Go, See, Ride! by Nathalie DeSousa

Hi there Simple Stories friends!

Nathalie with you today to share a new layout using the beautiful and fun new Say Cheese Main Street Collection. This collection is perfect to document all the fun activities at the park, but how about all the memories leading to getting there?  Well, the collection works perfect for all types of memories. Let me show you!



I had a few pictures of my Goddaughter the day before (we went shopping) the park visit, and all she wanted to do was go on all the rides she could find on the way. So I used one of the pictures for this page.  



To start, I used a template to cut the outline of the mouse's ears from Grey Dots Basic set and then hand-stitched a border around the outline.   In the meanwhile, I used an alpha digital cut file to electronically cut the words, "MAGIC" and "FUN" from a few of the papers from the collection.  Using the negative outline of the cut out and a pencil, I lightly drew the image onto  Color Vibe Basics - Cream  paper.  A bit of foam adhesive and a ruler helped to attached all the words to the inside of the pencil lines. Once all the words were attached, then I glued the stitched outline paper on the background.  This creates the illusion of an outline filled with fun words.




Since the background is embellishing the page already, I simply added some of the 3x4 and 4x4 cut apart cards as layers behind the picture and then used some of the super cute die cuts, stickers, foam adhesives to create clusters at the corners of the picture.  I used the small black foam sticker to add the title for this page to the left of the photo.



To balance the page, I created a small cluster at the top right corner of the large ears outline.  There are so many fun phrases in the Sticker tablet and 12x12 combo sheet that it made it so easy to embellish the page. To connect the page together, I added small stars to some of the words, making sure they softly connect the clusters together.



I love how this turned out, and the look of the background of this page.  Remember to check the SAY CHEESE  MAIN STREET collection, you are going to love the possibilities of these designs!
