Smile Today// The Ink Road

Hello my scrapbook friends.  I have my first layout designing for The Ink Road.  I am so excited and grateful for this opportunity.  For my first layout I want to keep it fun and colorful which is my style.  The photo is of my sister and I on her trip to Florida earlier this month.  I took her straight for brunch on the beach in Fort Lauderdale.  It was a little chilly but it does not stop us from taking a few selfies.  

I started out with cutting out all the banners with positive affirmations on the Celebrate patterned paper from the Dear Lizzy Fine and Dandy collection.  I started off with just ten and I thought it looks too simple, so I cut twenty more.  I then layered the acetate speciality paper from the collection called Dazzling over Cheerful Chatter and the layers looked fantastic over one another.  

The layers give this layout plenty of character.  I used the branding stripes from both sheets, the hearts along the bottom of the layout and the orange circle along the photo.  The tag I made myself from the backside of Celebrate and did my journaling on it.   For the title, I used the phrase wood veneer from the Crate Paper Wonder collection.  I heat embossed it with Pink Party from Recollection.  The rest of the ephemera is from Amy Tangerine in my stash.  

The last details of the gold resin heart is from the Crate Paper Hello Love collection, and the pink twine on the tag finish off the layout.  Below I have provided the process video to watch how this layout came together.  If you want to make a purchase at, use coupon code Evi10 for 10% off your purchase.
