Elle’s Studio-Adventure

Hello Elle’s Studio friends!  Candace back with you today to share a fun 8.5 x 11 layout using the May kit along with papers & embellishments from the Live Laugh Love collection.

I wanted to document a recent trip my husband I took together wandering the streets of South Carolina.  I started the layout with a white 8.5 x 11 piece of white card stock.  I wanted my photo block to run along the top third of the layout.  For my block I used a 3×4 card from this month’s kit along with the acrylic “Adventure” piece and a photo from our walk.

This block served as the focal point of the spread.  Next, to add balance in both weight and color I started to add to the center of the layout pulling down towards the bottom.  To do this I simply cut up the word strips from another 3×4 card in this month’s kit and popped up the strips running down the page.

To ground the layout I added a few accent pieces of patterned paper and washi tape from the LLL collection to the top and bottom of the spread.  For my final touches I added a little black stitching, enamel dots, label stickers and an acrylic heart.

I just adore the final layout and the memories captured here.  I love that I can look back and read about these special times together.  I love that my kids can read about how much their mommy and daddy love spending time together.

Memories made & memories captured and documented….this is what we do and it is so very important!
