Remember on the A-Team when Hannibal Smith would say, "I love it when a plan comes together"? Well I love it when a layout comes together. I was thinking about my daughter's prom photos and then poof! this layout came together in my head using the newest sketch featured on the Sketch-n-Scrap site. My paper collection of choice..........Echo Park's Victoria Gardens. It was funny when I purchased this I had no clue as to how I would use it, I just liked the colors. I started to fear that it would have a permanent place on my shelf but no way! This paper was made for these photos, which is good because I have lots more photos, lol.
So for this layout I used my Papertrey Ink doily die, which is becoming a regular go-to tool for me. The butterflies are from Making Memories and I love using them; I am going to be so sad when I run out of those :(. For the banner strips I wanted to do something different and since I was using double sided paper, I cut the three strips, punch one end with a decorative border punch and rolled the other end down to see the other side of the paper. Another special touch on this layout out is my white on white border strip the I made with a vine border punch near the bottom of the page. To top it off I added a generous amount of bling and Voila, you have a layout done in minutes.............okay 90 minutes to be exact but who is counting, lol.
