Kind of a grid.....

I really like the look of a grid design, but perfect squares are just not for me! When I block everything off I like to make my "grids" more off center. Some blocks longer some short, some skinny, some that look like a flag/banner!

For this layout I really wanted to emphasize the flag piece at the top, so I rounded all the other corners of the grid. I used my usual color scheme (aqua, yellow and white) but threw in a bit of green too. Since the journal card that I used had a black word on it, I needed to balance the rest of the layout, so I used a black heart paperclip with the black and white brads near the photo to bring your eye down and across the photo. I cut my title out using my Silhouette Cameo. For the tag piece, I stamped the saying (which happens to be the name of my blog ;) ) and the cute arrows across the bottom. To break the grid look up a little more, I layered a sticker and chipboard piece above and below the gridwork to give it a little movement and depth. I just love the texture of that woodgrain background cardstock!!

This is one of my favorite photos of my kids altogether being silly - even my son has a fake moustache over his real one!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!! :)


  1. Fabulous layout and I love the grid you've created!

  2. I like your off-centered, lower on the page grid - really gives a sense of movement. Awesome photo too :)
