Project 365 - 52 layouts

I found two awesome items for these layouts......first off is the new kit by Anita Stergiou called Brand New Day, it has some awesome flair in it that speaks of "days" which is so perfect for this project!!! I love the colors and different textures of elements in this kit, shiny finishes, feathers, sparklers, very unique buttons, cute birdies, awesome I say! And second I picked up some templates from Suzy Q Scraps - capture life collection which is perfect for these layouts with 7 pics!!
So this is week 7:

This is the preview for Anita's kit Brand New Day

And the templates by Suzy Q Scraps:

One of my Favorite Pics of all time

I was super lucky with this shot! There is, or was, a tree in our park that due to the wind grew pretty much sideways, it was a full grown tree and no more than 5-6 feet off the ground but almost totally horizontal, anyway it was a tree that you could just walk along for a long ways, my grandkids loved it. One of the days we were at the park I caught this shot:

I love that they are walking up the tree trunk in order of age, they are basically a year apart, look just like stair steps! You are probably wondering why is she posting this......I wanna win a spot in Jessica Spragues new Class - Photo Editing: Good-to-Great Workflow! Wish me luck!!!
