delight in life

Hello friends. Happy Super Bowl day for those that follow the sport! I am born and raised in New England, so fingers crossed for the Patriots here.
I am sharing a layout I created for this weeks word prompt on the forum. I chose to use the word "delight" , as we all know how delightful winter weather can look at times! Being new to the winter weather again, I have slim pickings for winter photos, and chose to document a set of photos from a recent trip to SeaWorld. I used a great mix of product for this layout. I LOVE mixing and matching separate paper lines.
I used a mix of Jiliibean soup, soup staples paper and American Craft Seredipity paper as my base. I loved how the were both neutral papers in slightly different tones. I wanted to keep the vibrant blues in my photos as the focal point, choosing to use more muted blues in my embellishments.
I played with a bit more seredipity paper, and old book page from my stash, and a Jillibean soup tag.

I created a fun embellishment cluster with a surrounding title using some fancy pants letters. I am obsessed with tiny letter stickers , and fancy pants are my current go to manufacturer for letters. They have so many colors released with each line, it is worth stocking up the sticker sheets alone!
 I also LOVE natural elements on my layouts through cork or wood embellishments. I rounded off my layout with some cork arrow stickers from Crate paper. T.hey have so many cute shapes in that cork set.

Thanks so much for popping in between your possibly busy day. I hope I inspired you to create something fun, and we would LOVE to see your take on the challenge in the forum this week!
