More Simple Stories...

Next with my Simple Stories DT kit, I created a layout showcasing one of my favourite recent photos. Here we are "stuck" in Washington, DC last December on route home from Florida. We took a walk on this gorgeous golf course on a bright but very cold morning. We had nothing with us besides the clothes on our backs! Always make a "silk purse out of a sow's ear" I say!

I used some of the strips Simple Stories is famous for to make a backdrop for my main photo. I included our boarding passes too which is kind of fun. Sometimes I forget to put memorabilia like that on my pages. I like how these K&Co sparkly black chipboard letters really coordinate with the papers. And the mini alphas from the Simple Stories sticker sheet really finished off my title.





I used my Dienamics banner dies to make this element. I really like how it turned out! I cut the acetate snowflakes from my kit in half and machine sewed them down. Pretty cool! And another strip (this time with words) from the patterned paper added another nice element here.



Thanks for checking out my DT reveal...more to come!
