Love you to the stars and back....

I absolutely love my family and this layout shows just that.  A great picture of the five of us down in the Florida Key's on vacation in March.  The Dear Lizzy products were perfect for this layout.  I used this lovely background paper from the Heyday Collection by Studio Calico that has beachy journaling all across the background, very subtle and just perfect.  The die cuts from the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection, just love these.  The matching sentiment on the falling star paper worked so well with my color scheme for this layout too.

Here's a full show of the layout. 

These star brads are so fun and versatile you can add them to anything and I love that.  I backed the die cut with washi tape from the Studio Calico Front Row Scrapbook Kit.  I tied twine around my page twice for a little added texture and finished it off with a little bow.

For these stars, I created a falling star effect by letting twine fall loosely down the side of the page.  I used my watercolor crayons to create a yellow background for my wood veneer stars to give a glowing look.  I also used a strip of the lovely American Crafts Silver glitter tape for a little extra sparkle.

While I put this layout together I still feel like it's missing something.  I figured, I'll put it up and see if any of you have an idea of what I should add or if it's good the way it is.  Thanks for following along as always!
