Before I tell you about the design of this scrapbook layout, let me just tell you how much I love that my kids are such goofballs. That top photo just cracks me up.
Now on to the important design tips….
I used an assortment of paper from the In the Pink My Crush book for this layout, with a Whisper cardstock background. The muted colors are a great backdrop for my photos, but they seemed a little blah on their own.
I could have added a brighter pop of color, something in the same color family already in the patterns, such as the bright blue of Close to My Heart’s Ocean cardstock. But instead I chose to pull my color choice from my photos and use black.
Both my son and daughter have black on their clothing, and they have dark hair, so the black really draws the eye through the layout, from the title to the photos to the embellishments.
