Amethyst – Layout 9
As I was sifting through the mountain of gorgeous papers and embellishments which are part of today's steal, the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 Collection, I was really drawn to the embellishment in the Rosy collection that says "This is the Good Life." After a somewhat stressful "vacation" this past weekend with the family, I pretty much decided that it would be many years before another family trip should transpire.
But then I got thinking about it a little more. It had been years since we were a complete family on a trip. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, we still managed to more or less have fun. We traveled safe. We stuck to budget. We created some memories which happy ones will hopefully out weigh the stressful ones. In short we have a great family and we have a good life.
That being said I thought it was only fitting to scrap some of the photos from our recent journey to Zion's National Park, and the muted tones of today's steal, really work great with the focus on nature.
I'm always a sucker for the My Mind's Eye embellishments. They can completely turn around a pretty normal page into something with complete pizazz!
And I absolutely love the 4x6 photo overlays. What a simple addition to really add a ton to a layout, without overwhelming it.
And speaking of perfection check out this weeks lucky random winner!
