At the time I was going through a bit of a phase where I liked to create different edges on my pages. In this instance the arrows cut off two of the corners; and, please don't laugh, but the idea of using the arrows came to me in a dream. LOL! I had absolutely no idea what I was going to do with the LO but I liked it. Some time later I came across a photo from the late 1950s of GB (just a baby) and his family on a picnic. The vintage of, and memory captured by, the photo were perfect for this LO ..
By the way, the patterned paper was a Christmas collection released by Crate Paper. Although a Crate Paper junkie of many years, I have to admit I didn't like this particular range. However I had received the papers in a DT kit so I had to do something with them! Luckily for me, the reverse of the patterned papers were more to my taste and easy to work with!!! :)
*Exceptions of course being LOs which are journaling focused.
