We love to visit the Fair every year, and this was the first time that all three kids were just the right height to ride the kiddie rides. The Midway collection from October Afternoon, is perfect for Fair photos and the collection also includes fun Tin Pins (Flair Buttons) that coordinate with the line. I wanted to incorporate several of the Flair Buttons to add a three dimensional look to my layout, without adding a lot of bulk. I used the Flair Buttons in my design, by creating a visual triangle and by using one Flair Button as the center of my circle embellishment and one in the banner below my photo. This visual triangle helps to guide your eye from the top of my layout, to the journaling, and then to the title of the page.
