Alphabet Challenge: Alphas as Shapes by Stephanie Buice

Hi everyone! Stephanie here today to share my Alphabet challenge layout with you.
Alphas are one of the most basic supplies yet there are so many options to choose from, especially here at Doodlebug. Have you seen the new Skinny font yet? It is my favorite!
But for this layout I wanted to dig deep into my stash and find some of the ones that I haven't used in a while and show them some love.

I also wanted to find a new way to use them instead of just in my title so I decided to try and make a pattern with them. I went through all of my sets and found all the V's and used them in an arrow type design.

Since I wanted to keep my layout in the black and white range with a pop of pink I stuck to all black V letters. I added my design mostly at the top and bottom of my photos.

I used a few different fonts to make my title, "Of all the things, the greatest is Love." This layout of my sister and her little family is one of my favorites, they really are full of love.

I finished my layout by adding in a few more of the V's at the top and bottom of the title and then sewed a straight line down each of them. 
This is a simple layout that any skill level could tackle, and if you're like me you have tons of unused alphas sheets hanging around.
I hope you'll break them out and try coming up with different ways to use them.
Have a great day!
