An Adventurous Layout

Good morning, folks, it's Susie here today and I have a 12" layout to show you.  It's been a wee while since I've done this size of layout, but I decided that I had too many photos to include to make a smaller layout!

So, I started with a 12" piece of green card and gathered all of the green card and journalling bits from Sarah's A Few of My Favourite Things Kits.  (Outdoors and nature seemed to demand green backgrounds!!)  I loved the "Life is a Wonderful Adventure" card and wanted that to be my centre piece.  I cut out the ends of the banner with a craft knife so that I could layer my photos behind the banner, like so:

There is also a strip of the green leaf card and some of the Snip and Stick leaves added to my layout.   Also included in the kit was this fantastic checklist banner:

I decided to secure it with a couple of eyelets as I thought that it suited the theme.  But, if you decide to curl the banner to add dimension, like I did, its best to wait until your ink has actually dried, otherwise you leave smudges, doh!!!!!

I added a little journalling to complete the memories but refrained from adding any other items to my already rather busy page.

Have a lovely day, folks.
