Moodboard Girls | Vacation

Hi there!  I am super excited to join the awesome Moodboard Girls group!  If you haven't had a chance to check them out, it's a group of talented crafters that post projects each month, based on a new Moodboard.  You can find inspiration from each of the Designers by following the line up on Instagram, which I'll have later in the post.

Here is the Moodboard for this month!

This Moodboard has some pretty shades of Pink, and that was the first thing that stood out to me.  But once I looked at it a bit more, I decided to go in a totally different direction and take inspiration from the sea bird and sea oats.  That took my layout idea to a beach vacation themed page.

I used the Here & There collection from Crate Paper, because it's a great travel collection.  Then I cut the Outburst cut file from The Cut Shoppe from my background paper.  I used a mix of the 6x6 patterned papers to back the cut file.  I also placed my photo in one of the open spots of the cut file to keep a clean look on the layout.

For my title, I used Thickers from the Here & There collection, and placed a letter in each spot of the cut file.  Then I added embellishments next to some of the letters.  I also used a mix of embellishments in the center of the cut file to add interest and dimension.

I had so much fun being inspired by the April Moodboard, and I hope you've found some inspiration in my layout.  If you create a project based on the mood board make sure you share it on Instagram and use the hashtag #moodboardgirls, so we can leave you some love!! 

Now make sure you follow the line up, to see what everyone else created!

I love everything about all of the embellishments in this collection, so I used as many as I could over a cut file in the background!
