Hi friends! Mandy here with you today to share a layout that I created using the beautiful Caroline kit!

Smile Layout by Mandy Melville | @FelicityJane

This kit was perfect for documenting this gorgeous photo of my eldest daughter! I often find selfies like this one that she's taken on my phone, and I love it! All the more photos for me to scrap!

I started my page off by matting my white cardstock background on the aqua & white pinstripe patterned paper. I then cut a large triangle out of the coral sketchy dot paper and adhered it to the bottom left hand corner of the page. I added a smaller triangle of the same paper in the top right hand corner. This gives the page a diagonal flow, drawing the viewer's eye back down to the photo rather than wandering off the page.

Under the left hand side of the photo, I tucked one of the pretty die cut tags, as well as a flower that I fussy cut from the large floral patterned paper. I completed the cluster with a flair button, and one of the cute hearts from the packet of silicone charms.

The die cut word 'smile' was the perfect title for this layout! I added some foam tape underneath it to give it some extra dimension, and I love how this looks! You can also see here that I tucked another fussy cut flower underneath the right hand side of the photo.

On the top right hand corner of the photo I added one of the little banners from the die cut pack, as well as a second banner that I made out of one of the strips on the sticker sheet. I finished them off with a gorgeous white leatherette bow from the kit. How sweet are these bows?!!

I knew that I had to include Caroline on my layout because something about her reminds me of my daughter! I think it's her sprinkling of freckles and her gorgeous long hair. Also her pose makes me think that she's sweet, but also a little bit sassy, just like my gorgeous girl! I'm so glad that I found a spot for her on this page!

Up in the top right hand corner of the layout I created a little cluster that includes a die cut label as well as one of the cute phrases from the silicone charms pack, and a little fussy cut flower.

To finish the layout off I added a couple more of the silicone hearts and a little bit of stamping using one of the stamps from the kit. Lastly I added my journaling and the date.

Thank you so much for joining me on the blog today! I'll be back next week to share another project using the lovely Caroline kit!
