Insanity runs in the family...

We inherit it from our children!
I got this quote from a dear friend of mine after thinking long and hard about what the perfect title for these pictures should be. I'm not sure where I got the sketch for this page from, but as soon as I figure that out, I'll be sure to share that info with you. The base is ballet blue, then layered with a white piece that I stamped using Fabulous Flowers. I pulled my colors from the DP used under the picture panel from a pack called Cutie Pie. I LOVE dp, and many of you don't know that I used to be DEAD SET AGAINST using DP. I am a stamper first, so making my own DP has always been the way I've gone. I have learned, though, that sometimes you have to open up your options a bit by adding elements that you wouldn't "normally" add to get the look on your page that you are going for.



These pictures were taken at Christmas this year. The kids were soooo willing to sit and make goofy faces and funny gestures as long as we were snapping shots of them. They're all such hams! I stamped out the word "insanity" using the Doodle Alphabet and then layered various punches to spell out the word on the page. I hand-wrote the rest of the title/quote. My color palette was: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Rose Red, So Saffron, Night of Navy, and Ballet Blue. I framed the top center image using So Saffron to draw attention to the goofy picture cause it's so darn cute! This page is a little busy for me, but I had to include all the pictures... it wouldn't be complete if I hadn't!
I didn't get to do any of the sketch challenges this weekend, but hopefully, I'll get to play tonight. Have a great day!

Very cool page! I think the busyness works with the mood. I need to get my scrapbook stuff out and do the last challenge, thanks for the inspiration.
Take care
