Smile Today Layout

Hello!  How's your weekend going?  I'm having a busy one but it has been so fun!  My husband and I were treated to a night out at the Kennedy Center last night- including babysitting!  We saw Cirque de la Simphonie which was a wonderful show!  The cirque acts made it so fun to watch- it's amazing what people can do with their bodies!  It was my first time seeing the National Symphony Orchestra and I really enjoyed it!  My husband and I don't take many dates so this was a real treat.

I thought I'd pop on today and share a layout I created using the latest Inspired Blueprints sketch as my inspiration.  I love how this one turned out:

The photo is of the girls on the first day of school!  They were so excited and couldn't stop smiling!

I used the papers and sticker sheets from the Vintage Bliss collection by Simple Stories.  I love the colors in this line!  I created a border around my page with word stickers and created my title cluster with a circle cut from the wood plank paper and stickers.  I powdered and popped up the flowers to add a little depth.

The original sketch had banner flags down the left side.  I switched them out for round tags strung onto a piece of twine.  I love how this element turned out:

This sketch was fun to play along with and I hope you get a chance to use it, too!  Pop over to the Inspired Blueprints blog to see the original sketch as well as what the other team members did with it!

Well, I'm off to enjoy my Sunday!  The girls have declared it a jammie day but I'm going to try and talk them into visiting our local state park instead- it's just beautiful outside!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love that paper, too! I love what you did with the circles and the words to make a frame. So outside the boyish! Clever!
