Bright Vibrant Lovely Layout

As some of you may or may not know, my home state is Washington State - in specific the Puget Sound Area, and I am a true Pacific Northwest girl at heart.  With that comes a great love for the outdoors in all weather types and a love for Pike Place Market.  I have so many fond memories of the Pike Place Market, and it was definitely one of the places I visited frequently before my move.  There are many things that I love about the market, but mostly the lively atmosphere and street vendors - it's just my kind of place.  And here is my finished project.

As you may be able to figure out, this was also done using a sketch.  The sketch I used comes from Nuts About Sketches and can be found in this post.

A while back, I ran across someone in the blogger world who matted everything with black.  It looked so good, I decided that I should try it out, and I have been loving it.  The matting in black adds just a little something extra that makes everything pop.  In my experimentation, I have found that it is not always the case, but in general, you can't go wrong with matting in black.  Also, on this layout, I used my iTop brad maker (which I love by the way) to create perfectly matched brads.  Here are some closeups of the details.  My title was cut using my Cricut and SCAL and the font is Markus Cow - you can find this font and a ton of other awesome scrapbooking fonts here.  I cut the same title out 4 times and then layered them together to create my own dimensional like thickers.

 The little flower with the gem, that came from a flower swap that I did a while back at Mini Album Scraps. 
I love the way that this layout came out.  The bright vibrant colors and fun patterns really do highlight the bright and vibrant feel of Pike Place even on a cloudy day.  I hope you enjoyed and feel inspired to create.  Enjoy!

Supplies:  Stampin' Up! Everyday Enchantment DSP (Pattern Paper); Bazzill Basics, Stampin' Up! (Cardstock);  Flowers, Floral Border (Prima, Mini Album Scraps Swap); Brads (Imaginesence)
