While my layouts are usually less is more, and not full of patterned paper, I wanted to play around with paper on this one…I of course had to add a few dies as accents on my layout.

Adventure 1a
This picture of my kids is from when they went zip lining in Maui a few years back.  Its one of those few times where they are both looking at you, smiling, and not making weird or funny faces…you know how it is sometimes.  😉

I started with a neutral base for my layout, and thought I would add some fun patterned paper. I hand cut a few tag shapes from the patterns and layered them next to my photo.

I used varying elements from the

Spellbinders S2-216 Die D-Lights Amused 1 and Spellbinders  S2-227 Die D-Lites Springtime sets to create little accents in the upper right and lower left corners of my ivory layer.

The tag shape is from the Spellbinders S2-204 Die D- Lites Signs of Spring 2 collection – it seemed like a perfect way to anchor the word “adventure”

(which is from the Spellbinders S2-201 Die D-Lites Going Places collection) and not have it lost in the patterns.  The arrow is also from the Going Places set.
