Love Grows Here! by Christine Meyer
One of my favorite things about collections from Simple Stories is that they almost always can be used for multiple topics. In the case of Bunnies & Blooms this rings true - it can tell your Easter stories or Spring stories. And really a whole lot in between as well! I used mine to create an Easter layout showcasing my four kids! Let's take a look!
While this collection is primarily made up of pastels, there is a mix of a few darker colors as well. Black is a color used throughout to add details to the collection and I worked that into my layout. There's also some really gorgeous navy blue which I didn't use today, but I'm definitely going to!
Because of the stone background in my pictures, I wanted to bring in a neutral brown/gray paper. The new Color Vibe 12 X 12 Cardstock "Aspen/White Notebook" was perfect. I shuffled through all of the choices in the package - but I liked the lightness of this one! 
I cut out a giant Easter Egg from the "Choose Happy" paper, using it as the first layer on my layout. Creating titles from a variety of products is such an easy way to create an interesting visual look.  I combined the Foam Stickers, some fussy cut flowers from the "4X6 Elements" Paper, Cardstock Stickers, and Decorative Brads
I'm always drawn to the Tags paper and for this layout I used it to mat my pictures and create a layer across the egg. I added Cardstock Stickers and Bits & Pieces words to the top part of each tag.
I fussy cut flowers to add a row of flowers just below the pictures. I popped up the pink/coral ones with 3D Foam Adhesives and then laid the yellow ones flat.
Typically Enamel Dots are my go to embellishment as I finish off my layout.  But the Decorative Brads are also a great choice and can enhance a look in a different way. As I had lots of black elements in my layout that were subtle, I felt that the Decorative Brads, with their metal outline, would be a more cohesive addition.
If you'd like to check out how this whole layout came together you can find the process video for it on my YouTube Channel!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
