Here is her sketch that we went by:
And here is my take on it:
I stuck pretty close to the original sketch, using only one landscape photo and a larger journal area, and also moved the title down slightly. I changed it to my 8.5x11, and a rare one-page layout (since this will be the first page in a new album). I also moved the embellishments a little bit, drawing your eye down the page.
Besides the sketch, this layout was completely inspired by the American Crafts Mayberry paper. I just LOVED the pink and yellow hexagons, it really caught my eye as I walked past it at Basket Market one day. In deciding what embellishments to use, I thought of butterflies. To me, they represent a renewal, shedding of the old, free to fly ... so I pulled out my Stampin' UP! punches and layered them with some cute bling. I cut my title with my Silhouette Cameo, and once I was done, decided it needed a little bit of sparkle. I went over the pink cardstock with my pink Wink of Stella glitter pen, and it was exactly the look I was wanted! :)
