  1. Ooh! I love this--Such a pretty color with all those lovely tone on tone prints that really look great on the kraft background. I also love how turning your photo to black and white makes it pop and fit in with the ombre color scheme.

  2. This is such a great effect! I love aqua and kraft together and I'm a big fan of linear designs so it ticks all my boxes.

  3. Ohhh I LOVE your layout!! So so FUN and creative! :) And thanks so much for the little shout out! Happy we could spark something in you! :)

    Love from the NJ Shore!
