When I saw the colors for this week, I knew I wanted to do a layout with minimal additions. I went with a plain grey background, no misting or stamping, a couple of small photos and just a few embellishments. I am trying to play around with using empty space as a design feature. In doing this, you need to pick elements that carry the meaning you are trying to get across. Circle were one of the evidence choices and one that I picked because they represent fun and carefree. I also used the hearts because, well, I love this man and the time I get to spend with him. The lace was chosen to ground the photos and title as well as add some romance. The gems help to reinforce the romantic theme. I did my journaling around the doodled circles.
The layout is telling the story of an unexpected afternoon together that ended up being a wonderful date. We did some errands and ended up at a nice, small, shopping center where we tried a new restaurant and had the best burgers ever! It is a gorgeous center with a beautiful courtyard, which I stopped to take a photo of. We will be sure to go back often!
