Good Day Sunshine

Hey guys! Happy Thursday! How are ya today? I hope you are having a beautiful day!!! Today I have a layout to share with you. This layout features some 'faux pleating.' I have created a tutorial for this as some DT work for Scrapbook Circle. So if you would like to learn how to do this 'faux pleating' technique, be sure to check out the Scrapbook Circle blog today. Here is the link for ya:


Now on to the layout. This is Carter back in 2005 enjoying the beach breeze in Gulf Shores. He was so cute! I miss him being this little! My 'faux pleating' is the orangy red that you see.

I hope you will try out the pleating!!! It is so fun and so easy! It really gives a little extra dimension and interest to your pages. It is a favorite technique of mine. There are numerous ways to paper pleat, so pull out that paper and see what you can come up with! Let me know if you do too! I'd love to check it out!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day and Happy Scrappin'!!!
Pin It!
