Close To My Heart Autumn Album Retreat -- Hello World Layout

I had a lot of fun with this layout as we got to fill the spray pen with water and re-inker and spritz for a fun look.

The funniest thing about this layout is that BOTH my mom and my sister asked me who's baby Nathan was holding.


I thought it was weird when my mom asked, but then my sister also asked me on a separate day.


It's your grand-daughter and niece...remember Nathan's sister...Morgan?!?!

We all had big, huge belly laughs at that one.

We are HUGE Badger Fans here in Madison, Wisconsin.

Our kids have been to UW Football games, UW Volleyball games, UW Basketball games and UW Hockey Games!

We live and breathe Red and White!


Tips & Techniques for This Layout:
* Create entire layout from two themed keys
* Look at themes in new ways; notice how this layout uses colors not typically associated with Badgers (red & white)
* Shrink overlay to use as an accent on a page
* Duplicate cuts in different colors to tie layout together
* Use open space within a photo mat to highlight journaling
* Stamp tone on tone titling popped up with 3-D foam tape
* Scallop Shimmer trim with scallop punch
* Create dovetailed tags with washi tape
* Stamp on cork pieces to add variety
* Leave white space for a cute and trendy look -- less is more
