Close To My Heart Autumn Album Retreat -- On This Day Layout

This layout is one of my favorites for a few reasons:

1 - It has my favorite color combo -- Pear & Lagoon.

2 - We used the Hexagon Irresistibles which is my favorite shape.

3 - We used my favorite tool -- the Spray Pen with Re-Inker.

3 - It has my favorite Badger Fans -- Nathan & Morgan.

My husband took Nathan and Morgan and their good friend Griffin to the Badger Women's Volleyball Game.

After the game they walked across the road to Camp Randall to see if it was open.

It they walked in.

They took their own personal tour of the stadium...

Down on the field and Up in the stands.

The kids loved it...I'm glad he didn't get arrested...LOL.

Tips & Techniques for This Layout: 
* Use Cricut cut from the mini album keys for 12" x 12" pages
* Use the "rule of thirds" to create an invisible triangle that keeps the eye moving across the page, as done here with pops of Lagoon and Smoothie cardstock
* Enlarge "on this day" title from mini album key to create an impactful title on a 12" x 12" layout
* Use pieces of the My Crush Best Day Ever assortment to accent pages and for additional journaling spot options
* Use smaller-sized borders as accents
* Scallop Shimmer Trim with scallop punch
