was going for. I see so many great pages with a mixture of fonts and textures and I just love it. So that's one of the things I'm working on right now. I also struggle with the actual title sometimes, so I have taken to keeping a notebook with me to write down littl things that come to me. I was at the park the other day with J&J and while they were swinging on the tire swing Jor screamed "There's a butterfly in my tummy"! I wrote it down thinking it would be a great title for this page. I'm also going to sit down with a bunch of pictures and jot down some journaling ideas for them. That way when I sit down to scrap them I can take some time off by having that part already done. I figured I could do it while the kids are playing, or while I'm waiting for them at one of their many events. Thats it for today. Hope it's a great one!

Nice layout! I like the colours you chose. The combination green-orange is really great.
