Simple Stories: Sweet Cousins

Simple Stories has started monthly challenges and for the month of May, we are focusing on the Elements in the collections. I don't very often get to work with the "Awesome" collection but I couldn't resist using it for this photo of the girls with their cousins last fall. We surprised grandpa and grandma with a photo shoot of all of them and how lucky were we to find matching shirts for all 4?! :)

I used "Awesome" 4 x 6 Journaling Card Elements #1 (#2210) as a mat behind my photo. I only wanted numbers 1-4 to show so I covered the #5 with a star sticker. Next, I cut apart the 2 x 12 Border & 4 x 12 Title Strip Elements (#2214) and used the striped piece with the file folder tab on the left of my layout. I placed an "Awesome" sticker on the tab. Finally, I also used the 6 x 12 Page Elements (#2215). To give the piece a little more texture, I machine stitched the four larger pieces of patterned paper and distressed the edges.

To enter the challenge by June 1st, you can check out the details and more inspiration from the design team on the Simple Stories blog.

Have a great day! More soon! :)
