Picture My Life - 25 Day Challenge. Day 8.

Tonight I want to share a simple layout that was one of my Create and Takes from my Fall Open House earlier in the month.  The layout's simplicity leaves much room for those little details that I adore as well as (gasp for some :)) white space.  Because of the "painted" look to the polka dot paper, I selected the "painted" background and texture paper for the base instead of a cardstock.  This is actually the back side of the polka dot pattern so either bulk Seaside paper is needed, or 2 packs of the paper as a total of 4 sheets are needed.  And because I am incorporating a PML card, and the PML cards have rounded corners, I also chose to round the corners of my photos for a more balanced appearance; this created a softer feel to the layout.  For the embellishments I "collection-swapped" and used the foam sticker shapes from the Chalk It Up collection--the two collections share the Sorbet color and the Lagoon from Chalk It Up accented the shades of blue in the Seaside Collection very nicely.  Other than that, we cut a few pennants and the layout was complete.  I encouraged my scrapbookers to journal in either a pennant or in place of one of the photos depending on how much they had to journal.  As this layout is in a series of layouts from one single event for me, I choose to let the PML card be my journaling, and then sub journal "my family" in my pennant for just a little more personal touch.  Though rare from myself, this is certainly a do-able 2 hour or less layout from start to finish.
