Layout Share: Truckin' To Texas

For the month of January, Jill over at Memorable Seasons let each of the Design Team pick out their papers for the design team kit. I mixed and matched papers from various manufacturers. Several of them came from the Bo Bunny Olivia collection, so Jill sent the embellishments that coordinate with those papers. I also used papers from My Mind's Eye, Prima, Scrap w/in Reach, Basic Grey and KI Memories.

The papers I picked out are on the back row and the ones Jill added are in the front:
Then she added some awesome embellishments to it to round out the grouping.

And here's the first project I created with this kit:

 For this layout, I had too many photos I wanted to include (hardly shocking, I know), so I used the kraft cards to create a flap under each photo for more photos and the journaling. This way I was able to include photos that weren't so good (only had my cell phone with me).
I added some scalloped punched red paper to parts of the layout to pull the colors together and used those little mini alpha letters like they were going out of style. :)
The main flowers that have brads in them are from the sticker sheet...I either altered them with glossy accents to give them more dimension or I cut them out differently so I could omit colors I didn't want to include.
  The title on this layout is highlighted with glossy accents to help it stand out more against the background.
