Obviously, there were WAY too few photos on the sketch for my 30 pictures. I narrowed down my favorite photos even further and fit 18 on the page. It was somewhat busy, so I removed the matte that is behind the 6x4 focal photo in the sketch. Keeping the focus on the photos, I decided to make my embellishments monochromatic. I also reduced the number of embellishments from 9 to 3.
Here's what I made:
From Flamingo Scraps: Fancy Pants patterned paper
Other: Bazzill cardstock; Scenic Route chipboard; Family Treasures flower punch; American Crafts pens
I was able to use the Fancy Pants "Beach Bum" paper (blue and striped) that I fell in love with at CHA. I love the way it looks paired with the Fancy Pants "Summer Soiree" (orange with red accents).
This was a really fun layout to make! At a glance, it reminds me of all the fun I had at CHA and the fabulous friends I made.
