I think God was bored today and needed to mess with me. Truly. At least as far as crafting was concerned.

I was very excited, because I finished photographing and preparing photographs for an upcoming online garage sale (stay tuned!)... and let me tell you, it was a purging of this room... I was finally in the scrapbooking groove, and I had time to let the groove take me. Alas, my computer, printer, and scanner all wanted to mess with me.

The layout you see here {four hours later and NOT due to the difficulty of the page itself} is mounted on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of SU! Not Quite Navy. The photos are from Christmas day, when Max first laid eyes on his new train table. I fell in love with the Making Memories Fa La La shimmer alphabet stickers at The Keepsake Element in town (see link on page).

I took Cathy's Sketch #1 from Week 6 (yes, it's Week 12 now), and, as she would say, I "worked it." Her sketch was oriented in portrait, and I rotated it to landscape. I wanted the picture of Max to be the focal point, despite the fact that it is pretty grainy. So, here's to working the sketch!
Week 6 focused on unity. Cathy's sketch dealt with grouping elements together creating a sense on "one-ness." Here, the 4 x 6 photo in the center anchors the other two photos (diagonal from each other) and the two text areas (diagonal from each other). It was hard not to incorporate other elements that I have learned from weeks 7-12, as I HAVE watched the slideshows and videos. I just need to create the pages. With Cathy's clean and simple design elements, it won't be too hard... provided technology is on my side.
