I am sharing a page today that incorporates a bit of whimsy and some little touches that make me happy.
I used the new Best Friends collection from Webster's Pages. The colors are really cool in this collection. I went with a black and white photo that I adore...it showcases a real moment full of laughter.
I started with a Clean & Simple base...pink! I decided to pop the light color and the photo with the bright blue. I love those little kids riding on the bike so I hand cut them from the sheet of paper. I love how the balloons serve as a corner frame to the photo. The layout needed some moment so I added the little butterflies. The part of the brown transparency serves to close the top of the layout.
I liked the Laugh transparency and the Perfect Accent, but it felt plain and unbalanced. So I added the brown strip and the string, making it like garland. Little touches.
The title was triggered by the laughter in the photo and the youthful feel of the kids riding the bike. I thought of the phrase...like giddy schoolgirls.
And the story, of course! I love the process of creating...seeing a page come together. Little touches make it!
