Gossamer Blue: Celebrate Grandma

My grandma celebrated her 90th birthday last fall. We had a huge party to celebrate her and so many family members and friends came to the party. The event may have been in the fall but I took advantage of some of the feminine embellishments (butterflies) in the April Gossamer Blue kits (yes, I am behind in sharing - May layouts coming soon!)

I added a few details to the butterflies by embellishing them with brads and buttons. I used the exclusive printables to showcase the photo of the potluck line.

 My go-to photo sizing when I create two page layout is to size several focal point photos to around 4×6 or 3×5. I then size other detail shots to 2×3. Because my photos were rather busy, I backed them with gray or black neutral patterned papers. I was able to draw out the colors in the photos with my embellishments.

Finally, for the title I cut a banner with a piece of the Plus One patterned paper and cut it to fit across both pages. The title went on the left-hand page and then I had room for journaling on the right-hand page.

Thanks for stopping by today! :)
