Dr. QT Pie


Sometimes it just happens - all the right pieces fall into exactly the right places. That's what happened with this layout. I sat down with the January sketch for Di Hickman's blog and literally no idea which photos to scrap. I shuffled things around on my desk with the sketch in mind and had to find photos that were different sizes but of the same topic. When I dug these out of the envelope the mojo started working.

This layout is pretty different for me. There's white space for one and no fibers. (Stop laughing, Celeste.) I even managed to sew all over it without having to cover up any accidents. Yes, there are the obvious Basic Grey touches of paper and alphas, but for me that's pretty restrained. I had a really fun time making this layout. I just hope I can get out of my little scrapping box to do it again.
