Naturally Us

I’ve finally had the moment where I realized that I need to step away from the BasicGrey June Bug! This page started out with Crate Paper and some lovely Cosmo Cricket . . . and then I realized that my color palette wasn’t bright enough. Ack! This was one of those times when following a sketch — and sticking to it — wasn’t helping me out at all. (Though, thank you, Studio Calico for the inspiring and simple layout!) I really didn’t want to journal on this page. I think the title and the photos are enough — I know there are some that would disagree with me on that.

My design rut and journaling obstinacy aside, I love this page. It’s all about Chris and me hiking and being silly in Kolob Canyon, which is a gorgeous place down in Southern Utah, not far from St. George. Our friend Naji took the photos, and I think he did a great job!

And yes, Chris. Those are glitter die-cuts. {wink}

recipe: cardstock: white (bazzill); patterned paper: june bug (basicgrey) and little sprout (crate paper); glitter die-cuts: lillian (crate paper); alphabet stickers: salutations thickers (american crafts); ribbon: american crafts; twine: jute vintage button twine (papertrey ink); pen: micron; circle cutter: coluzzle (provo craft); punches: round tab, scallop edge, spiral, 1/16" circle, and 1-1/4" circle (stampin' up!); stapler and staples

    WOW Kim another Scrap page, I remember when you did your first, not so long ago!!! I love the brightness of the page, it helps with the theme of you guys having fun and it being hot and well it reminds me of a big pineapple on the side which is all summery and delicious!!! Probably not the look you were going for but either way it’s really cool!!
    Smiles SHarnee :0)

    Hi Kim…I enjoyed meeting you at CHA. So, I decided to look you up.

    I’m with you…sometimes a title is all you need. Cute photos. Something about you reminds me of Julia Roberts.
