"Jump" Layout

Good day to all my friends!! I had a rather "painful" week. My migraine acted up again!!!! So painful and torturing!!! Prayed that I will be healed!!!!

Anyway, want to share a layout today. I scraplift the design from a picture that I saw in goggle search!! Wanted to do a simple and fun layout for my son. This photo of him jumping is taken in Sydney 2 years ago.

"Jump" Layout

I used "Summer Fresh" collection by Simple Stories for the entire layout. Loved the fun and cheery colors of this collection. And I'm so in love with the denim and the burlap patterns. So I couldn't help but add the real burlap pieces into the design. This layout is considered as a clean layout for me as I didn't "dress up" the background at all.

I took cue from the original design of this collection and layered my own strips of papers to create this look. The sentiment "fun in the sun" is also taken from the sticker sheet of this collection. Added a strip of burlap here.

I cut burlap into triangles to make the sun. And I used this sun as the journalling tag. Foam strip was also added to give the dimensional effect. Recently I discovered that I love to pop some elements up. So in love with the foam strip by Scrapbook Adhesives!!!

This "medal" sticker from same collection is just perfect to describe this day!! See how my son enjoys his trip to Sydney. How I wish I can go travel again soon!!! Love the cooling weather, the beautiful architectures and sceneries!!

Well, hope I can share more with you all next time. Have a fun week. Do stop by My Little Shoebox and Frosted Designs for some inspirations!!! And not to mention, my 3rd Blog Candy. Thanks for visiting!!
