Another CVS layout - Love you so much!

Hey everyone, I am having a bit of a Cocoa Vanilla week here on my blog and am sharing with you a layout using the More than Words collection. For this layout I am documenting a selfie of my little girl and I taken last month. Recently I won a prize of a matching handmade necklace and earrings. To our surprise the prize pack contained a little pair of clip on earrings too! Charlotte thinks they are the best thing ever and was so excited to wear matching earrings like her Mummy.

Here is the layout that I created: this is one of my favourite layouts that I have made recently. I love the whimsical feel from the cut file. 

I am passionate about telling our stories on my pages and being able to give the meaning behind the photos if there is one. Although my journaling may be short and sweet it gives the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ behind the photo. To finish off the journaling area I added an ephemera piece and a tiny word sticker.

The cut file that I have used as a feature on my layout is by Paige Evans and is available in the Silhouette Store. I loved the whimsical design of it and thought that it would compliment the More than Words collection nicely. For the flight path lines I used the bold Gossamer patterned paper and the hearts the Collage patterned paper. I decided to add butterflies fussy cut from the Gossamer paper and add them to the flight paths too.

Around the photo is layered with floral chipboard pieces, ephemera, stickers and vellum accents. I situated the photo to the bottom left of the page as the top of the page is busy and full of the cut file design. This helps keep the layout balanced.

I hope this layout and post has inspired you today to get creating!
