Friendly Forest: Family Layout with Melinda

Happy Thursday and welcome to the Doodlebug blog. It's Melinda with you today and I'm sharing my 'Friendly Forest' layout which just happens to have it's very own embellishment forest!


I set out to create a relatively clean and simple layout as I wanted the focus to be on the photo and the journaling. It was kind of a letter to my brother with a photo of his beautiful little family so I didn't want to go over the top with papers and embellishments as he isn't that way inclined.


But as you can see... I went a little crazy with my forest because once I started sticking those little trees and critters down I just couldn't help myself and completely changed my original plan and made a forest instead of a small cluster.


TIP: Because I wanted to layer my embellishments with foam pop dots I used baby powder to remove the existing sticky adhesive from the pieces before attaching the new foam dots. It works like a charm and makes our layout smell like it's just had a bath.
