You are my sunshine - DT layout for Paige Evans + Silhouette

Hey there crafty friends,

I'm popping in today with a new layout I've created for the Paige Evans + Silhouette Design Team.

I've chosen the Umbrella cut file (design ID: #248368) for my page because I've had some photos of my kiddo in a raincoat on my desk for ages and thought this file would fit perfectly! I've paired it with the beautiful new Pick-Me-Up collection. As much as I wasn't sure about this collection when I first saw it, it's quickly becoming my new favourite! It's so versatile and the theme can be used for so many things!

I decided to cut several umbrellas in different sizes for my background, sort of creating my own patterned paper. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to back them at this point, I just started with a floral paper, then a scrap piece of yellow and then it occurred to me, it would look nice in some rainbow colors. That's what I did, and I loved it so much that I backed all the other umbrellas the same way too. 

I arranged them on my background paper the way I planned it in Silhouette Studio previously, then glued them down. I didn't use foam adhesive because they had a natural curve that I wanted to keep. I only used glue on their middle sections. This way I still have plenty of dimension.

I layered some tissue paper behind my photo and tucked some labels in there too. I went through all embellishments in this collection and picked out everything that could possibly work. I probably ended up using most of them! I selected some chipboard phrases, die cuts, puffy stickers, rub-ons and I also cut some phrases out of the 2x2 paper pad!

Aaaand the coolest thing! I even found two little umbrella buttons in the haberdashery pack, ha! I thought it was meant to be!

For my title I went with the small navy foam alphas, because the title I chose was quite long. I wrote my journaling, stamped my date and done!

I hope you like this page as much as I do! I just love rainbow colors, they make me smile. Add to that this sweet photo and I'm all happy! I hope it has the same effect on you guys!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day full of sunshine!
