Another take on the grid...and this is probably my very favorite of them all. So much I really enjoyed about this page. It just very simply came together and it draws me in everytime. Don't you love when your own creativity brings you great satisfaction.

First of all the grid-non-grid, as I call it. This is still very much a grid layout, with a twist. It's not linear. Now usually that is all that I am...linear. But when I started to play with different sized photos and different size frames, it just made me do a little happy dance while I was in the moment.

Let's talk about the palette for a moment, shall we? Glad you agree. Very neutral with an awesome pop of gold and even orange with that Pink Paislee Switchboard paper used as the layouts mat. It just made the whole thing pop. Other elements from Switchboard as well as frames from Pink Paislee and Maggie Holmes opened up some new elements for me for sure.

This page is highlighting a few fun moments from this 4 year old's birthday. It was a such a fun, fun night with family and friends from near and far. We had so much fun. I was tickled once again that now these memories are encased in a layout that makes me very happy.

This part of the layout is purely Wilna. She used a smallish size photo inside a larger frame. Stamped on the watercolor paper and of course that die cut is all her too. I love it!

I hope this page inspired you a little bit to think outside the grid. I think just doing something different, and then it actually working, gives one a whole lot of energy.

In fact, I am energized right now...off to go make more fun stuff.

Till next time.
