11 - Top of the World

A fun random childhood memory. My hidden journaling (on the 7 Gypsies tag tucked behind the photos) tells about how when I was a kid, we'd go to the school playground after hours and I'd sit on the top of those monkey bars singing the old Carpenters song, "I'm on the top of the world looking down on creation..." at the top of my lungs.

I used a Page Maps sketch as inspiration for my page:

Here are some closeups. I've got details about the page and materials I used (and a video of the Carpenter's song for you young'ns who don't know what it is) on my blog, if you're interested in reading about that: http://debbitscraps.blogspot.com/2012/03/top-of-world-csi-case-file-no-11.html

Thank you so much for looking at my page!

This page is stunning! All the details are impressive, the colors, the pictures, the layering,  but above what amazes me the most is your journaling. Thanks for teaching me so much with every layout of yours. I want to be like you, :)

Oh look at little you! so cute! You have such a great graphic style Debbi, you pages really appeal to my graphic artist side. All of your elements tie the story and theme together so well. I love the random memory concept.  Fantastic page, stunning!
