Swinging Back To Reality

I finally got one layout done this week. I requested for this kit due to its awesome papers. I wanted to use them all at the same time and this was my way of getting it all out. It was a tricky one since i had to pick elements that I wanted and had to change some colors of some papers to balance it all out else the colors would really start conflicting. This layout was 3/4th done about a month ago till "the news" (see below for further details - "Short Update") came out and things got too crazy. I was having problems finding the right quote for this. I believe I was forcing it that evening. It's good to step back a bit and reflect on what I wanted to do now than be in such a state before. I can't get enough of this nephew of mine.
I'm sure that scrapping will help remember the good to great times of family. :) Gotta start cranking things out like I used to!

Thanks to all the designers that helped and emailed me during those hard times...especially when assignments were already past due. I appreciate all your love and support on this.

Kit Name: Homespun Harmony (available at Digizines Digital Den)
Kit Designer: ShabbyScrapDesigns (Deanna Patterson)
Kit Location:
Font: Footlight MT Light
Program: PS7.0
Journaling: "Never did I think that I became family entertainment." ~ Jimmy Buffet
Notes: I was inspired by the colors and the quote. My nephew is the family's first grandson by my folks so everything and anything that he does is entertainment for all members of my family. With a face like, who could resist to indulge him with whatever "colorful ways" we can think of. :)
