Clean & Simple Challenge #5

Happy Monday! I actually don't mind Mondays because they are my day off. Therefore, I don't suffer from the "Sunday Blues" if you will. I wonder why on Monday night I don't suffer from the "Tuesday Blues?" Mind over Matter I guess? huh? So... I started the Clean & Simple challenge #5 yesterday and I finished it today. Like I always say it is very challenging for me to not use up all that space on my red background paper. Another challenge I have is not mounting my photos. I felt my photo was too lost with this pattern paper so I couldn't resist adding a mat to it. I love this picture of my son. I still remember how beautiful this day was last summer. And for sure the perfect day for kite flying. It is usually too windy here in chicago to fly a kite so when the weather is right you have to take advantage of it! Boy did we have fun with the kite that day. I remember we left it in the ground (the spool holing the kite string that is) and we just let it fly like that for hours. I am going to have to do another kite layout showing some great action shots of ben flying the kite and my husband is in there also. But the photos of the kite and the clear sky are to die for. Anyways, here is the layout i did for the challenge. Some key supplies are the kite paper ( so perfect) is from adorn it (carolee's creations) the felt arrow was made using my CB and an arrow die. The felt flower is Martha Stewart. The felt photos corners are from a kit i got from little red scrapbook but i think they are from la-de-da. I've had the clipboard for a long time so not sure who the heck made that one. The ribbon, buttons and spiral notebook and corner rounder punches are from SU. I have to mention them of course! :) Anyways, enough of that! Thanks again to Jennifer for another great sketch! I can't believe I have 4 layouts done so far and it is only April! That is more layouts than I have done in the past 4 years! LOL! Thanks for looking!
