Walking the Brooklyn Bridge

Okay, it's been way too long since I've shared something here. Life has been extremely busy. In the past two weeks, our family has taken a 5 day trip to NYC, I was a cochair of a women's night at church and our youngest daughter was baptized. Plus the kids were on fall break which means we are really off schedule. Lots of good stuff going on around here, just not much creative time or blogging.

Now that the kids are back to school and I do not have a big evert to organize, I finally has a little time to create today and decided to play along with Tessa's Color Challenge over on the Scrapbook Circle blog.

The challenge is to use this color palette as inspiration for a page:

Since the News Flash kit is filled with these colors, it was pretty fun to draw inspiration from this palette.

My page is about walking the Brooklyn Bridge while we we visiting NYC. The kids thought they might die from walking so far that day. I think we ended up walking about 12 miles that day! The bridge was about mile 8 on our walking adventures that day. The views of the city for the bridge were fantastic and we also had a nice view of the Statue of Liberty.

I figured that the walking was great since we were stopping numerous times along the way to enjoy treats and delicious food. We even had cupcakes for breakfast that day we walked the bridge. I'm planning on doing another blog post about our NYC trip and all of the great treat places we visited throughout the city, so be on the lookout for that.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the arrows on the page. I just figured out what picture sizes I wanted to use on the page and then set up the cuts so that they would point at each of the pictures. The arrows were a great way to bring in little bits of color and pattern on the page.

Hope you are looking forward to a fantastically productive week!  I am.
