Hey everyone!!!  It's my first layout and blog post for 2018 for JustNick!  I swear, she's going to have to kick me to the curb to get me to leave!  Where I live, it's cold, the wind hurts my face, and there is slush and snow everywhere, so I decided I needed to channel a little sunshine into my page!

I used the Loads of Love cut file, and I cut it out of a pinky-peach ombre paper.  I was originally going to cut it out of white cardstock, but decided to use up some of the neglected  solid papers in my stash.  At this point I had no clue where I was going with it, only that I knew I wanted to put a picture in the largest O.  I used a SnapChat pic of my daughter and I, since I needed a small one, and the quality of the photo wasn't the greatest, so it was better to keep it small.  I then chose various fun patterned papers from my paper scraps stash.  I always love stash busting with Nicole's cut files!

I wasn't sure what background paper to use, but in the end I couldn't resist using the bright and friendly clouds!  My daughter also helped influence my background paper choice.  I only did a minimal amount of embellishing, since the page was already brimming with fun!  I am so happy with how seriously cute this page turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have an awesome day!
