Always Curious

This is my last layout of the strawberry picking photos. I think it's one of my favorite pictures of that day! Elizabeth always wants to explore and see everything around her. One reason I love this photo is how clearly it shows the height differences of my daughter and her friend. Her mom and I were college roommates and best friends. There's quite a bit of height difference between the two of us. We find it funny to see the same friendship blossoming between our daughters with that same height difference.

This was one of the first 6x6 challenges I set for myself. It started with the purple and white striped paper you see in the layer stack. It's a Dear Lizzie paper from 5th and Frolic. However, I couldn't find another sheet with purple to combine it with! Super frustrating. Going through my other stacks, I came across Studio Calico's Lemon Lush line. It has that same purple on some papers including an orange with white, purple, yellow, and blue flowers. That was the color inspiration for the entire page. I ended up using that as my photo mat. You can see a bit of the pattern in the tab by the title too. I used six sheets plus the cut apart for a total of seven papers used on this layout. The background 12x12 sheet is from Crate Paper's Storyteller line called Tomorrow.

Great job using all of those different patterned papers. They all work together, and they all look nice against that bold background paper. Inking the edges helps to
see each one. Yeah for using your Stickles stash. Nice title work, and beautiful cursive handwriting. Well done. ♦
