Tuesday Talk

A scrapbook page today, which is my greatest crafting love, but sadly gets far less response from blogland than my cards.

I used the tic-tac-toe board from 1,2,3 Get Scrappy for this layout - going straight across the middle - red, yellow, blue.


Even for me this is a very clean, simple, pared down page with loads of white space - well it's blue space really - but you know what I mean.  I've probably mentioned before that the photo always takes priority on my pages with journalling a close second.  Although I love to add embellishments and use patterned papers I never want them to overshadow or distract from the photo. Hey, that's just my style!

I absolutely adore this photo of my youngest - at the moment - grandson, emailed to me by my son.  I almost can't bear that he's looking so grown up after a whole year at school, but so far he's retained all of his pre-school character and his spirit - that's the loudness - has yet to be squashed!

Papers: Bazzill Basics blue card; doodlebug, kraft in color
Alphas: Lilybee designs, pinwheel
Stickers:  Lilybee designs, pinwheel
