AAG August 15th challenge...white space!

Time for the mid-month challenge at About A Girl!  This challenge is all about leaving white space on your layouts.  Lucky for me, I recently discovered that I could print my instagram photos in 4x4 through the Walgreens app on my phone, so I am stocked with little square photos with fun edits that are perfect for these type of layouts! Here is what I came up with.

I picked a sketch from the Scrap Friends sketch archive and reached for my trusty Heidi Swapp mists.

These Heidi Swapp mists get a whole lotta play in my scrappy rotation lately.  The colors are fun, bright, mixable, and versatile. They might just be my most frequently used product this summer.  And the coordinating products I get in my Citrus Twist kits never disappoint.  Always plenty to mix and match from past months too!  Here are a couple of close-ups.  Scroll to the bottom for a list of materials.  Thanks for stopping by - your comments mean a lot! xoxo
