"Peaceful" Layout

This layout took me a while to think through... I wanted to use these photos as they were taken last spring, shortly before I had met my weight loss goal, but I really like the way they turned out. I have very few photos of myself and these are some of the better ones. Unfortunately, when I was colouring in the dimensional elements letters, it wasn't until afterwards that I realized I had used sunset ink instead of sorbet ink... and they were already adhered down at that point. I guess it adds a different touch, so I'll learn to live with it. 

I really like the clusters with the gold flourishes mixed with the Clementine Cottage Assortment pieces and the Creme Brulee flowers and I am happy with the random stitching around the layout and the photo mat as well.
