So, yeah, it's snowing. Big, fat, water-logged flakes are raining down. My car has been covered in more than two inches of the fluffy stuff since I parked it, a mere two hours ago.
It's a definite contrast to the super sunny, almost summer day represented on the layout below. I completed this layout a few weeks ago during my crop outing. I used a sketch from the PageMaps class that I took; I'm pretty sure it was from Week One. I paired the photos with Echo Park's A Perfect Summer, which was released in 2013. The photos are the real Throw Back though with a 2006 date on them. Look at my little monkeys, who are all teenagers now. *sob*
I wanted something to fill the space above the photo on the left. I couldn't find anything that worked. You know, until I deemed the page complete, and then I found a photo that would have been perfect had I had it when I started laying out the page. Finding it at the end, when I'm done, I couldn't get it to fit - the scale of the whole layout needed to be just a bit bigger - of course.
I'm debating whether to scan it and shrink it or just be done. Right now, it's just done and frankly it'll in all likelihood stay this way. I have a real issue with going back to pages that are incomplete, which is why they get done the night I do them or they stay like this one probably will - finished with good intentions.
