A Layout in Ten Minutes or Less…

I am sharing a photo heavy layout about an everyday moment with my children that I created in less than ten minutes! On Saturday mornings I love to sleep late and then walk to the corner Starbucks with my youngest son and daughter. On the way we pass by a creek and usually stop to feed some ducks and look at what the frogs, tadpoles, and fish are up to. On this day, we found a tiny baby aquatic turtle. I was inspired by the exclusive “Never lose your sense of wonder” card in this month’s kit to create this layout of this particular memory.

To create this page I printed 4 3 x 3 photos on my Canon Selphy. By varying the angles and how close-up I let the photos tell the story. The most time consuming step was fussy cutting some leaves from one of the Pinkfresh Studio papers. I left them neutral as part of the white space around the photos, so they do not make the background “busy” while still hinting at the nature theme of the layout and our wildlife observing activities. Add the finishing touches of a few strategically placed puffy stickers and viola! A complete page in no time! Now, what am I going to do with all my free time? Scroll down for my October Bucket List!
