{5th Grade Promotion} with the "Vintage Spring" Kits

Hello!  It's Meridy here today, and I have a layout to share with you using the "Vintage Spring" Daily Diary and Classic kits.  Since this layout is about my daughter, I was able to use lots of the feminine elements from the kits.

I started with the background 12x12 patterned paper, added a strip of patterened paper down the left hand side of the layout, and embellished that seam with some of the gold glitter washi tape.  Next, I added 6x6 layers from the Daily Diary kit.  I even used one of the journal cards as a layer under the smaller photo.

After placing the photos where I wanted them, it was time to add embellishments.  I just loved the pack of floral embellishments that came in this month's kit.  So I pulled a few roses in various colors and started placing them to frame the main photo.  There were a few distractions in the original photo that I didn't want to show up on the layout, so that is why I placed the flowers in this configuration.  

Next, I added the paper rosette with the gold heart, a phrase sticker, and the label sticker stamped with the date.  Finally, it was time for me to go back in and add the greenery and leaves to the flowers.  I just adore the gold leaf trim in the Daily Diary kit, I used it in longer pieces and cut individual leaves from it as well.  It is so beautiful, I can't help using it over and over again.

Finally, I was able to use the beautiful rose gold Thickers and the mini gold letter stickers to create my title, and with that, the layout is complete.  

Thank you for stopping by today!!!  Have a great week!
