Just Swingin' Layout

In my page Just Swingin' I set out to create the perfect scene for this sweet little photo of my youngest son swinging at the playground. I started with a sketch from Simple Scrapper's Premium Collection which inspired the lovely pieced foundation for my page made up of several of my favorite prints from the Field Notes Collection.

From there I decided to add these cute little doilies that I had leftover from a recent shower to the bottom half of my page. I secured them with a strip of Green Washi Tape that also acted as a fun border and then popped the the center doily out--thinking this would be the perfect spot for my photo. To get the perfect size and shape photo to fit inside my doily I used Photoshop to crop my photo into a 2.5" circle.

Then I fanned out a few ephemera cards from the Field Notes Tear Apart Sheet and tucked them behind my photo and topped everything off with a few pops of dimension by using Foam Squares to add the butterflies (cut from a sheet of patterned paper from the Field Notes Collection) and word banner to the page.
