You Want A Zerbert?

As I prepare this post, I'm sipping my Cinnamon Spice Herbal Tea, the baby is napping, and the older two girls are out playing in the snow!  I love having a quiet moment!  Up here in the Yukon, they often plough the snow into a big pile in the middle of the road (weird, right?), especially on a quiet street.  So my girls have their sleds out in the street where they keep climbing a 12 foot pile of snow and sliding down it!  All the neighbourhood kids are out there taking turns!

I prepared these two pages at the same time.  They are for seperate albums, but I find if I can make the pages similar from photos of a single event, it makes things a lot easier for me!  I found this paper quite a while ago.  A friend and I split the paper pack (remember that day, Karlene?).  The layout is fairly simple.  I tend to keep it simple for my girls' albums.  It was inspired by Allison Davis' sketch found here.  I say "inspired by" because I really didn't follow a lot of the sketch.  I just found that it gave me a good jumping off point in putting my layout together. 

Besides the slightly different colour palette, the main difference between the two is that on the first page, I sponged the edges of every piece of paper.  I was trying to decide which I liked best.  I think it just depends on the mood of your photos.  For these, either works.

I hope you all have a delightful day!
