Feeling inspired by Pinterest lately???  I found this print awhile back & knew it would be something I'd definitely want to use in the future.  I just loved the mix of color and font size.

I happened to be flipping through some images in the Silhouette online store last night and found a similar title that I knew would work perfectly with this photo of Nicholas & I from last year.  I pulled together some soft greens & pinks, as well as some neutral browns from the new Melrose kit.  Here is what I came up with . . .

Even before I started creating, I knew I wanted a circle lattice background behind my photo.  I played around with a few papers, but ultimately decided to use vellum.  I loved the softness of it among the greens & pinks.  To make it seen a bit more, I stitched a grid patterned through the circles.

Although I cut the title from one sheet of patterned paper, I decided to add some "pop" by using one of the stitched vellum embellishments from the kit in place of the "o".  I also used a sticker arrow, cut into 2, as the equals sign.  With so many fun bits & pieces in the kit, it was easy to find ways to dress up my die-cut title :)
