#DATENIGHT (Be Real: Instagram photos)

Hi friends!  Today I have a “Be Real” post today featuring Instagram photos, using the May Kit Here & Now.  I really love this prompt, because I often post photos that I know I’ll want to scrap.  It was nice to go through my Instagram photos, and remember “oh yeah, I wanted to scrap about that, but never did!”  My layout #DATENIGHT is about some fancy events that my husband and I went on last year…special, because we NEVER go on fancy date nights, lol!

To create my layout, I cut out 3 pieces of pattern paper to the size of my photo.  I adhered the paper to a piece of white cardstock, and then sewed a cross/grid between the paper.  I added my photo with foam tape, to give it a little lift.  Then, I embellished the squares with various pieces from the kit that went with my date night theme.  I love the journaling card, and how it looks like a ticket stub.  I added my title to the bottom of the layout (I really love this alpha set from the May embellishment add-on You + Me).  Then, I noticed that my layout was looking a little bottom heavy, so I added a little strip of pattern paper to the top, and sewed it.  To finish my layout, I added a few heart embellishments and ink splatters.

I love how my layout turned out, and I’m finally glad I scrapped these photos…especially since one of them was taken over a year ago!

Have a fabulous day!
