This layout I am sharing today took me a week to finish! I would devote a couple of minutes to it whenever I had free time, then put it aside when I was busy. I am the kind of person who hates to have an unfinished project laying around, though, so I'm glad I finally got it done before my weekend away!
The colors were inspired by the bear and the chair ;) Some of the patterned paper was some older stuff I had but the background paper and the plaid brown are both from the American Crafts Amy Tangerine line. I cut the coordinating strips of paper in various widths from 1/4 inch to 1 inch. Then I cut them to different lengths as well. I inked them all with brown to help them stand out.
The photos are matted on brown card stock and I placed a large brad that reads "I Love You" in the corner. This brad is one of three embellishments I used to create a visual triangle on my layout.
For the title I used my Sizzix to cut out the words in Playground font. All letters are lowercase except for the A to give a childlike look. I adhered them with a glue pen to a banner shape I hand cut. Then I adhered the banner with pop dots to give it dimension. I attached a tag that reads Moments with a tiny pink brad.
The buttons are the third of three embellishments and the colors are a perfect match!
Thanks for stopping by! I will be back Monday (I hope!) with the first of many layouts that I plan on completing on my mini-vacation! Have a great weekend all!
