Go Fly a Kite

When I was little, I always had so much fun flying kits with my grandpa...well, we probably spent more time getting them out of trees than actually flying, but it was still fun!  That's been a long time ago, but kites are still fun.  We grabbed some for the kids when we were at the beach earlier this year, and the new Go Fly a Kite cut file set was just what I needed to document the photos.

I loved this set so much, I ended up using every image from it.  I cut all three kites in varying sizes and used a mix of patterned papers from the Life Is Beautiful collection from Fancy Pants.  And I couldn't have found a more perfect title for the layout, than Go Fly a Kite, so I cut it from one of the Fancy Pants patterned papers.

I wanted a little bit more color in the background of the layout, since I used a White cardstock base, so I sprinkled on three different Color Shine colors.  Then I cut the cloud designs from the Go Fly a Kite set and clustered them on the layout.  I finished the layout with a mix of embellishments from the Life Is Beautiful collection.  But I loved that most of the layout was created with nothing more than the cut files and patterned paper!

The Go Fly a Kite cut file set is now available in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store along with two other new designs!  Make sure you stop by the shop to check them out!!
