Croptober - Day Five

Simple is good.  Simple is not spending time over-thinking things.  Simple is done.  And that's what today's layout is all about.  Simple, but with impact.

This layout comes from, of course, Pinterest, but linked from Creative Cucina's blog, a digital scrapbooker.  I mean, seriously, break this layout down and it's four photos, two large circles, the title and the journaling.  It's a paper hoarder's dream.  

I love that she used a patterned paper for the back, so often I gravitate toward cardstock.  The pattern works because she mounted her colorful, activity-filled photos on the mostly solid orange circles; they have a small monochrome pattern.  There are no embellishments, but you could certainly add them if you'd like.  Even the title, make the circles into banners, triangles or squares, you choose and go for it.  Whole layout could be done in under an hour.  30 minutes maybe.

If you feel inclined to share your work as inspiration for others, leave a link to your work in the comment section.

Go.  Create.
