Grid Me - CKCB Challenge #3

Well hello there!!
Today is Challenge #3 over on the CKCB 
and it is all things grid.

Now when I was first given this challenge,
I thought, Hmmm...... what do I do with this?
You see, when I use grids it is quite by accident.
I don't sit at my desk and think, 
"I'm going to use a grid for my background today."
Nope.  I'm more of a fly by the seat of my pants
kinda gal.  If I see it and it makes me smile then
grid or not, that's my background.
I know, my system is mind boggling =)

So for this one, I pulled out some grids.
Honestly didn't even know if I had any,
but I did.
But it wasn't jumping out at me. 
So I looked over on my desk 
and to what do my wandering eyes appear?
Maggie Holmes of course.
Just sayin'


This lovely was staring at me.

So I set about using it as inspiration.
So mine certainly isn't of the perfection kind,
but it is of the mine kind,
and I love it!

I drew my grid using a ruler, 
but as you can see, not exact.
A little haphazardly.

This is a picture from our vacation last year.
It is a dark picture of me holding up our supper
we'd just caught.  
I need to go back in and edit some of these shots
to lighten them up a bit, but I just LOVE this shot.
dark and all.
I remember how I felt holding this up.

I decided tto go with a very simple color combo:
Black, White & Yellow
Love it.
This little beaut was in my Maggie Holmes (BFF)
chipboard stickers.  LOVE IT!

Who Knew?  I liked to fish?!!

And I also REALLY liked the whole thing vintaged out
like only Rhonna's app can do.
Love it!

Well thank y'all for stopping by and I hope you will do something
with your own grid design, and when you do, please link up.  
We'd LOVE to see it!!

Have a Blessed and Beautiful,
Krafty Kind of Day ~~
