Just Chillin' Layout

My hubby took our boys and the neighbor girl up the mountain to go sledding, and of course, daddy took a ton of pictures, so I have a bunch of snow photos to scrap, something that doesn't happen often for this Southern California native!
This intro page was inspired by two challenges; first, the Stuck!? Sketches April 1st sketch.
I actually stuck pretty close to the sketch for a change, maybe because I was subliminally inspired by the "stuck" part of Stuck!? Sketches. Next, I was inspired by Child's Play "Simon" challenge.
The colors of my layout are pretty funky for snow pictures, but I noticed that different elements in the photos (a jacket and the sleds) are the same color as the Simon game, so I tried to incorporate those colors into the layout. The hardest was the green, but I managed to add some green spiral clips to pick up the color. Thanks for the inspiration, Stuck!? Sketches and Child's Play!
