Wonderful Sweet

This collection from Simple Stories has to be one of my favorites at the moment. And the best part of that collection is the most awesome sticker sheet, chock full of fun and colorful designs. It's like having a big bag of embellishments perfectly matched to the papers. I love the casualness of their pieced and stitched look, ideally suited for summer activities both indoors and out.

For the page below, I utilized my favorite technique of backing the stickers with chipboard and/or pop-dotting them off the page. It brought to life my photos of a day outdoors, canoeing through the swamps near Manchac, Louisiana. We may not have had balloons floating above our heads, kites skirting the clouds, or pinwheels poking out our canoes, but adding these whimsical designs to my page served to accentuate the carefree day that we had experienced. And it WAS a wonderful sweet happy perfect day!
(This page was mostly created from items from Scraptastic's Summer Picnic kit. Additional supplies: corrugated cardstock, red cardstock, pop-dots, kraft baggie, and title block.)

I know I told you that I love this already but I hadn't mentioned how cool that curled up edge is. Very nice extra touch for this layout.
