These photos of my daughter were taken before we had a digital camera. I had lots of cute shots, but none were able to be enlarged without sacrificing clarity. So I chose to use them all! Since the focus of the layout is my baby discovering and enjoying the beach, I had no problem at all cropping out the scenery from the photos (if you've ever been to the Oregon coast, you know how beautiful it is). Besides, I have plenty of other photos featuring the landscape. This grid design made it very easy to use multiple photos. Did you notice the little blue flowers? Those were cut from one of the Lily Bee papers (shown in the upper-right block in the grid) and as you can see, were initially white. I used Nautical Blue Smooch Ink to color them, and really love the effect. This ink gave them a pearly finish and up close almost look like fabric! Then, for the centers, I cut three little ball-links from the metal chain included in the kit and adhered them with half of a mini glue-dot. This took a little patience, but the results were worth it. I think the little details are so important.
I made a card with some of the scraps I was left with after three layouts. The flower "stems" are what was left of the Prima flourish after I had cut it all to pieces (for multiple accents on my double layout in my first reveal). When I realized that I had basically straight pieces left, this seemed like a good way to use them!Thanks for having a look. I have really enjoyed working with this kit!
