DT choice – Get the story told

By Neela Nalam

September 17, 2016

Hi everyone! This is Neela with my DT choice for this month. I have so many photos and stories from our recent vacation. I really wanted to get the story of trip to the black sand beach told. In order to paint the picture of our trip, I wanted a photo to show the scenery and keep the embellishments on the layout minimal to make the journaling and the photo the highlight. Here is my layout:

Black sand with footer


The background that I used for this layout is from the Indigo hills collection from Pink Fresh Studio. It was perfect for this layout. The flowery strips at the top and the bottom are the reverse of this paper and they totally remind me of Hawaii and again were perfect for this layout.  I love the color of the thickers from freckled fawn. I totally appreciate it when the thickers can be repositioned.

At the bottom of the layout, I added a little strip of washi from the Dear Lizzy collection. I wanted to bring in a little bit of red to reflect the color of my son’s t-shirt. The heart stickers are also from the Indigo hills collection and provide the perfect finish for the layout.

Last but not the least, the simplicity of the layout allowed me tell the story I wanted to. Hope you will make layouts to get your stories told. Do share your creations on the Scrapbook Circle of Friends Facebook page.
