DT Choice: Beautiful day layout

Hey guys!  Today I have a DT Choice layout for you.

I am using September’s Shine Bright kit and Be You add-on.  Also, I am absolutely loving the printable this month…I love the hexagon shapes, the colors, and the journaling spots!

Last fall, we went to the Texas State Fair, and I’m finally documenting it in a layout.  (Yum…corndogs and fresh lemonade!)  I had several photos I wanted to include in my layout, and when I have a lot of photos, I turn to my go-to grid layout.

To create my layout, I first decided where I wanted my photos, and hexagons to be.  Once I decided on their positions, I measured, and drew a grid on my pattern paper using a pencil.  Then I hand stitched on top of the lines.  Once I was done with the stitching, I adhered my photos with low profile foam tape for just a little dimension.  Then I added the hexagons with adhesive just down the middle, and “fluffed” out the sides for even more dimension.  I embellished my layout with stickers and a butterfly punched from another pattern paper, and then I added the title.  To finish off the layout, I trimmed off a little bit of the pattern paper on each side, adhered it to another 12×12 pattern paper, and machine stitched it into place.

I love how colorful & bright my layout turned out, and I love the grid.  I hope you do too!

Have a lovely day!
