I was all over the place with this one! I had pinned this for inspiration http://pinterest.com/pin/117445502752273291/ and new I wanted to use it in a layout somehow.
This week's blog challenge was monochromatic and I knew I wanted black/grey/white of some form. I played around with patterned paper and so many variations until I had an "epiphany" that a scrapbook page didn't have to have patterned paper, stitching, stickers, etc. So I took a photo that told a story by itself. My oldest brave, out in the ocean, and my youngest (in the foreground) staying close to mom but still having fun.
Thanks Stephanie for the challenge this week! It pushed me to do something different!
