Wild and free

I started out the month on a roll with my scrapping, but with the end of school holidays fast approaching, I've been so busy catching up on "stuff" that creating has taken a back seat.  Today I found some time to put together a simple layout, inspired by two different challenges.

I used sketch #113 at Feeling Sketchy:

I was also inspired by the Clear Up theme at The Studio Challenges. A few months ago I ordered a bunch of enlargements to take advantage of a photo printing special, and the packet has been sitting on my desk ever since. I also used up some more of my old Pink Paislee stash:

The quote is from Desiderata, the famous poem by Max Ehrmann.  The photograph was taken at Bald Rock National Park.

Kaisercraft Prairie Lane - Fairview patterned paper
Pink Paislee Queen Bee - Bees Wax patterned paper
Pink Paislee Spring Fling - Rain Showers patterned paper
My Minds Eye Jubilee - Mint Julep -Wild flair
Feather charm (from a Scrapbook Fantasies embellishment pack)
Cre8tiv embellishment stickers
Bakers twine
