Guest Designer Day at Jillibean

Today I have another layout up at Jillibean Soup for my June Guest Designer spot.  This one uses Blossom Soup and a sweet pic of my youngest son.

His Smile Makes My Heart Soar

Normally, I try to match my photos to the colors in the papers, but I didn't really have any pictures with a lot of pink and blue in them.  Instead, I used the less dominant colors in the papers (yellow and green).  I love how it turned out.  I plan to play around more with how I choose my photos in the future.

To create this paper-pieced kite, I printed a kite out on my computer to use as a template.  I cut the parts from four different patterns so that I could use more of them on my layout.  And then I finished it off with some Jillibean Soup kraft twine.  And since I had a pretty big space available for my title, I decided to use a variety of Jillibean Soup alphas for a long title.  I think it adds a lot of interest to the layout. 

And, of course, I had to use some Journaling Sprouts.  I sprinkled them around the page--one up top for the journaling and a few in a cluster on the right side of my photo.  LOVE all the different shapes and colors you get on a sheet.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll have my last (and favorite) project up on the Jillibean Soup blog next Tuesday.  Hope you'll check it out.
