You are my Sunshine

I love, love, LOVE this face!! I can not help but feel so overwhelmingly blessed beyond measure every time I look at my children. They are both huge blessings in my life and they really are my sunshine!
This layout was inspired by a Sketch Kit Club featuring Coconut Lime Soup  by Jillibean Soup. I love all of the fun patterns in this collection, and the different sizes of the patterns. (As an example- I used the pink with butterflies on this layout, if the butterflies had been larger I may not have used them here.)

I can not tell you how many times I have seen a scrapbook page or a card and wondered why the creator had done things the way she did, and would love to know her thoughts. So... I am going to share my thought process with you today. One thing I have really been working on is creating "movement" on my pages. One way I am doing that is by placing things in triangles, it keeps your eye moving across the page. This photo gives you a better idea of what I am talking about- the small circle and heart is on the top photo, embellishment cluster on the right and then more embellishments on the lower left.
I went a little trendy by including banners on my page and then mixed in some embellishments with an old feel to them- the button with twine and the hand cut Mason jar with twine.
Another thing I have noticed is that my layouts look flat. The remedy that I used lots of layers with my embellishments. By using my stickers over my pictures that helped to connect them to my page.
Thank you for letting me share my thought process with you. And Thanks for stopping by!!
Until later~

I love that you shared that thought process with us. Very cute layout, but then how could it not be with such a cute subject?!?! TFS!
