Always Be The Best You Layout | My Mind's Eye

I was up on the My Mind's Eye blog this week with my October Guest Designer posts! Today I am sharing my second of the four layouts I created using their new Cut and Paste collection.

INSPIRATION | My Minds' Eye Journaling Card

This layout, Always Be the Best You, all started with the "Be" journaling card. I knew it would be the perfect title for this photo of my niece. The layout came together so easily using the Cut and Paste Adorbs collection! Even though my niece is wearing purple I felt like the blues and pinks in this collection coordinated well and helped to keep the focus on her!

I also added to the title with a digital cut file I created in Adobe Illustrator using my own handwriting. Once I cut it out with my Silhouette, I wrote over it using a white gel pen to help it stand out a little more.
