I finally got a chance to dig into my June Swag Bag from Paper Issues. At first I thought I might use all of the awesome cards for Project Life. But, as I laid out the cards to see what was included in the kit, this layout was born.
The colors in this kit are awesome! I used some Crate Paper vellum (backed with white card stock) for my base. I've been hoarding the vellum for a long time, and I hated to cover it up, but it was perfect for this LO. The circle die cut behind the main photo also came in a Swag Bag; I altered it by misting with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine.
To be honest, when I saw the "this is the sweet life", I knew I needed to turn this into a layout with B's first ice cream man experience!
For the hidden journal spot, I used some textured white card stock (came in the Swag Bag). I painted it with gelatos and a water brush for an ombre effect. Then I printed my journaling on card stock, cut it out and added it. I forgot a few words, so I added them in pen. Done!
I'm linking this LO up with Paper Issues current issue. It's a link-y party! Join in the fun!
