Clumsy Layout

As promised, here is the other layout I did for my book review for Craft Critique. This was for Challenge #38 - Play favorites or explore unique qualities.

If you happened to read the article, then you know the story and background behind this layout. I have two younger sisters, and although we are totally opposite in almost every way, we are all pretty clumsy!

I decided to use this challenge to document this trait and to finally scrapbook a picture I took 4 years ago!

The journaling reads:

Three sisters. Totally opposites. Except for one thing. We are totally clumsy, thanks to our darling, but accident prone Mom. Walking around the Oregon Coast we should have known someone was bound to get hurt. Little did we know it would be all three of us, and within minutes of each other. Shae fell and bruised her leg. I slipped and cut my toe. Laci tripped and got a scratch and a bruise. Poor Dad just shook his head and chuckled...

For the layout, I used some EcoGreen Crafts paint to add a distressed look to the background. The tags and papers are all from the My Minds Eye Breaking Free collection, and sanded some black Thickers for another distressed look.

I also used this cool transparency in the collection to go over my photo.

I love how this came out, and I am still having tons of fun using these challenges in my pages. I have a few ideas lined up and things jotted down, so now I just need the time to do them! ;)

Haha, what a funny layout =)
The red background with paint strokes looks so "bloody" =))) I hope everything turned out to be fine back then? =)
And what do numbers 7 and 6 mean?

This takes me back a few years. My poor girls! If only, if only.... you had inherited anything except my clumsiness. That was such a fun day. I was going to ask the same thing about the 7-6. It wasn't the date, so what is it?

I love your tag with the little shades, and I am envious of your handwriting style on your journaling!

7-6 was the date Mom! ;) July 2006

I was out of 0's in that Thickers set so just left them out. I put the full date "July 06" on the little ticket tab.
