Being Together


This page is for a challenge at Paper Popsicles. First off, we needed to post a summer photo. I posted this family photo. Once everyone had their photos posted, we got the layout challenge instructions, which were to include the following on our layout of the photo that we posted:
  • yellow, blue and brown cardstock
  • 3 buttons
  • 4 different patterned papers
  • journaling
  • the word "blast" in the title
  • 3 stickers

I struggled the most with using the word "blast"! However, I made it work, and I love the result! This page is made with an August kit from the Paper Popsicles store. I love the Breaking Free My Mind's Eye papers! I cut the title and subtitle on my Cricut Expression. My journaling block was created with Autumn Leaves acrylic stamps. I added silk Primas, buttons, a Tim Holtz ticket, and 7 gypsies stickers. I also did a lot of distressing and used two border punches! This was a fun page to create, and I love it! You can click on it to see it larger!

I hope you're having a GREAT day! As always, thanks for stopping by!
