Simple Stories You are Here - Life is Wonderful by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

This month I am playing with some of the gorgeous new Simple Stories collections. Love them all and couldn't decide which to get so bought them all!

First up I am sharing a layout using the travel themed You are Here collection. Very tropical but certainly not limited to travel photos! In my layout Life is Wonderful I have used an everyday photo of my son, but as the light was reflecting so nicely on his face I thought the tropical themed paper would suit the photo perfectly. 

I adored the wood grain background paper, however the bottom of the page has lots of travel stamps and tags along it, so I have cut off that section and turned the paper upside down .I have then used the floral paper on the reverse side and run that along the top of my page, before adding a some torn chevron pattern and a strip of contrasting orange. 

Next I have layered up some papers behind my 5x7 photo and used a variety of embellishments from the You are Here collection and my favourite coloured yellow flowers, love how tropical these look and they have a hessian texture so not too soft & girly. 

My title Life is Wonderful is from 2Crafty, inked in blue to match the papers and I have added some orange mini market stickers to compliment the blue. 

Thanks for stopping by
till next week
