Fire Bug

This layout started with me wanting to use several of the American Crafts Campy Trails Decorative Tags and went from there.  I don't usually have a lot of white space on layouts so this page ended up being quite a challenge for me.  I love how it turned out but I tell you there were many times when I kept trying to add something (a brad, a stamp, another tag ...) to the upper left corner.  But I stuck with my original plan and I was able to complete it without adding anything!

Aren't those tags the cutest!  I love them!  The work perfectly with the whole collection with co-oridnating but different patterns, plus they have some with cute sayings on them!  And the twine bows add a rugged cuteness if I do say so myself.

I had more photos to go on this layout but really they were all of Steve starting a fire. I picked my favorites and then decided to put the embossed cardstock in the middle to break up the photos, to give the eyes a rest, and to give me somewhere to put my title and journalling.  I think it turned out pretty good seeing as that much white space was a real challenge for me!
