Loving the challenges

While blog surfing I have been trying to find more scrap challenges to participate in. I found a really cool site called color line design. I found it through Kellie Puddy's blog. I don't know how it all works specifically but I saw one of the template challenges she posted and I fell in love. She creates beautiful templates and hosts a bi-monthly template challenge. They are perfect for showcasing your photos. She even puts a perfect spot in for journaling. I was a little late in submitting this for the challenge but I had to use this template.

Park-picture

Instead of a background paper I used a photo I snapped while we were at the park. I love taking photos at the park. They always turn out so fun.

The journaling says: We discovered this beautiful park that was pretty close to home. On a day with gorgeous weather Mommy and Daddy decided to head out to play as a family. We started out the afternoon with a nice picnic lunch. Afterwards, we took a stroll around the pond. We spent some time on the playground. Even Mommy rode on the swings. We finished off the day with another stroll around the pond and a climb up this giant hill. It was so awesome and we couldn’t have asked for a better day together. There are more days like this in our very near future. 06/01/08

The papers are Summer Fun patterns from The Scrappin Cop, The chipboard is from Atomic Cupcake, the grunge border was adapted from an overlay I got from Sweetmade.net, safety pin from Angie's Asylum and brogs from Memories Made Easy.
