This AnnabelleLovin’ This Life” title was perfect for this photo. My photo is printed at 6×8 it fits perfectly right on top! I love the way this looks!

Immediately when I saw the “Kind Hearts” paper I knew that I wanted to use that for a background! And then I saw the rainbow on the “Hope for a New Day” paper and simply HAD to cut that out! Voila, my background design sorted!

I’ve added some machine stitching to each of the rainbow arches in matching thread colours. Then, also inked the edges with matching Distress Oxide Inks in the following colours; Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch, Seedless Preserves, Hickory Smoke, Abandoned Coral and Spun Sugar.

I wanted to add in a couple of layers behind my photo and found 2 coloured cardstocks to match. The yellow in this collection is just gorgeous and REALLY made my photo pop!! After I added that yellow behind my photo I wanted MORE!! I didn’t have the right shade so I used a stamp pad and added ink to a white cardstock piece using a blending brush! This was going to create a border around the entire background.

Oh my, I was so loving how this was looking but wanted to add a few more fun touches! But not too many to cover up that fun background! lol
I used a tag from the Journalling Tags in this collection, tucked behind my photo and also added in some stickers and die cuts from the card stock stickers and ephemera packs. A small cluster to the top right of the photo and then an even smaller one to bottom left.

At this point I didn’t want to cover more of the background so I grabbed the puffy alphas and spelled out “Esperance”. A few enamel dots sprinkled and that completed my page!

I am totally loving working this collection and super excited to share my next creation with you so make sure you head back! Until then, happy scrapping!
