They're My Favorite!

I love embellishments, they are my favorite part of scrapbooking. Sure I like all the pretty patterned papers, but the embellishments really tie it all together and adds the finishing touch. It's Mary Ann here today, and I have a new layout to share that focuses not only on my photo, but on the cute embellishments too!

I wanted my photo (straight off my phone) to be the center of attention. From there it was just a matter of picking the perfect pieces to highlight and accent my photo. I started by die cutting my cardstock and layering it over the patterned paper. Next I did some machine stitching on the sun rays, then added the cute Hello flair button right on top of my photo.

I added a mix of wood veneer from the Let's Go and Cloud 9 collections. Road Trip is the perfect piece for this layout!

I especially love the geotag wood veneer so of course I had to add in one of those right about where Santa Cruz would be on the map, and then layered on the Sunshine & Happiness die cut.

So how about you, what's your favorite embellishment?
