Splish Splash with Palm Beach!

Thanks so much for your kind words about the Webster's Pages Clean & Simple Design team! I am really excited to share one of my first projects with you today using the brand new "Palm Beach" collection (consider this a sneak peak, if you will). You can also check out my introduction over at the Webster's Pages blog if you want.

I knew that I wanted to create with photos of all of us at the aquatic center last summer. I pulled out several bright, bold colors in the collection and then paired it with a neutral kraft cardstock sprayed with a little white and turquoise mist. This two-page layout actually started out as a one-page layout (the page on the left) but when I was almost finished with it, I was still staring at all of the photos that ended up on the right page and I knew it had to be a two-page layout. To keep the layout fluid, I simply joined the two pages with a small strip of turquoise patterned paper.

Here's a closer look at page 1...

and a closer look at page 2...

And a few close-ups...I am really excited about working with Webster's trims and cameos. Yum!

And check out that little resin bird and sparkler!

Thanks for checking out my first project for Webster's Pages. I'll be sharing more from the new collections next week.

If you are a regular blog reader, you might have noticed that I gave the blog a little make-over. What do you think? Are you having any trouble reading text or seeing photos? I was really tired of having teeny tiny photos on my blog, especially for all the two-page layouts I have been creating recently. I also really like the new blog header I found at Shabby Blogs.

I have been playing a little bit of catch up around the house today and will be for the next few days. We potty-trained the girls over the weekend using a 3-day method and it WORKED! We only had one minor accident yesterday and it was late in the day and we even were out of the house for a couple hours. I'm feeling really good about how well they did but I know we'll continue to have a few issues as we go about our normal routine. We tried using a public restroom yesterday and the girls were absolutely terrified and traumatized by the automatic flushing toilet. So, I'm sure public restrooms might be a little scary for a while now. :)

Anyway, enough of the potty talk...I'm sure you wanted to hear all about it. ;)

More tomorrow! :)
