I may have squeeled a bit when I saw this month's Pinspire Me board. I loved all the stars and the summery vibe. I knew I would make a layout about taking andy to the drive in last summer and how it didn't go exaxtly as planned, but is a memory we treasure anyway.
I actually had this layout almost completely done, but wasn't happy with it at all. I then had the idea to layer dictionary pages over my cardstock and painting some gesso over it. I am much happier with how it turned out.
I punched out a bunch of stars from white card stock and scattered them over the page. I finally used those blue doily die cuts from Crate Paper's The Pier line. I loved them, but could never find the right thing for them. I love how they look at the top of the page.
The title is from We R Memory Keepers Love Notes line and was perfect for this memory.
I layered some papers from Love Notes under my photo and added a few embellishments from My Mind's Eye and Evalicious.
I kept feeling like my page wasn't finished. I added a few large banner type pieces under the tag the photo was mountrd on and it finally felt finished.
