World upside down

First time I've sat down to scrap in ages. These photos have been waiting for weeks now to put down on paper. After starting gymnastics up again Trey and Gabi flip all over the house after class. After watching them do this for weeks on end, fighting over who's turn it was to go first next time, I had the kids take turns flipping around for me for a photo session. I like to scrap those random moments that show their typical life moments. Man, they flipped over time after time for me to get good photos of them smiling. I used TAC's Sands of time paper pack, and the solid blue is from DCWV. Sands of time is one of my favorites. (Little tidbit, I was published in the Fall 2007/2008 TAC catty with this paper line, and give thanks stamp set.) I find it ideal to use when I'm scrapping a page with both kids. It has blues and greens, and pinks in the designs. I like my pages to be matchy-matchy with clothes. Sometimes it's hard with a boy and a girl to have that work together unless I plan ahead with photo sessions. However for this, I didn't think ahead by planning out the clothes, but I think they both look wonderful with the paper. I used two punches from SU, the photo corner punch-big fav of mine and the scallop punch. My friend Kim from Sunshine days sent me some brads, which worked perfectly with the page. The other embellishments are from TAC. Than to top off my page, I used my scrapbooking program and created the title. I wanted it to reflect the theme of being upside down, so I put flipped over upside down.

The layout was based on a layout in Jeanette Lynton's book "Cherish". That book is one my favorite scrapping supplies! Just makes creating nice layouts so easy! She's got another one out, and I'm dying to get my hands on it!
