Viewing my world

from a different angle.  The latest challenge is up at AAM and our challenge to you is to do a layout centered around your world... but from a different angle.  For some ideas and inspiration, check out the blog.  Here is my layout:



{Story}
This was a tough challenge for me!  Rani, one of the DT members, came up with this one.  For some reason I knew she would choose a deep one.. and that's exactly why I'm so happy to have her on the team!  When I first began thinking of this challenge I thought of all the ways it could go.  I could have had someone else tell me about me or what they think of me.  I could have gone quite literal and taken a photo of some familiar scenery from the floor or maybe towering up above on a stool.  But I decided to go with a different approach.  Baby feet.  Yep.  They are cute.  No scars yet from running barefoot on pavement.... no signs of age... they are fresh and adorable and who doesn't like to give a sweet little baby foot a smooch??  The word 'innocent' immediately popped into my head.  Baby feet are innocent.  They haven't explored the world like a grown up foot has.  And in some ways, I am jealous of those baby feet.  No worries, no cares in the world other then knowing that people love smooching your feet and cuddling you. 

{Materials}
Cardstock - Die Cuts with a View
Paper - Pink Paislee
Flowers - Prima Marketing
Chipboard flower - Cosmo Cricket
Ticket embellie - My Minds Eye
Journal tag - Creative Cafe

Hope you decide to come take the challenge at AAM.  It's a tough one but well worth it!  And there's a great prize for April participants to boot. :)
