You Are 4 Layout by Zsoka Marko

Fancy Free will always have a special place in my heart because it was my first collection and I still love seeing it in use like on this new layout by design team member Zsoka Marko !

Paige has sooo many cut files that I get overwhelmed when it comes to picking out one for my next layout haha! There are so many I want to use, but I can never find enough time! Anyway... I love balloons so the Balloons cut file stood out to me. I decided to go with the gorgeous Fancy Free collection to mix things up a little!
I enlarged the cut file so that it covered most of the page, then cropped it and cut it from textured white cardstock. I backed the balloons with various patterned papers, making sure they are all colorful and happy! I then added hand stitching to them, mainly because at the time I was working on it I was lacking mojo. When I don't feel like creating, I either fussy cut or hand stitch because it's mindless work but at least I'm doing something!
Once done, I added foam adhesive to the balloons and adhered the cut file to the background paper. To make it a bit more interesting, I placed some buttons, layered stickers, die cuts, and chipboard stickers here and there.
Next, I layered some tissue paper and tags behind my photo and glued it all down. I tucked in a few embellies as well and attached a chipboard piece and a sticker to the photo. 
Here's the thing. I had (and still have) so much of the Fancy Free collection, multiples of everything, like 6 packs of embellies etc. Serious FOMO! BUT, I've never been able to put my hands on the alpha Thickers. Many items never made it to Europe. So long story short, I had to go with other Thickers. :) I found the Thickers from the Take Me Away collection quite fitting! I made sure I picked a mix of colors so the layout is more fun. I added my journaling and date and done! I hope these happy colors bring a smile on your faces today! Thanks for stopping by!
