Big Comfy Chair

We had a delightful time at the Speed Scrap a few days ago. Mel did it in the chat room as well, so it was nice to have a little company (and gardening advice) while I worked.

I love Speed Scraps because you actually get a layout done. Sometimes life gets in the way and you can't make it at the right time, or you just plain forget! But ... I'm so happy I was able to do this one!

Because it was a one photo layout, I chose this one of my kids the day we got our new leather recliner. It was a one-photo sort of story :) They love this chair. My husband and I love it, too, but the kids want to rock and jump and lean back ... they're kids!

I used A+Designs kit, Sweet American Pie, which will be released August 13th ... jumped the gun :) and an alpha from Katherine Aagard (who I believe is retired).

I liked the layout alright and then the final step came - put on a title using an alpha - well, I got all the letters in there and was planning to do something smaller with journaling surrounding it to fill in the big space at the top ... and then just liked the way it looked all HUGE like this. It kind of adds to the idea of Big and Comfy :)

I hope you like it!!!
