Beautiful Brielle.....a scrapbook layout

 This layout features my beautiful granddaughter Brielle.  This picture was taken last August at our trailer at Oasis Beach. Isn't she absolutely gorgeous!  

The inspiration for this layout came from the colors in her bathing suit....I wanted something fun and summery.  

I chose a solid blue background color.  Then I took white cardstock and painted a sunburst pattern in blues yellows and greens .  Once I had this dried I cut my cardstock into 1 1/2 inch horizontal strips and distressed the edges of each with my distresser. Next I took the strips and sewed down the center of each strip on my sewing machine for added interest. Then I simply glued the strips onto the blue cardstock, allowing the blue background to show through. 

I matted Brielle's picture on a different shade of blue mat. Then I added a couple of pre-printed tags and a journal tag.  A couple of wooden elements completed this page.
