Kids say the silliest things! And so often I laugh and go on, only to forget these silly conversations. This time, I got it recorded and when I was reminded of it later, I knew I had to create a page about…the pizza man!
- Design Inspiration: This layout was a very literal scraplift of one I saw over at American Crafts. I loved the design of the repeating hearts down the side of the photo/journaling block. I was in the mood for a quick page and this one totally fit the bill!
- Color Inspiration: Pizza! I used crust, sauce and cheese to inspire my color choices. When you are scrapping about pizza, you just gotta go with pizza colors! 🙂
This layout started with the story, so that’s where I’ll start too. A little background…I use a service called ohlife.com to document things about my day to day life. Each night ohlife sends me an email that asks how my day was. I hit reply and type a little bit about what went on. Then that email is stored on a password protected site. The fun part is that each night when I get the email it reminds me of things I wrote in the past. One day my youngest and I had this funny conversation and I decided to document it that night in my ohlife email. I sent off the email and promptly forgot the story. Fast forward a few months and my ohlife email came through and at the bottom it reminded me of this story. I was suddenly inspired to scrap this story. Love that!
Since I started with the story I had to go searching for a photo. Luckily I upload and tag my photos fairly regularly so it was pretty easy to find a pic. I went to my folder with photos of food and quickly found a pic of my boy eating pizza. I did reduce the color saturation a bit so the photo would match a bit better.
It seemed like triangle pizza shapes would work really well instead of the hearts in the inspiration layout. I cut these triangles with my Cricut using the Sure Cuts A Lot software. Simple and super cute!
To finish it off I added this little embellishment cluster, because this story totally makes me laugh! Love having this simple fun story documented!
