Big Ideas

I've been busy cutting card and club kits, and it's also tax time.  It's been crazy with paper in my office!  So for lunch today, I stopped everything in order to create.  I liked the sketch over at Sketch~N~Scrap, so I wanted to take the time to use it.  


My husband loves to fish.  In fact, this is the time of the year that he gets really antsy because spring just isn't coming fast enough.  I took this photo of him at the end of last summer with a couple of great Northern Pike catches.  If you've been reading my blog, you know that he has his own scrapbook down in his man cave, and he truly does love looking through these layouts.  Maybe that's why I find such pleasure in creating them!

Artbooking played a big role on this layout.  The notebook page, paper clips, round arrow, and "big ideas" were all die-cut from that cartridge.  This is paper from Timberline, and I will be using a lot of this for Jerry's book.  Embellishments are from the Timberline Assortment, Wooden Mini Medleys, and Wooden Trinket Shapes.  The alphabets are Tiny Type Epoxy and Keyboard Kraft.

Now it's time for me to get back to work.  But not before telling you that I really appreciate that you stopped by today!

Love it! It is no wonder your husband loves his scrapbook that documents all of his big catches. If only you could document the "ones that got away"!
