The scrapbook layout I’m sharing today features ‘Free to Be Me’ paper from Close to My Heart. Actually, all of the supplies are from Close to My Heart!

Design Tip: Working with bright colours.

This layout was designed to be quick and easy with some great details and design. When working with photos that have bright colours, like the bright orange t-shirt, you have a couple of options.

  1. Create a layout with bright papers to match the tone of your photos.
  2. Alter the photos to mute the colours or convert them black and white.

For this layout I felt that the fun hair cut theme would be better with bright paper and this specialty pack is bright with fun designs.
