I was POWERLESS to resist...

I simply *had* to scrap this image!

HAD TO.

I haven't scrapped in awhile, so, while this page is pretty simple, it took about 3 hours, LOL! Because I had to find *just the right* kit to use, so I got all distracted looking thru my entire collection of digi supplies! I was determined to use something with RED in it - but in the end, I couldn't make it work with one pink t-shirt and one red t-shirt. GRRRRR!

So I went neutral - with this rich chocolate brown (mmm CHOCOLATE!) and some khaki and peach flowers, and just a tiny hint of spring green.

I think it works!

My inspiration is from THIS POST from ksharonk. She is one of my favorite digi designers - I love her clean style - the focus is on the photos! I liked how she used one photo, and scaled it to be the entire width of the page.

That is such a fun photo, and a great page. I often get sidetracked looking for just the right supplies as well, but when the page turns out like this it is worth it.
