Title Author Description


     Our second challenge for August was to use Husk grid paper and Pattern #14, which uses sixteen 2 x 2 squares and 1" border all around.  In addition, the element option I chose was to use clear stamps.

     My son and grandson recently went zip lining for the first time when our family was on our annual trip--this time to Branson, Missouri.  Of course, I went along and took the best shots I could capture--which wasn't very easy, considering the fact that I was on the ground, and they were way up there "zipping" past!  I really wanted to do something special with those mediocre pictures, so I decided to use them in this project.

     I first did the second page (except for the border), which uses Pattern #14.  The picture which I wanted to be the focal point was the closeup of Paul and Brock right before they climbed up the tower, so I placed it in the bottom center of the first page and matted it in a rust color to match Brock's shorts.  Then I placed the rest of the pics. 

     It was difficult finding a print for the fill-ins and the border, but I finally decided on a multicolored leaf print.  Then I stamped the "Life . . " saying directly on the sky picture on page one.  Each corner of the second page is stamped.  They say (appropriately, I believe) "Spread your wings," "Embrace each moment," "Love your life," and "Create you own fun."

     My examples didn't show up as clearly as usual; don't know what the problem was, but the originals are very clear.  Sorry.  I hope you can see them well enough to enjoy them.

     As usual, my primary desire is that Paul and Brock are pleased and enjoy having this layout as part of their scrapbook memory collection (which has been mostly created by you-know-who!).

As per usual, you've created a wonderful mosaic of a family moment! Your son and grandson will love this memory more and more as the years go by.

It's great you were able to capture all of that! I like the pictures moving across the page!

Again, you have made the viewer feel the motion on the page! Great technique!! I can only imagine how you felt watching your son and grandson on the zip line!! My stomach would have been in knots!

The colors in this layout work really well. I love the leaf paper. I bet Paul & Brock had a blast & will remember it every time they see these pages. I can't believe how much Paul looks like Phillip. I had to take a second look!

Looks like so much fun! I love how you created a big picture with the 2x2 squares in the center of the page.

Love, Love, Love it! And am really enjoying the paper! Think I have seen it somewhere recently. :)

Zip lining has always sounded like such a fun thing to've captured some of the excitement of dangling over treetops...what a view that must have been for them! I like the progress of the drop across the sky in your layout and the overall view of the area. The stamps are a perfect match for the theme, and a daring move to stamp directly on the photo! I like that the title page reflects some of the same elements of the pattern page. Great Job!

Excellent choice for this page pattern - I like the way the zipliners show motion and the bridge spans across several pics. Very cool!
