Versatility

When I first got the December WIP kit in the mail, I was immediately drawn to the bold patterns and color palette. I love the aqua dots and number paper since they naturally fall in line with my more linear style. So putting together this Disney page came pretty easily. While you may not immediately think "Disney" when looking at the old-fashioned theme of this kit, I'll show you the elements I took from it to fit my theme. 

The first thing that struck me was the color theme - red/yellow/black. This went perfectly with the pictures that I had of my son meeting Mickey for the first time. I used the bolder paper patterns, some flags, a journaling spot and sticker frame to support my theme.

To add to the whimsical feel, I added loops of twine and a sweet banner at the top. This divided the page and brought attention to the focal point photo.

I printed two of the smaller photos on white photo paper and left a wide bottom margin to make them look like Polaroids. I like how it makes the photos stand out and gives the eye a place to rest on this busy page.

When I look at the December kit I see Disney, Christmas, and fancy parties (as you can tell from my gallery). It what I loved most about it - VERSATILITY!
