You Are Awesome

Hi all!!! Happy Monday!! It's the start of a busy week here, we have VBS this week, so will be running like crazy! Really this starts a whole crazy month of activities with camps and family visits. guess the lazy summer was nice while it lasted! lol.

I have a fun layout to share with you today. Not my normal style, but I had this picture in my head and really wanted to give it a try.

Very simple, as far as embellishing goes, and I still feel like it need more by the photo. Everything I tried around it distracted from it though. I love how there is all the bright and busy triangles on one side, but the photo still takes center stage. And how perfect was this Pebbles collection with that photo? Love it!
Hope you all have a fabulous day, and take time to create something you love!

Project 12: May

Hi all!! Happy Wednesday! :) I have my May Project 12 spread to share with you today. Still loving this process, and so glad I started in January!

Here's the full spread:

Left side:
Right side:

Pretty simple this month, I had some photo issues. I ordered a set of prints from Origrami to use for this spread, and while I loved the quality, they were a little bigger than I expected. So even after cropping/trimming them down, they took up the majority of the pocket space. Will definitely have to remember that for next time!
Hope you all have a fabulous day,  and take time to create something you love! :)

Underwater Beauty

Hi all!! Happy Wednesday! Hope summer is treating you well :) Ours has been pretty fabulous so far!

I have a layout to share with you today using the May Gossamer Blue kit. I really loved all the fun, bright colors in this kit. The only paper I wasn't too sure of was an anchor print by Fancy Pants. I'm just not sold on the anchor trend! I was, however, determined to use this paper! Going through photos, I found this old one of Miss K, the photo in itself is nothing special, but I clearly remember how excited she was this day, showing us all how she could " go under" all by herself. I thought it would be perfect for the paper!

Now, I really struggled with this layout....still not really in love with it. I'm not sure if it was that paper, using a 4x6 photo (which I NEVER do) or what, but it was a very slow process.

Still not sure, just feels like something is missing. I'm calling it down though....I'm determined to stop stressing so much about layouts being perfect, and just enjoy and have fun! That's what it's supposed to be, right? :)
Hope you all have a great day, and take time to create something you love! :)
