This layout here is the last of the five new layouts I created a few weeks back. I'm pretty sure the only reason I was able to create 5 layouts in just a few days time, was because I took two days off work. Since I haven't created anything since. In fact, I do have a few projects that I need to make in the next week or so, and I'm struggling. It's like I forgot how to scrap, where to start, etc. The product just sits there and I keep shoving papers around and getting no where. Wish me luck on that :)
Anyways. This ended up being a pretty basic layout. I had come across these photos of Sarah a while back and created this super quick photo collage. These were taken while doing one of our "photo shoots" several years ago. And yes, these were taken AFTER getting the good shots. As we were leaving, we wandered past a baseball field and Sarah decided to go through the motions of a complete, imaginary softball game. I guess she was reliving her youth, as she played softball for several years when she was younger. She pitched, batted, caught a fly ball, fielded a grounder, kept score, and even cheered in the stands. I love her goofy ways!
I chose the "afternoon" title from Kerri Bradford's Today kit. Except I made it thicker. I love handwritten words, but every now and then I find that some of them are a bit to thin for what I need. Kerri did a video tutorial on how to do this, which you can view HERE. I spent way more time than was necessary looking for alpha stickers to complete my title. I wasn't even thrilled with what I did pick, but I did finally settle on something.
I made a very teeny tiny dent in my massive button collection to embellish the right side of the photo collage. I pulled the colors from the striped patterned paper along the bottom of the page.
This text patterned paper is a really old paper from October Afternoon. I own quite a few sheets of it, as I was slightly addicted to it several years ago. I threw on the chipboard banner pieces at the last minute, as the top of the page needed a little something. All in all, a very simple page. Which is always a nice change of page every now and then.
