Decompress -- A Layout and a Necessity

I had a tough day a few weeks ago and I really needed to get out and decompress.  I was starting to get quite spun up and I just needed a bit of release.  At the time, we had the company of our dear friends from Mexico, which include my very dear sister in Christ (and certainly in spirit) Rebecca.  She saw my need and suggested we take the car and just go.....somewhere......anywhere.

So we did, and this layout was born as a result of that little decompression event.  I used the kits from the Scrapbook Circle March kits, Charmed Life and Lucky Girl to pull it together.

Have a look!

I like the way there is a lot of space in the middle. Space in the middle was something I needed that day.

I included a bit of the Tim Holtz distress stain in those fun drop splotches.

The title was cut using my Silhouette SD and the Simple Type Condensed font.

Thanks for stopping by!
