The layout I created is a glimpse of me at 4 years old. The swiss dotted patterned paper is from Jillibean Soup's Soup Staples line. It appears as border strips at the edge of the black card stock and backing to my Silhouette chevron shape. I love how black makes colors pop!
These bold, bright colors support the theme of a happy little girl, all dressed up and ready to have her picture taken. My hair has always been very straight, so I'm guessing my mother went to lots of trouble to get that little bit of curl.
The little chevron heart is part of a Stampin' Up! set that I wrote about in this post. I've read that the rainbow color scheme is a popular choice for weddings in 2013. I'd like to see that! But in the meantime, there's plenty more ideas and inspiration in the rest of the article here.
