Old Mill Park

The April design team challenge was to take some early morning photos. My challenge was to find a free early morning to get out of the house for a photo op! I had decided where I wanted to go for my picture taking and I was waiting for the right morning to arrive. Finally, my kids and my husband headed out the door around the same time on a Monday morn at 6:45, I quickly dressed and drove to the park. Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperating with my plans. Sunrise was at 6:50 that morning but the sun was hidden behind menacing gray clouds. The wind was blowing and it was cold!!! But I mustered on my mission. I was hoping to get more lights and shadows in my photos but the morning light was really flat. I did have a brisk stroll around the park and I was happy to finally get to my inviting seat heaters in my car!

I based my page design off of Mosaic Moments page pattern #31. The page patterns are wonderful guides for helping with design ideas. I was stumped about how I wanted to best use my photos for this page and glancing through the page patterns was really helpful.

I like the clouds at the top and the earth at the bottom. I also second the comment that the colors work very nicely together.

Loved the placement of the photos and the sky across the top!

The whole effect is just beautiful. The colors of your photos blend together so well--sometimes shades of blues don't look good together. The page pattern you used was perfect for the pics. I second Andrea's comment about the top photo going completely across the top. The time tag is a great embellishment. Have you decided to go for a brisk walk every morning--ha!

I think you must have chosen the perfect pattern for your photos - it looks so good! and I too love the title tag - and that you included the time!

Love your little date tag, so subtle! Like that you told us which MM pattern you used, too. Aren't the simple shapes like the "wheel" so great for giving light and dark contrasts? Like that you used your cloudy sky photo across the whole top. Summer may have brought warmer temps to deal with, but it would have been an earlier sunrise too!
