Old School

While at a crop a few weekends ago with my friends, Carma and Karen, I was able to put some pictures on several layouts I had created over the years but had never finished the story. This is a Cherish layout featuring Game On (this is a retired paper pack, but you can still find the kit and all the embellishments on Studio J). When I first saw this sports kit, my first thought was: Great. I don't do sports. As you know, I am a big fan of thinking outside of the box, so my second thought was: Let's fix this!

First, I began seeing the stars B&T as the night sky. Beacause of the darkness, I thought New England Ivy would be a great "land" color. While perusing the idea books and pattern book, I ran across the idea of the landscape with torn cardstock. This layout just seemed to POP for me! The funny thing is I originally thought of it as a camping page, but could never find the right pictures to go with it.

Then, when searching through my old layouts, I ran across these pictures of the Kamas Fiesta Days Demolition Derby. I'd had them printed several years ago and they were mostly 3-1/2" x 5" prints. Some of them had already been cut into shapes, which made them difficult to fit on another page. This layout features photo wells for smaller pictures and it was perfect for my smaller prints.

Warm wishes,
