Pearl – Layout 8

Some days I have to pinch myself. Why, you ask? Well, because of days like today when I realize how lucky I am to have a job scapbooking. Especially when I get to play with such stunning products, like today’s steal, The October Afternoon—Woodland Park collection. The rich colors and exquisite prints are a strong foundation for an amazing creation. I think it would be really, really hard to make anything less than perfect with this collection.

When I posted this Instagram photo to Facebook last week, a friend said it would be perfect for a Mid Week Mojo!  Little did she know how perfectly it would work with the Woodland Park Collection. My heart positively swoons over this collection as it is equally as perfect for boys and girls. I’m just afraid that my layout today doesn’t do it true justice!

As always, the October Afternoon collections are filled with amazing embellishments and papers. I knew I had to use the chevron paper as chevrons are kinda my obsession. I layered my photo on several sheets of paper, and then just kept adding. Whether that is a good or bad is yet to be determined, but how can you resist piling it on when everything is so divine?

The chipboard embellies and buttons always add a nice touch to a project as well.

I used the cardstock letter stickers for the title. I love how easily they move around for the indecisive soul that can’t quite determine where to put a title. (Yeah, that would be me.) I must admit that I’m not super fond of mixing wild prints for a title so for the letter “Y” I simply added some mist to it to give it a more solid color.

So there you have it! Like I said, I’m not sure if I did this collection justice or not. I do know I’ll be adding this collection to my stash in a heartbeat! It’s AMAZING.

Speaking of amazing, this is the layout by last week’s random winner, Marisa Torp!
