A Page Completed

It's taken probably a month, but I did actually finish a layout last night. This brings our grand total for this year to 4 pages done, which actually doubles last year's output. Pathetic? Yes. Miraculous? Also yes.

Boring details: yellow paper is from Two Busy Moms from my stash and is ages old. The orange is Scenic Route, I think, maybe? It was in my scrap pile. Foam stamps are MM, paint is cheap stuff from Michael's. I had a thought to sponge ink over the letters and emboss with clear embossing powder and then the rational, lazy part of my brain took over and it didn't happen. Ribbon is Carolee's Creations, I think. Font is Whackadoo, which isn't really all that important, but I just like saying Whackadoo.

When coming up with this color scheme, I knew I wanted to use the yellow and blue from the high chair but wanted to add a third color. I googled "online color wheel" and played at a couple of the sites that came up. One suggested the orange which I liked. This definitely isn't my favorite page ever, but the fact that I got another one done is pretty huge and I like it enough to not want to redo it. That's definitely good enough these days.

I love your page. I love your color choices and YES the fact that it's just another one done too. That always helps. I wish I could scrap more too but there's always something in the way-someone needs clean clothes, the kids want to eat, the bills need paid, etc.....I guess eventually I might get all these millions of pix I keep taking scrapped until then I am just enjoying the ones I do get into albums. Again love this page-love the pix but most of all I love your journaling which gave me a peek into your memories.

Thanks to everyone for the lovely comments. It's sad how surprised you all were that I actually got a page done. Hopefully it won't be so long before I finish another.

Loreluca, welcome to my madness. It's always nice to have another reader. It makes the echo a little quieter when I hit "Publish."
