Project 365 Week 2 - Diet & Exercise

I'll admit it; I'm a Theme Girl. I just can't stop myself from organizing my scrapbooking around themes.  So I'm finding myself snapping photos each week concentrating on a particular activity without even meaning to.  Last week was mostly food with a little exercise thrown in - just so we sound somewhat healthy.  This week I'm already on a winter gardening kick. 

Diet (really???) & Exercise is a one page layout - a rarety for me in our scrapbook.  I also did something really unusual for me in that the photos are teany tiny - about 1 1/2" high.  For some reason, I always scrapbook photos big enough to see from across the room.  These show up just fine on the page and are plenty big enough.  I mean, do we really need to see every crumb of my homemade bread?  These sizes worked for my recipe card style layout.  It has a lot of designer paper but I really love it.  Perhaps it is because these are my favorite colors or maybe because there is a fair amount of white space around the photos given the details.

Once again I cut letters with my Cricut using both the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and the SCAL software.  Before sewing, I adhered and trimmed all the pattern paper to a large scrap piece of cardstock for the frame.  There is no stamping at all on this layout, not a bit of ink.  Surprisingly, I'm not going through distressing withdrawal.

Thanks for stopping by.  Come back tomorrow for TIPsy Tuesday.
