What I like most about this layout are the little details. With twelve pictures and bright lime/orange papers all demanding the viewers' attention, I needed to keep the embellishments simple, but not so plain they'd be lost. I started with the grungeboard 5. I painted it orange, rubbed it with orange Stickles, and then tied on the ribbon. I used the same Stickles to cover the brad and to fill in the center of the star-shaped button. I edged the vellum circles in Stickles.
I love the way the dotted vellum sets off the 5 and the date. I'd originally used the same dotted vellum for the journaling, but it was hard to read. I switched to a plain vellum and it looks much better.
Such a fun layout and such great memories from a fantastic day!
