Late Spring

Hey there Chic Tags friends! Mandy Kay Starner here to share a layout about one of my favorite times of the year... late spring. I love late spring almost as much as I love the fall... almost. The leaves have all come in, there's still a bloom or two popping up here and there, and the weather is still pleasant. One of the places we like to visit, especially this time of year is our local nature center. We pack a lunch and wander the trails for the afternoon. The last time we went, I took the camera to capture a bit of our adventure.

For my layout, I stuck exclusively to the Cloud 9 collection. To start, I layered up torn pieces of the  Goodness and Lovely papers. I cut vertical strips from the Sunday Best paper and layered them on top. I added one of the Gold Cards between the strips to balance out the gold. I really love the extra pop of shine the gold in this collection gives to my projects. After I added my photos I layered on some of the flair, mini icons, cardstock label stickers, a rub-on, and some acetate tidbits. It still needed a bit more gold, so I punched a couple of the gold foil sequins from one of the gold cards to sprinkle across my layout.
And here are a couple close ups...
