Hi everyone!

Mandy here with you today for this week’s Throwback Thursday project. I decided to pull out the gorgeous Unforgettable collection to use for the layout that I’m sharing today. This is still one of my favourite CVS collections! I love the combination of the pink, aqua and woodgrain, with touches of peach and purple mixed in as well! The pretty florals and the scripty fonts just top it off beautifully. It was the perfect collection to document a couple of recent photos of a day we spent exploring a local national park. My youngest daughter brought along one of her soft toys (as she usually does), and while we there my son built a little tee pee house for her toy. I thought this was such a sweet thing to do, and I wanted to scrapbook these photos to record the memory.

To start this layout off, I cut some of the papers from the 6×8 inch Paper Stack into 2 inch squares and then adhered them around the outside edge of a sheet of cardstock to create a patchwork style border. Next I trimmed a sheet of white cardstock down to 9 inches square and matted it on the reverse side of the Lacewing patterned paper before adhering it to the centre of the layout. I also added some machine stitching around the edge of the white cardstock to add some extra texture and detail to the page.

I matted one of my photos with the pink side of the Unscripted patterned paper and the other with the beautiful Natural Beauty woodgrain paper. I adhered the photos roughly in the middle of the layout with them slightly overlapping and angled. I used craft foam to adhere the photo on the left to give it some nice shadow and dimension. I also added a couple of stickers from the Accessory Sticker sheet on the bottom right hand corner of that photo.

I created two floral clusters on the layout, one to the bottom left of the photos and the other to the top right. I used a combination of florals that were fussy cut from the Glorious patterned paper, along with a couple of leaf sprigs and feathers from the Die Cut Ephemera pack.

For my title I used the ‘Living the Dream’ die cut from Ephemera pack and I added this above the photo on the right. You’ll notice that I’ve created a diagonal flow to the layout with the viewer’s eye being drawn from the large floral cluster in the bottom left, up through the photos to the title and smaller floral cluster in the top right.

I adhered my typed journaling strips below the photos, and to finish the layout off I added some of the cute open hearts from the Clear Sticker pack around the floral clusters and title.

Thanks so much for joining me here on the blog today! I hope that you found some inspiration from my layout.
