About a Girl - Smile

I decided to play with the second challenge for June over at About A Girl.  I love this site as it allows me to indulge in my love for all things scrappy and girly!  The latest challenge was to use bright colours and patterns, which is a style I enjoy.

My layout is about my sister who was my head bridesmaid.  I love the photo, as it was taken on one of the disposable cameras at our wedding (nearly 10 years ago).  Being black and white it worked perfectly for this challenge.

Here is my layout:

I used some Echo Park, and Jillibean Soup (background patterned paper) for this layout.  It was lovely to dive into my stash and use some product I've had for several months.  I decided that I didn't need to add much embellishment, as I wanted the hot air balloon patterned paper to feature.  I've been adding a doily to pretty much every layout lately, I love them!  I also doodled some lines around the papers to separate them, and finished with some mist.

Thanks for looking.  I've been blogging for 2 months now and love it!  Please follow me (not with Google+ though. . .)   as I have lots more to share, and I'm participating in a special blog hop in mid July!
