More layouts from the crop...

Just a reminder that the Sketchy Thursdays design contest is still going--there are a few hours left--go here if you'd like to vote for me!

I finished up what I started last weekend. Here's one of my summer goals, a mini I started long ago:
I have done lots of LOs with numbers, but none with grammar. I'm an English teacher, so wondered if grammar would inspire anything in me, and it did.

I'm still working on the Christmas mini, which is my other goal for the summer. I hope to finish it soon so I can submit it for a mini-album call.

My friend Chelsie has this t-shirt, which I am so envious of. (I should get it...) Anyway, the Weasley twins remind me of my boys. So sweet looking, but such imps.

So when I saw this photo of my younger boy from last year's vacation, that phrase popped into my head, and a layout was born. (Note: I have scrapped this photo at least two other times. Do I care? No. New story, so that's OK.)I used the color combination from The Color Room:
I wasn't trying to make it look magical, but I like how snaky the color combo is, and the stars and waves make it a little magical.

Another LO from this weekend:
I used Studio Calico's July kit for this. The story isn't so much the photo as how my boys are whenever I take photos. Win awards for my nonblurry photos I will not. They will always be blurry because of these two. But that's them. (Or is it they? I think I broke a grammar rule.)

Jennifer -

I'm thinking of stealing your idea and turning it into a first week of school activity for my freshmen. I think it would be a great "get to know you" as well as a quick reminder of grammar. Could I possibly get your text from this??? I can't quite make it all out. Feel free to email me or you can send me a msg. on the CK blog - I'm cropmom78 or I have a blog - I'd love to have some more examples to start with!

Amazing LOs. Love what you did with the kit. And great mini book! I've never gotten around to finishing one of those... .
