Hello Simple Stories friends!
It's Nathalie here with a bit of inspiration featuring the new HERE + THERE collection.   Let's first talk about this amazing collection.   It is so perfect for all sorts of documenting -not just travel-, but the icons and color palette are just sublime!    I had such a fun time creating this new layout. 
I am in love how this page turned out! It seriously took no time to put together with the help of pieces from the entire collection.
My starting point was the chipboard frame that looks like a photographic slide, it was just the perfect element to anchor my photo to the spread, then the rest just bloomed from it.
I used a few of the 4x6 journal cards as layers behind the photos, then added pieces from the 6x8 paper pad as a way to bring interest and balance the page.   Once the paper layers were ready, it was then time to create the background.   For this, I glued a letter size white cardstock sheet to the center of the You Are Here paper, then attached a piece of Rest + Relaxation paper to the top part of the background.  
The choices to embellish this project were endless. I simply started picking pieces from each of the ephemera packs to create clusters around the paper layers.    Those florals are just a-ma-zing!!  Then just added a few stickers and brads for extra sentiment and texture.
For the title of the page, I used a combination of Foam Stickers and Chipboard pieces.   It all just worked seamlessly together (and I will need a second set of the foam stickers - perfect title ideas!!)
I added a few enamel dots around each of the embellishment clusters to complete the page.   Have I mentioned how much I love this page!!! Be sure to check the entire HERE + THERE collection, you are going to fall in love with it!!
