Simply Scraplifted

The guest blogger on Yvonne's blog, Do More With Less is the fabulous Lynnda!  Lynnda's challenging everyone to keep it minimal, less is more.   Well, I've been meaning to play along with Yvonne's guests for some time and Lynnda's layout for the challenge was so stinkin' cute so I thought I'd keep it simple and scraplift it.  Go HERE to see Lynnda's layout.  And this is my layout:
I picked out a fun base paper, misted it, added the title, and then I scraplifted the brilliant idea to use old number stickers behind the photo.  The journaling reads, "Gavin was so excited to get 2 tubes of his favorite toothpaste from the dentist.  Such simple pleasures."  Oh and I fussy cut around Gavin.  He was standing in the kitchen and the dog walked by, so I thought it best to cut out the dog's behind.  I then outlined around the picture with my black copic to make it pop which is hard to see in this picture.
There you have it, a minimal, quick and fun layout!  Thanks Yvonne and Lynnda for the great challenge!!!
