Thanks for taking a peek. Until the next post...
And, if you ever have a chance to go to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party - go for it!
I did however, get enough pictures to show Nico's personality on the field. His bossiness, his tenacity and his lack of fear. He wasn't afraid, but every time he went head to head with a child who was clearly a foot taller and double his weight, I cringed. Nico reminded me of a chihuahua trying to run with the big dogs.
I love these mediocre shots and wanted to use them all. That's where the idea of the grid came from. I went all the way across the two pages and then decided to plant the huge blue star on the side as a bold splash of color and form. It's simple, clean and to the point.
Happy Easter everyone! Here are a few shots from Easter morning. This is Nico following the bunny trail.
The Easter bunny leaves a trail of little nests all over our house. That sneaky, messy bunny! Nico loves this and it's my favorite Easter tradition.
I posted these pictures of Nico snow sledding for the first time not so long ago. So it seems appropriate in a weird way to post them today, on a beautiful 70-degree Spring day. Goodbye to winter and goodbye to sledding - it was fun!
This page ended up nothing like I had planned. First, I thought it would be a 2-page spread but I didn't have enough really great different photos for that. Then I wanted to use the snowman paper from My Mind's Eye except there was something about the powder blue color that I wasn't crazy about. So I threw in a few shades of aqua (surprise, surprise) and some bright orange. The color of the sled really determined the choice of blue to balance it out.
I think that the title is my favorite part of the entire layout. I used two swirls from Cosmo Cricket and connected them with a giant snowflake in the middle. This gave me room for a long title. One short swirl tucked behind a picture gave me a place to hang the cute mittens from.
