Be the Best {version of} Me

Hi everyone.  I was honored when Nicole invited me to join her Just Nick design team.  I've used her files previously and guested for her recently, which you can see HERE, so how could I say no?!?!

So, I'm sharing the first layout I created for her about ME...using my January Gossamer Blue kit + Just Nick designs.

As I was looking through the Just Nick store, I was inspired by all the circle cut files.  I thought, why not create a collage of some of my favorite ones that just so happen to have great sentiments I can relate to.

How to: I mixed and matched and cut them in all different sizes, laying them out in my Silhouette software first to make sure they fit on my page. Once I had the design I liked, I separated them and cut them out of different patterns. I stitched over the background paper and then put the design I planned out onto the page. I finished it off with embellishments around the stitched areas to add a sense of flow. I'm journaling some private notes about myself for my family so I left a space for that.
