11/24/13 - "Pick-a-Tree"

Happy Sunday!
Well it's almost least here it is. 
I started this layout yesterday but didn't get to finish it until today because I went out to a hockey game last night. Our team lost, but it was a lot a fun anyway! My favorite part? The fights! There were 2 of them and I really get into them! LOL!
Okay, enough about hockey here's my layout:
"Pick-a-Tree '13"
(I just noticed you can't really see my daughter photobombing the picture of my son and! One of the drawbacks of printing out your pictures in a smaller size. I may go back and add an arrow pointing her out)

I used this sketch from "My Scraps and More":

I realize it doesn't look exactly like the sketch... in fact I can imagine you're thinking that it doesn't look anything like it. Well I admit it's loosely based on the sketch. I fully intended to follow it more closely but, as I'm sure you've experienced, my layout took on a life of it's own!

I used the following elements of the original to create my layout:
> 4 small pictures
> A horizontal strip of paper
> A verticle strip of paper
> A tag
> A circle embellie
> Arrow embellies

The layout didn't turn out the way I planned it, but it's okay, I love it anyway!
After all, not all good things in life happen because of planning...a lot of them are just happy surprises!
Here's hoping you have many happy surprises and a great rest-of-the day!
