"Olympic Center" layout

Happy Monday dear friends. This week is my kids' Spring break. I'm a bit envious of them as my break from school is not till two weeks from today and I'm getting a little burnt out that I catch myself counting down the days. I've never had that feeling before. Any advice, especially from those that have juggled school and family life?

This week I'm loading this blog with a layout share every day. I haven't done that in a while and I hope all or some of my pages will inspire you as other blogs do for me. 

This first one was based off of a sketch from Sketches in Thyme blog. 


As my 'one little word' for this year is SUFFICIENT, I wanted to dive into some of my scraps for the next few layouts. I feel that I have "enough" scraps to last me a lifetime (or two) and they need to be addressed. I loved how this sketch allowed me to add an array of various paper strips, in different widths, to the background. 

I even cut out my blocks for title and journaling from paper. To make my photos stand out, I matted them onto white cardstock.

I added just a few more embellishments to dress up the page. The background was already busy to I didn't do lots of layering like I do most of the time.

I thought the "geotag" symbol was appropriate for this travel themed page.

Thanks for stopping by.

Till next time,
Grace
