Be True To Who You Are

I love this saying, of course I was so very excited to come across it in the Silhouette store. I usually cut a lot of shapes at once, that way I don't have to turn on my Cameo every time I scrap, so I've had this cut out for a while now and was waiting for the right picture to come along to use it. It is perfect for Danika, she's a very strong outgoing little girl, she's at a point in her life that friends are really important, for the first time ever she cannot wait for school to start, I think its because she wants to see her friends, but this quote was very fitting for her at this moment.

To create this layout I used the July Hip Kit, filled with wonderful Fancy Pants, October Afternoon and  Studio Calico products. I mixed a lot of the manufacturers on this layout, that's a sign of a good kit, when all the products truly work together. Kimberly is a genius at creating kits. 


The title was cut out on white cardstock, I painted on Mister Huey mist to modify the color, mist is really easy and fun to use as paint. I layered the papers and pile on the embellishments. I also love the October Afternoon stamp that features glasses and a lovely quote, again perfect for my Danika.
