I think I may have missed documenting a couple of weeks in June, but I was too excited to start on photos of my sister's visit. The last time I saw her in person was about 4 years ago, so we were both super excited to spend some time together.
The "there's no place like home" card was perfect for this week. I could have definitely used a few more copies of it for other projects! To coordinate the rest of the spread, I drew from the colors in the card: yellow, pink, navy blue, and orange.
Before I added the vellum pocket, the spread looked unbalanced with more color on the right side from the enlarged photo. I love how the orange coordinates perfectly with the orange in the "there's no place like home" card, the benefit of using a kit I suppose! I used the stamp set from the June Studio Calico PL kit to fill in the empty chipboard banner.
Since I had extra photos I wanted to include, so I used a page protector with 4 2x2 squares. It was feeling very busy with the large photo on the next side, so I placed a patterned paper from the Dear Lizzy "Lucky Charm" line between the insert and the photo.
Here's a look at the spread without the extra insert. Since this visit was pretty special, I decided to send the 6x8 photo for printing (my home photo printer only does 4x6). This was the first time I've used a 6x8 photo, and I love how it ended up looking!
Thank you for taking a look :)
