Somethin' Fishy's Goin' On!

So yesterday was my birthday and I decided to work on a layout just for DT projects or challenges.  I must admit it took me a while, because I had to stop and start about 20 times, but it finally got finished before I went to bed last night.  I've gotten in the very bad habit lately of working on current photos and leaving older ones without back to April of 2011.  So I am going to try and start making myself get some of those older photos scrapped.

These pictures are from September, when the kids went to a nature class at our local Nature Resource center.  The instructors took the kids out and caught tons of minnows in nets and then dumped them on the pier for the kids to see.  Mine, of course loved picking them up, and throwing them back in the water.  I didn't get great pictures, because for some reason I only had my phone with me that day.  My favorite photo is the one with all of the kids' heads over the bucket.  They we so interested in what those fish were doing in that bucket.  I used a mix of Echo Park papers on this page, from the Sweet Summertime, Splash, and A Walk in the Park collections.

And just a fun sidenote:  That journaling tag is from a t-shirt that I got for my birthday!  You can find scrappy supplies everywhere if you look hard enough!!  :)

I worked on three layouts this weekend, and while they were all for DT work using kits, I had compelete freedom, no sketch, no challenge criteria, simply create using the was fabulous!!
