Adventure.

Hello and good morning...

Hope you are all having a wonderful week. I am sharing with you a layout... yes I just said a layout!! Life has been sooo totally crazy and busy, that I haven't scrapped an ACTUAL page in a couple of months.. So here is my recent layout, which actually felt sooo good to get back to some page scrapping..

It's my turn for Sketches In Thyme sketch # 270. Here's my take on it:


About a year ago, my son and I did a Down and Dirty race, and I LOVED it!! It was super fun, and super a major accomplishment for me. I loved every minute of it.

I used some Echo Park for my page, and fussy cut out these shapes:


Then added my journaling right on the page:


Here is the sketch to play along with:


Hope you get a chance to play along.. Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!
