What Matters Most

Hello Cut Shoppe friends! Today I am sharing a layout about true friendship - something I believe all of us need. 

To create this layout, I used the Bountiful Blessings cut file along with Fancy Pants Designs' Golden Days Collection. Both work perfectly with this photo of my daughter and her best friends.

I began this layout using a basic grid design - I loved the papers in the collection and wanted to use a bit of everything. Also, a grid is a great place to start if you are stuck in terms of design. For this, I cut nine 3x3 squares and then cut slightly smaller coordinating squares to place on top of each.

With the grid in place, I used the feathers from Bountiful Blessings to create "leaves" for my cluster of floral embellishments, which I placed on the left side of the photo.

Next, I stapled the "My tribe" clear overlay to the bottom-right side of the photo with my Tiny Attacher. I followed this with a bottom border sticker.

My final step was to embellish the remaining squares, which I tried to keep simple. The photo speaks so much to me that I wanted to keep the embellishments somewhat simple. I also chose not to journal because I love the photo, and again it speaks volumes about these girls' friendship without needing explanation.
