When I got the new Sophie kit in the mail, I couldn't hardly wait to play with it. The colors of this kit feel so fresh and fun to me!! I had big plans to make a really great layout either about the best of 2016, or my hopes for 2017. The problem I ran into was that I didn't really have the photo's I wanted to support either of those page ideas. I didn't let that stop me though, it took me all of two seconds to find another photo and story that would work perfectly with the beautiful products I had sitting on my desk.
Here is a look at my layout!
Every time I look at my little girl's school picture I get a little pain in my heart! She just looks like such a big girl and I am not ready for that to happen!
For this layout I decided to cut my back ground paper down to 6x12. This size is definitley one of my favorites to work with. It is the perfect amount of space for a photo, some words, and a few perfect embellishments.
I could have used her actual school picture, but I made a choice to go with a picture I took of them on the day that we got her photos back. I thought it went better with the story I was telling.
I used some white cardstock to mat my photo. I then picked some of my favorite patterned paper from the kit to make some messy layers that I placed behind my photo. To add even more interest, I used a super cute yellow polka dot tag that I got from the full page of cut apart embellishments.
For my title I paired the "sweet" silicone charm with some of the puffy sticker alphabets. It ended up working so well together, and I love the mixture of texture and color.
I new I wanted to bring some of the goodness that was happening at the top of the page down to the bottom. At first I just added the pink washi strip, but felt like it needed something more. The hearts are from the cut apart sheet, and I added a few puffy hearts to it to add just a little something special. I love the look of tone on tone, and this little grouping of hearts makes me smile!
I used a pen to draw some lines to journal on. I didn't bother using I ruler, I sorta like that the lines aren't perfect. After that I just had to write my words, and then I called this layout complete!
I love the way this layout turned out, and I can't wait to add it to my daughters album!
