Last ScrapFIT Reveal: It's the Simple Things

The Workout:
Here are the guidelines for January's second workout on ScrapFIT.

Workout #60- It’s The Simple Things
Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that mean the most!  Show us what simple little thing means so very much to you!  Is it a picture your child drew, a family heirloom,  a special recipe or a book? We are dying to know! Join us for this "simple" workout by linking your creation to Mr. Linky at the bottom of today's post by January 31st.  

My Reveal:
I wanted to show that taking time out of the day to stop and spend time with a loved one was one of life's simple pleasures.

Workout #60 - It's the Simple Things
Sometimes you have the photos that match the topic, but this time I had to recreate the moment. Kevin and I took these photos on the front porch using a ladder and the camera's self timer. 

The Details:
Since this was about the simple things in life, I decided to also keep the page relatively clean and simple. This was difficult for me and I had to keep stopping myself from adding more elements and using more colors and patterns. I started by using white as the background and not misting that blank canvas or adding larger patterned paper pieces.
Title Block
I  used pieces from Pebbles' Happy Go Lucky collection, so everything would look cohesive. For the title, I chose a sticker from the collection for a simpler look, instead of having a long multicolored title made from alphabet stickers that I would normally be inclined to do. 
Flower embellishments

I used some flowers from the collection along with some rhinestones that I placed throughout the layout. 

Bird embellishments
It still looked a little barren to me at this point, so I cut out some birds from the patterned papers and place them in three different places along with the rhinestones.

 I stitched a large heart to anchor all the elements together so it didn't look like squares floating in space.

The Prize:
Hope you enjoyed my simple little layout. If you have something you want to document, link your creation to this post on ScrapFIT by January 31st, and you just might win the following collection from this month's sponsor, Boys Rule Scrapbook
