laying it out | trio

When I saw the beautiful parts of the Yes Please Kit from Amy Tangerine I knew I had to do a layout with some of the photos from our trip to Rome last year. There were a few shots I felt fit perfectly and that have a fun feeling to them; especially the one of the guys pretending to hold beers wile posing. The story behind that is that we have a ton of photos of them together toasting the camera. So even though they didn't have beer on hand while we visited the Colloseum, they suggested I Photoshop that in afterwards.

The Amy Tangerine Yes Please Kit is available today at AC Digitals.

After a really busy week with work travel for both of us we had a nice couple of hours on Friday night with dinner outside and watching the sun set. A glass, or two, of wine while we relaxed and talked was extra nice.

I really like the quote in this layout. It really hits home with me. I have a tendency to get hung up on not being good enough no matter what I do, and I frequently need a reminder that the person that I am can actually be good enough sometimes too.

I really stepped out of the box with this layout. If you follow my blog, you know that I like to create layouts with smaller photos, a layered look, shadows, and stuff like stitches and staples to make it realistic. The blended look doesn't come natural to me and I have to really work hard to make it feel finished.
