This was my absolute favorite layout that I created with this kit. First of all I was able to get ahold of the ephemera package (thank you Cassie at Paper Issues!) which was the perfect touch to create this, all those lovely bits and pieces! I love this picture I took of the kids Christmas morning before opening the presents; I could have asked for anything at this point as they wanted to get started, lol! I really wanted to keep this paper intact, but I was finding it hard to ground my picture and also embrace the floating stars. By placing my photos in the stars (it really worked better with only 4 pics, but hey we had 5 kids then) and using a bold title I was able to create a flow through the whole page that was pleasing. I made sure to use a few pops of black to make visual triangles.
Here is the sketch I created from my layout,
Thanks for stopping by, I'd love to see if you used any of my sketches just leave a comment and I will stop by!
