Favorite - Pretty Little Studio

Hey crafty friends!

I am happy to be here with you today, on the Pretty Little Studio Blog, for the fact that this gorgeous Grateful Heart collection has so much purple in it that I can document all my favorite photos of my boy with the perfect color.  Who says this fall line can't be used for things that aren't even fall?

I started with a big rectangle large enough to sew around the edges and still fit my envelope filled with ephemera from the National Honor Society event.  It is kinda hidden until you see I opened the flap of the envelope in a later photo.  

I covered the front of the paper with photos and a 3x4 block, keeping things clumped in the center of my page.  I was sure to not add adhesive behind where the flap of my envelope would tuck under when closed.  We received an invitation to the event, a certificate for the program and a letter from his Kindergarten teacher that was even read out loud that night.  Some pretty spectacular things to save.  

You can see at the end of my layout, I added Nuvo Drops in the center of my flowers for dimension and scattered around to tie all the colors together.  

Cascading flowers around the center clump filled some of the white space and gave your eyes a place to wander around.  I really enjoy creating pockets and hidden journalling on my pages.  

Hope you will give it a try.
