Mr. & Mrs.

A beautiful and touching layout by Julie Bonner! 

I love this picture of my son & my best friend's daughter.  We had just celebrated our Christmas with them & Ryan was so into the doll we bought for her.  He is so excited for our own baby to arrive & was asking me all kinds of questions about how to take care of it :)  I loved how the 2 of them are hovering over the little doll, taking care of her together.  They reminded me of a married couple with their newborn :)

The close-ups showcase making the most of your embellishments by cutting them in half - a great way to multiply the embellishments you have & be able to spread them through the layout.  You'll notice in the first close-up the Maya Road sheer doily and the patterned paper circle have been cut in half.  They are used here & again on the lower left side of the layout.  The second close-up displays a journaling die-cut that I cut in half.  It created a great accent at the top of the page that was both decorative and functional for journaling.
