"Life is Good in the Summer" by Penny Grimsley
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Echo Park; Embellishments: Echo Park; Punch: Martha Stewart, Jenni Bowlin; Twine: Doodlebug
Variation #1 - I changed the photo size to 3 x 3 and matted them on white, like they are Polaroids.
Variation #2 - I added a cardstock mat under the background paper after trimming it to 11x11.
Variation #3 - I did simple journaling with a tab punch and sticker strips on my photos.
Variation #4 - I placed the title where the journaling cluster was shown.
Variation #5 - I widened and lengthened the cardstock strip and used a border punch to help ground all the bright colors.
Variation #6 - I tied twine around the bottoms of the "Polaroids".
Variation #7 - I eliminated the little butterflies, as I felt they would be "too much" with the twine.

Variation 1: I swapped out the banner for a tree branch to fit my theme.
Variation 2: This layout called for a subtitle, so I added it with more letter stickers just under my journaling.
