Cousins in Autumn

I've had several comments in the last while from people who like my clean and simple style.

Thank you so much for your kind words; I sometimes look at my pages and think they must look incredibly plain next to some of the other layouts out there, but they are exactly as I like them (isn't that what matters?) and it is nice to know that others love them as well. Artists always need a little encouragement (or is that just me?), and I love blogs for that: as great places to celebrate creativity of all kinds.

(Confession: These wonderfully kind people have often used the acronym CAS in their comments and the first time I saw this, I had no idea what it meant. Thank goodness for Google. And if you are equally baffled, CAS stands for clean and simple.)

Today’s layout is very CAS. I honestly do not think it could get more clean and simple than this.
I chose a neutral base for my page.
Embellishments were kept to a minimum.
And the pictures of my girls and their cousins spending some time together outside on a beautiful autumn weekend take center stage – which is what I strive for on every layout.

I love clean and simple. It just looks right to me. Thanks for loving it as much as I do.
