The October swag bag from Paper Issues was packed with fun Fall colors to create this collage of my four kids at a recent photo shoot at the nearby Lochness Park.
I love the AmericanCrafts wood grain card stock that I used as the background. It fits with the rustic textures in the design layers. 
I am linking it up to the Gratitude issue on the paper Issues blog.

Be the Good

This white outline map paper was in a Studio Calico kit and was perfect for the longer title I wanted to use. I added Amy Tangerine Finders Keepers and Thickers from her previous Rise and Shine collection.
I added silver stickers from Pink Paislee Bella Rouge, black stitching, silver enamel dots, and white acrylic paint splatters.
Thanks for the inspiration, Paper Issues November mood board!

You Shine

I had watercolored the triangles for a layout background from a class lesson from Ashley Horton for Big Picture Classes and put them to use in ombré fashion on this beach page. 
I added stitching in various places to add texture and interest.
Check out The Cut Shoppe for the cut file for the word Shine and all of my other favorites.
