I completed the "Feeling Blue" layout about six months ago. I always liked the use of white space and bling but still felt that something was missing. The other night it hit me. This layout was missing the journaling. Since I went to CKC Valley Forge, I've been trying to make my layouts more about the story and not just the pictures. So here it is -- the story of our night at Blue Man Group.
Journaling reads: Three blue mimes entertained us on our last night of vacation. Highlights of the show included: fantastic percussion music, a spotlight on late arrivals, a toilet paper mosh pit and meeting Blue Man Group!
I'm not one to use a lot of bling but I love the square framing Mark and Melissa. Also, I usually hand write my journaling so I think the computer-printed journaling adds an interesting design element and helps anchor the page.
Ingredients: DCWV cardstock; Stampin' Up! Headline Alphabet and Small Alphabet stamps; Stampin Up! Brilliant Blue and Basic Black inks; Heidi Swapp bling.
