Perfect Day by SUE CREASE

Perfect Day by SUE CREASE

Today I'm sharing another layout for The Mad Scrapper Blog and this time it is of my sister and her hubby on a recent visit to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in Rome. On this particular day they visited the Trevi Fountain and were able to get this lovely photo of themselves.
As it was such a sunny day I knew exactly which paper collection I would choose, yes Happy Days by Cocoa Vanilla. There is a full list at the bottom.
I started by taking a white Bazzill card and adding a blue/sea looking paper at the halfway point. I took the rays stencil and inked through to the left of the centre line, then I made up my mats to go under the photo from pieces of the collection.
Then I added the heart strip across the join and added the photo to its spot. I added some funky foam under to allow me some clearance for tucking things underneath. I had sat and fussy cut a sheet of the flowers out as well as the fruit when I first received the collection so I had those ready to go. Some I added a piece of card behind for dimensions. I put the flowers down then added the little sentiment strip from one of the cut apart sheets. At this point I decided to trim the page down and add a nice bright border to make it pop.
The right side I added a couple of lemons (well I thought I would!) along with some ephemera from 49 and Market. The top right flag banner was added because I felt that corner needed a little something and I topped it with the phrase.
This next photo shares a closer look at the bottom right little cluster I made up with more flowers from the kit as well as more 49 ephemera. I did a little bit of journaling but made it read like Jayne had written it.
This last photo shows the couple of banners added along with the Paradise sentiment. I found a little camera to add to the page which I added after I had splatted some distress ink around the page. To finish off I added some of the last few puffy stickers I have left.
Thanks for stopping by again today. Hopefully I have inspired you to use a holiday snap you have somewhere on your phone or in the draw.
