Day 264: Bliss of the Ordinary

This is the third of the layouts for Type+Writer, and it focuses on an ordinary, but wonderful day. Just a slice of my life.

Jen Wilson Country Carnivale papers; Type + Writer papers; JS Sprague template; I love you and VT Remington fonts

I really like how we learned to use Wordle at wordle.net to make the background text art toward the bottom of the digiscrapped page. It was so much fun to put in a bunch of writing, have wordle generate the text art, adjust the colors and font, and paste it onto the layout. All you have to do, then, is adjust the blend mode. I used "screen."

Sadly, though, I look at the barbeque grill in the photo, and realize how well into fall we are now, and days of grilling outdoors will soon be over :(.

As I type this, Scott is on a plane, flying over the Pacific, from Japan to Seattle! Can't wait to see him :)

Love your lo. I would happily send you some heat so you can continue to BBQ further into the year. Glad to hear your son is on his way home!
