Double Layouts

Hi all! Today I have two of my favorite pages EVER that I made with two different Simple Stories lines. The first one features their Vintage Bliss line, which is absolutely perfect for pictures of my son coloring with chalk.
We have finally had some good weather and have been spending every single day outside. Luke loves to pull the chalk out and write his name or fill in some of the bricks in the driveway!
I really love this paper with the outlined butterflies. I used the coordinating 'filled' butterflies to include as a reference to coloring. It helps support the title and adds a lot of interest. I also have a big thing for brads right now so I found a cute way to incorporate them on this page.
My next scrapbook page highlights one of my favorite daily activities- story time. What you don't get from seeing these photos is the way my husband narrates stories. It's usually in the voice of someone famous, like Seinfeld or Harry Caray. Hilarious to listen to, cute to watch.
Luke also loves this ritual, because after Dad reads to him, he gets to read it himself. We love listening to him making up the story as he goes as he's a very creative guy!
This page came together really quickly. I just pulled some bits from the 12x12 papers and the 4x6 Sn@p! journaling cards to frame the picture. I cut the title with my silhouette and used dimensional adhesive to give the page some depth.
I also used brads on this page, but a lot more heavily. I created a line of colored brads to help echo the direction of my main patterned paper strip, but also here in the arrow brad. I really love 'spinners'!
That's all for today, I really appreciate all who stop by to check out my projects!
