Jumping Beans is what I have around here these days.
This is an instagram photo from the first day my mom and I put the Coonkids trampoline together. I kid you not, they jumped for 7 hours straight that day! I was beginning to wonder about their well being by the end of the day! I mean, is jumping that much in one day healthy?
If you have followed me for a while here at the paperlife, you can see my style is evolving, I am such a trend watcher and follower of home decor and fashion and the trend I am loving right now is CLEAN! Monochromatic, and soft! I actually call it "dreamy"
One thing will always stay true to me though, and that is, my layouts are my love-notes and letters to my kids and those I love. That is how I always have and will think of scrapbooking, a place for my journaled love-notes to those who matter to me. So even though I hate my handwriting, its real, and real is me.
It was hard to get them to show up well on camera but I LOVE the opalescent sequins I found on the white background, I wish I could do it "in person" justice on here. And gold! oh how I am in love with white, sugary soft colors, and GOLD right now!
One last thing about this one I want to mention is the "feel" of movement I tried to achieve with my design. I placed key elements in 3's all over the page to make you eye travel. I wanted to get the "feel" of JUMP suggested to the viewers eye without literally putting a dotted bouncing ball pattern or something on the layout. That is fine but, just not me, I always try to achieve my theme in a much more sophisticated "suggestive" Way. this was also done by putting the cut labels on either side of the layout edge to suggest movement continuing on! Hope you like it! You can find a gallery of my stuff at Studio Calico which is where I have been hanging out since you last saw me!
Thanks for coming to check on my Paperlife! See you real soon with something new from our neck of the woods! (and thats a literal statement, we really do live in the woods! HAH!)
