Although this is day 2 of the blog hop, feel free to jump back "in time" and see all the great projects from yesterday!
Here is another Summer Begins layout of my daughter playing at the park. If you saw my son's yesterday, you will notice this is a whole new theme! She is a monkey and loves to climb, so I emphasized her "monkeyness" and her bravery!
At the Park--First Dry Summer Day!
I used coordinating patterned paper with cute little monkeys (not sure of brand) with matching cardstock stickers! I matted the focal photo with a 1" mat so that it would stand out and then aligned three cardstock word stickers down the right hand side of the photo mat. The three tags below are made with the "Fastenator" that makes it's own tags. You can buy the outline (silver on mine) in any shape/color you want, then add the background paper of your choice. I did that and then added three circle stickers from the same pack. A few yellow heart brads completed the look along with a bright yellow ribbon as a border with green brad ends.
The right hand side is much simpler than the left. with a journaling block with a couple of stickers, the continuation of the yellow ribbon border and a little sticker block in the bottom corner of the vertical picture.
Here is a close up of the tags I made!
Here is the journaling block with just two little stickers added on!
