The colours of this spread make me so, so, so so so, so happy. It was a happy accident that they all flowed together - with the exception of the card that's behind the "today" cut out - I dug through my Studio Calico stash to find that one.
I also love to try new things with photos, especially to make them stand out amongst the rest. The 3x8 picture of Sophie for example - I love it, like, Rachel Zoe die for it. Originally, I was going to just make it as a 3x4 but when I went to crop it in Photoshop, I realized that it would be perfect for a 3x8 - which is how I printed it out and then just cut it in half with my paper trimmer.
All the cards and embellishments are from the new Heidi Swapp/Becky Higgins Project Life stuff. The gold foil kit is so amazing I had to buy two sets. The "she who is brave is free" is a photo I saw on Pinterest, but I'm not sure who the original source is/who the credit should go to.
