I love the exclusive papers in this month's kit, and I loved how the shape of the dome on the paper echoed the shape of the playground in my photo. Subtle nuances like this can really bring your layout together into a cohesive, thoughtful design.
One thing I'm really loving about the 8-1/2" x 11" size layout is that I can easily type and print my journaling on the background paper. I created a nice column with journaling, my title and my photo, to stand up to the weight of my patterned paper column on the right. The "adventure" circle was added with the August 2015 This Life Noted stamp set, and I placed a chipboard heart from the Simple Stories So Fancy chipboard in the add-on kit.
I wanted a tall, strong sans-serif font for the word "mighty" in my title, so I cut the word, using Bebas Neue, on my Silhouette Cameo. Above that, I added the "love this girl" banner from the Wednesday Night digital files and the chipboard ampersand, again from the Simples Stories chipboard in the add-on. To finish off the page, I added a cardstock border at the top left corner, a metal brad and a few enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!
