Do you ever have a photo that you hang on to for such a long time because you just can't figure out the perfect layout to create in order to do it justice? This is one of my biggest personal struggles with those pictures that are just "perfect" because I want my layouts to be just perfect...silly, am I right?! Well...I have a whole box of these amazing shots that aren't scrapbooked and I have made it a goal to reach into that box sometimes and create. This photo is one of those and it made it onto my favorite list because I just love this perspective of my son in action. He got this bow and arrow and I think that he must have shot at our front door about half a million times in a row in his pajamas because...why not?!?
For this layout, the Just Because collection was perfect! Those circles were begging to be fussy cut and they paired perfectly with this photo to create some "targets." I wanted to add a lot of texture to this more masculine layout so I grabbed a leftover strip of the grey patterned paper that looked painted and paired it up with some metal grid, some VERY old Magic Mesh (who remembers that product?!?!) and a piece of cut file.
Adding a few staples with my tiny attacher helps to keep those layers in place and also added to the grungy masculine feel. I added a little piece of the branding strip underneath my photo matting as well as a single puffy sticker phrase. My title is simply "Fire Away" and I am going to go back and add some journaling underneath the title itself. As a final touch, I felt like I needed a little more interest and jazz so I grabbed some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins in coordinating colors and that really gave it the final pop that I was looking for in my design.
I hope that you enjoyed seeing this quick and easy layout using the gorgeous Just Because collection. Make sure to stop by and say hello over on You Tube where I share a little more about my thought process as I was creating.
Today, I want to challenge you to grab one of those favorite photos that you have been waiting to scrapbook and create a layout!
