On a New Path



This should probably say "A New, Old Path."  Last year when I started having sciatica problems, I had to switch from our town's park trail, which I love but is a natural, hilly surface, to our local elementary school paved trail.  The school trail is level and close to home.  An even bigger plus is that my husband started going with me.  His work is picking up and he has less and less free time. We took a little walk together yesterday, in fact.  And I was back at the park some late last year, thankfully.

Now onto the design...

Last week, Sue at suealthouse.com posted a great layout on her blog using several visual triangles.  See the layout here.   Often I do triangles, too.  Lately though I've been doing a lot of corner to corner embellishments to draw the eye across the page.

This page came together very quickly. I'm definitely not a speedy scrapper so when I can complete a page in one sitting it's rare.  Things that made this page go fast:


  • Using product all from one line - in this case it was Simple Stories' Harvest Lane. Even the die cut flowers are from 'b' sides from these papers.
  • Handwritten journaling - another rarity for me.
  • One type of 'Thickers' for the title - these are Basic Grey chipboard
  • Washi tape for embellishment.  I can't think of anything faster than tearing off a few strips of Washi to finish a page.
So most of my pages won't go this fast but it was rewarding to finish a page up quickly and move onto the next one which took me all weekend, but we really won't get into that right now. :-) 

Hope you have a wonderful Monday!  Thanks for stopping by,.

  1. Nice layout. It takes me forever to complete a layout, no matter how simple I think it is.
    So nice that your husband will go on a walk with you. Its always nicer to walk with a partner.
