Template Heaven 004

I used to be so bad at making layouts with more then one photo and these days it seems that it is all I'm making, and even when I only use one photo I still manage to make it look like more. It's funny to look at how my style has changed since I began my scrapping adventure. In the beginning I only used one photo and filled the page with it, these days I'm using lots of photos and keeping them small. I think the real change came after I got layouts printed for the first time and I realized that even if I made the photos smaller, they would still be pretty big - oh and journaling doesn't need to be more then a size 14 at the most, even if it looks pretty small on your screen, it is still very readable.

Another thing that helped me think about my style, is working with templates and speaking of which here's your freebie template this week.

The template this week I made back in March after spending a great day at the beach playing and taking too many photos that I desperately wanted to scrap. I used Mandy by Meryl Bartho, Mandy Page AOP by Meryl Bartho, Kaybutler Page Kit by Meryl Bartho, Stitched With Love Basics by Meryl Bartho & Hang The Alpha - Custom Chipboard by Meryl Bartho

For the second layout I used Brushed On Watercolour by Lauren Bavin, not only for blending the photo but also to blend two backgrounds together. The white one seemed too plain and the purple too much, but the combination of them is just right!
The white paper is from Lovee Grungee Back Pack by Marcee Duggar, there's a word art from Wordee Deluxe Word Art Set 4 by Marcee Duggar and the rest is from Passionfruit Purple Page Kit by Suzanne C Walker

Which just leaves the freebie preview. I hope you'll find it useful
