For some reason, I hadn't visited Color Me Scrappy in a while. Glad I went to check it out today, the colors for this challenge were great, and just what I needed after doing a dark, brownish layout for a previous challenge. Nice and bright. You're book marked now!
I, of course, had the perfect paper pad. This one was an "expecting baby" theme from Paper Studios, that I had used to make a onesie banner for my cousin's baby shower and would work perfect for this challenge. The twist was to use wood. I am IN LOVE with all of the wood chips thing going on these days. No, seriously, I can't get enough of them. Look at these of the 50 U.S. states... I mean, awesome. Yes, I had to google some of them, especially some of those tiny northeastern states.
The "Good Times" wood call-out shape I think is from Studio Calico as well or maybe Maya Road - anyway, love it whichever made it. For more wood, I used little wooden frames directly on the photo and accented with a little flower and pearl.
My journaling had issues this time. First the gel pen stopped working in the middle of the second line, then I made an typo towards the middle and had to scratch over... well - that is what makes it homemade right?
These pics are from the trip my sister, my son and I took to San Francisco. Good times, good times.
