Just Be

When all else fails, Just Be You!

Scrappin' in Patterson group had a color challenge (teal, lime green, brown and coral) and this is the layout I came up with.  This paper was bought when Carly and I went to the It's Scrapbook Time crop two weekends ago and I knew it'd be perfect for this color challenge.  The photos are Jori's first day of kindergarten, which I thought the words on the paper were perfect for that too.

Sorry the photo is so dark...
Is this any better?

There wasn't much to this layout.  I got the idea of the cluster from an ad for a scrapbooking kit club.  The spiro-graph looking circles are a stamp set from Stampin' Up.  I cut the pennants from scrap papers, glued down some buttons in the middle of some flowers and viola!  Easy peasy layout!

The "Just Be" stamp is from an old, old set of Stampin' Up.  I was going to do some journaling in the white space and I just happened to look up at my "word" stamps and I saw that and knew it'd be perfect.  I'll leave the journaling to Marlene. happy, be funny, be original, be true, be simple, be different, be strong, be honest, be joyful...but more importantly, just be.
