Outside of my box; well at least trying!

I joke often with one of my scrappy friends that everything I do seems to make the shape of a square or rectangle! So, today I tried to step out of my style and have a little fun.

I'm wondering, do you find yourself creating the same pages over & over again? Is this comforting or do you challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone?

Journaling: Little man you are a nut who brings so much joy into my world. One of your favorite things at the zoo is the photo booth. You are always ready to make your silly faces. That is until I completely confuse you & try to make a silly face myself. Oh well, I guess silly is your things & my job is just to smile in the background. I can certainly handle that because I know

For this layout I was absolutely inspired by the playful layouts I've seen in the Studio Calico Gallery. I decided to go through my scraps to help with the random look of the layout. I would love to see what you can do with your scraps. Anyone want to step outside of their comfort zone with me?

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this layout! Totally cute!

Okay . . . I'll take you up on that challenge. You may have to wait until May's L.O.A.D. challenge starts, though.

I thought I'd be a little more organized before LOAD, but it looks like I'll be flying by the seat of my pants, yet again. *sigh* Will I EVER get it together?! lol
