Deja "View"

Two posts in two days...look out blogging world...lol!
This layout is based on Sketchy Thursdays sketch for this week (1.6).  Both my munchkins napped at the same time today, which left me a bit of time to get this one started and finished (rare!).
I really like the look of the sketch...very pleasing to the eye, I think.  Unfortunately, I'm not as 'in love' with my final layout.  I definitely felt as though I really rushed it and I'm regretting using red as the background...it was between red and a more muted brown with dots...darn it.  Oh well, if I had all the time in the world, I'd redo it, but I don't have that luxury...lol!  I don't 'dislike' it, I just find it a bit super-hero-y...lol!  Anyway, I DO love the photos...too funny that I managed to capture them both doing the same thing at almost the same age.  Cuties.
I used American Crafts Abode (thank you scrapbooksteals.com).  I love the vibrant colours in this collection and I also love that it's not all homey and cooking patterns.  Some plain, everyday papers also, and I took advantage of them.
Okay...looking at it again...I kind of like it...lol!  I just have to learn not to rush.  My layout will still be there to work on during tomorrow's naptime!  :)
