Park day!

Hello there!  Are you a double page spread kind of scrapper or do you prefer to stick to a single page?  I think I prefer a single page layout, but I find that since I take so many pictures that I often spill over on to two pages!
  
On that 2 page note, I have another 2 page spread of one of our adorable grands to share with you today!  He is such a fun kid!  He is so full of energy and wide open!  Here he is playing at the park one day:

I kept the design simple and pulled the colors from his outfit.  I mimicked the design from one page to the next though to keep that feeling of flow happening.  I sponged the edges of the patterned papers and matted the photos against white, so that they would stand out.  I embossed the long gray strips and added a tiny stitched scalloped border. I stamped the background with one of my favorite  splatter stamps.

I used both the Chevron pieces and the negative piece for a fun visual (one on each page!).  I cut out the letters in green and gray and off set them just enough to give them a shadow effect.  I repeated the long strip and splatter stamp process on this page for continuity.  I will probably go back in later and add some journaling. It is so true that pictures tell a story, but a written reminder is also a nice touch!

Today is a great day to make a scrapbook page!!  What are you waiting for?  Start small, start simple!  grab a photo and some of your favorite supplies and get your scrap on!!

I hope that you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soon with lots more to share!
