I was so excited to receive my design goodies and the 12x12 Super pad caught my creative eye right away; so many options! I chose some black background text and a hot pink polka dot patterned paper as the foundation for this design. I had taken some great pictures with my iPhone of my daughter and her friend. Those smaller photos are a great way to get more photos on a page.

The papers in this pack are perfect for a project about two girls having fun and hanging out.   For my title, I chose the word sympatico which means: to share a mental connection or bond with someone, or to have a lot in common. These girls definately have that!

In creating the design, I made two focal points and I wanted to create a feeling of cohesion between them. To do so, I trimmed down some of the puffy borders to add pieces in both points. 

To finish things off, I used a black polka dot ribbon, pink trim, stitching and some buttons tied with twine.  My Dymo labeller is a cool way to add their names alongs side the cluster.

The purple alphas in the contemporary font are some of my favourite letters ever. Momenta includes them with a lime and pink selection in the Vibrant Alphas package.
I am thrilled to be starting this new journey with Momenta and I hope you too, will be inspired to try something new this week!
