Keeping it Simple

Wanted to share another layout that I did, this one I started and finished within 30mins. I have been saving this paper for the perfect layout and this is it. The photo that I am journaling is one taken by my talented cousin Leslie Ann! I didn’t want to take away from the photo so I simply added some black behind the photo then used some digital elements to create the Journal tag. To dress it up a bit I added a few rhinestones and the flower. What do you think? I like how it turned out, keeping it simple allows for the photo to shine!

Journal Spot reads: Wonderful, beautiful, Amazing Are just a few of the words that come to mind when I see this photo that Leslie Ann took! My beautiful cousin has a great eye! She is a wonderful photographer and I’m so proud of her! Can’t wait to see more of her work! Love you cousin! Thanksgiving 09’
