Breakfast for Dinner | October Afternoon Guest Designer

I'm so excited to be featured on the October Afternoon blog today.   I thought I'd share a layout I made that embraces my love for patterns using the Saturday Mornings collection.

So who's with me and agrees that breakfast for dinner is one of the most fun dinners to have, especially for the kiddos?!?! We don't do it very often but when we do, my girls get a kick out of it every. single. time. And it's even better when someone else is cooking!

As you may or may not know, I am obsessed with patterns. I love to mix and match them to create visual backgrounds and designs to help tell the story of my photos. Today is no exception.

Visit my Instagram (@heatherleopard) today to see a Flipogram of how this layout came together.

Breakfast for Dinner Triangle Octagons by Heather Leopard OA

This look can be easily achieved with a triangle punch or by hand cutting the triangles. Just make sure to include 6 even sides so they line up properly. BUT, if you have a Silhouette, you are in luck.  I created a cut file. If you want to re-create this layout for yourself, you can DOWNLOAD THE FREE CUT FILE.

To create this layout, I cut each of the triangles and octagons and then pieced them together.  I chose to leave some of the octagons empty so I could add octagon shaped photos in those spots.

Breakfast for Dinner Title by Heather Leopard OA

For the title I played with the font colors so that it could read at least 3 different ways - "Breakfast for dinner" 'cause that's what it was, "Break for dinner" 'cause I was catching a break by not having to cook dinner and "Fast dinner" 'cause it came out speedy quick.

Many thanks again to October Afternoon for having me guest today. Stop by next Friday to see my process for creating backgrounds.
