I really liked this sketch and didn’t want to vary from it too much but in order to make it work for me I
had to change the square size from 4”x4” to 3.5”x3.5”. By reducing the size of the squares just this little bit, I was able to leave margins between the squares as well as use the dark blue cardstock base as a frame. Since I had the margins separating the squares, I chose not to stitch between them and instead I added a little stitching to the two turquoise blue borders.
My photo under the title is smaller than 5”x7” so I continued the title underneath it and added some striped paper that I also included throughout the layout. I was glad to finally use these large brads that have been in my stash for a while but felt they were kind of plain so I layered stickers on top of them.
