Samantha here, and today I have another fun layout to share! :) woo-hoo! It's ok, you can calm down, we're not even at the FUN part yet! Ha!
First, a little behind the layout story:
My biggest little Mann just finished 1st grade!! It's crazy - I can hardly believe it happened! Anyway, every morning, we would load in the car and sit in the drop off line, eat our breakfast, sing along with songs and go over spelling words!
And the best part - we watched the sunrise almost every morning together! I just had to document this special thing, that we did everyday!
Ok, so I used a thin layer of gesso on the base of my layout. Then I added the photo and all of that lovely layering behind it! I used various papers from lots of 6x6 paper pads...of which, I have just a few (*whistle*).
I used the awesome tiny phrases from the Rise and Shine Amy Tangerine collection in grey to support the story. And that cute little grey and wooden heart is from the My Minds Eye Necessities collection. I also added some texture with embossing paste and a stencil in white! I LOOOOOVE the white on white thing it has going on! :)
Oh, and those cute little cars from the Lawn Fawn Happy Trails stamp set really are my favorite part of this layout! I stamped and colored them in with copics and then placed them over that awesome road washi! Hello perfection! :)
I finished off the layout with some stitching over the Thickers and Heidi Swapp stickers! LOOOOOVE those stickers, I think I've used them on about a dozen different layouts! They add the perfect amount of POP! :)
So that's it!
We now return you to your regularly scheduled Sunday!
