Here is my framed layout that I created using my D.T. Templates.  As always I love being able to see what my page is going to look like before I ever cut into any of my paper or begin to crop any of my photos.  The options are endless with the unlimited amount of creative layouts you can create using your Kiwi Lane Designer Templates.



Happy Trails: 2A, 2B    Tiny Accents: 5T    Rings: 1, 4    Tiny Wacky: 2T

Tags: 1    Tiny Tags: 1T, 3T, 4T    Paradise: 4

Photo Set  & Photo Mat Set



So I decided in my mind that I wanted to create a Pizza for this page since it was all about my son making Pizza!  I pulled out my Rings #4 Template and began to work off of that.  From there I looked for something that would work for the Cheese.  I ended up using Tiny Wacky #2T.  (repeated the shape in a circle when I traced it onto my paper to create the longer circular shape.  Lastly b/c we are a Pepperoni Style family I grabbed my Rings #4 Template to trace the inner circle a few times to create Pepperoni’s.

DSC_3747Here is my completed 2-Page layout.  I used Simple Stories 24/Seven Paper Collection Kit. What a great memory of a great day I spent with my son at Louie’s Pizza.  It’s amazing how you can really go from a framed layout to a completed layout so quickly and easily.
