We Dance Together

Hello!
Today is my very first post as a Design Team Member for
THE PAPER BAKERY

The October Scrapbook Kit, Welcome Home,  includes the new
 collection from Dear Lizzy...5th & Frolic, as well as 
Amy Tangerine's Ready, Set, Go!  This paper kit is just right for
any photos pertaining to home, love, family and happiness ♥

My project today is a 12x12 layout using one of the 
Ready, Set, Go! papers, stickers from the 5th & Frolic sticker booklet
and other embellishments from the October Kit.
 I took the 4x6 photo at the top and cropped the bottom two photos down so that
they would measure the same width across.

The kit also comes with this cool 1.5" chevron ribbon...it had me thinking "arrow" so
I cut one end into a point and the other into a dovetail.  I also pleated the ribbon just
a bit to give it more dimension and interest.

The icing on the cake is when you get to start adding the extra little bits.
You know I love the 'visual triangle', so I formed one using small punched circles
and a few flecks of shimmery ink spray (I used Fireworks Pear Tart by Tsukineko)

I applied the small banner stickers with a foam dot and then strung a bit of
baker's twine over the top.  Adding the bow at one end gives the appearance that
it's really suspended from the page :)

If you love Dear Lizzy and have been anticipating the release of 5th & Frolic, then
why not try The Paper Bakery if you haven't already :)  And there will be mixed
media kits available as well...all monthly kits coordinate beautifully together!
