Time for a Learner's Permit!

Today I am sharing a layout that celebrates the day my daughter got her learner's permit!

Teaching my daughter to drive was a little stressful and a lot of fun...or maybe it was a little fun and a lot of stress?!  Either way, I took the time to snap some photos along the way.  I took pictures of everything - from the ticket she pulled at the DMV to the vision test to the moment she finally got behind the wheel!  When I was ready to scrap it I was so excited to find that Want2Scrap had the perfect 12x12 Overlay!

I started by trimming the overlay to an 11.75" square and centering it on some green paper/cardstock.

One of my favorite things about using Overlays from Want2Scrap is that they come with built in title areas.  The laser cut area for this overlay is in the bottom right corner.  Don't you just love the car key?
Strips of washi tape embellished with more of the Sleek Strip Purple Rhinestones are a simple and pretty accent I used all across the layout.
The overlays come with white backing paper that create a frame inside of each opening.  I actually used the white edge to do some simple journaling.  (She was fearless, but mom was a little nervous!)
Overlays provide a clean background that make it easy to incorporate lots of fun embellishments:  washi tape, stickers and custom labels!  Here are close ups on the last few openings...

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
