Peaceful Moment Digi Layout


Hi there!
I finished this layout yesterday, but didn't get a chance to post it until now. My internet connection is getting wonky again (don't know if it's the heat or what) which is a bit of a pain. I had to reset it again this afternoon just so I could get online. Sigh.

The temperature gauge in my car said 101 when we left the swimming pool this afternoon. Yep, we were there again. LOL Today is supposed to be the hottest day yet of the season and after a morning where the girls made some tough choices while decluttering their room with me, I figured they'd earned being able to go to cool off. We took at least 4 large bags (the dark garden kind) to the Goodwill on our way to lunch at the school. I think they are kind of relieved to have gotten rid of some of their excess, to be honest.

Back to the layout. This is one of my favorite photos from this trip. I chose to use a Kay Miller Designs kit called Peaceful Moments and another Cindy Schneider template. I like the "feel" I was able to achieve. And get this...on the NitwitCollections blog, Mary Fran shared that she has designed a kit that is fishing themed! Whoo hooo! I have more fishing pictures to scrap, so I'm going to hold off until she releases that kit. You can see her hybrid card sample here. I think it's gonna be a winner for sure!

That's it from me today. Hope you're having a good one!

I can see why you love this photo. It's beautiful! And so is your layout. Love the green and blue.

101 degrees is a bit hot for my tastes. I might actually prefer the frozen tundra to temperatures like that. After all, I can layer the clothes on, but there is only so much I can take off. LOL.

After decluttering (particularly in that heat) the girls deserved an outing. Good for you!

Have a good Wednesday, sweet friend!

Jeanne,
It's a GREAT photo! Yes, she looks so happy and relaxed - the light is wonderful, the scene idyllic. Your layout is awesome and really enhances the photo - EXCELLENT work!

I'm sorry you've had such blistering weather! I'm glad you are such a GOOD MOM and take your girls to swim and cool off! It's great exercise and a perfect reward for their hard work.

Hugs!
