Simple Double Page Layout

Here is a layout I put together quickly to showcase the action shots of my son's 'trampoline dodgeball' birthday party. The lighting was odd and I was having issues with my camera settings so none of my photos turned out great. I decided to block mount them to give the photos more impact and to show the action from the party. I plan to add my journaling in a straight line under the photos.

The striped paper and decorative circle stickers are from Basic Grey, but the background and accent paper are Creative Memories. The colors paired together perfectly and I love how the circles mimic the dodgeballs. I cut the Sky Zone title on my Silhouette using the Star Wars font - it was similar to the actual logo and worked well for my title. Thanks for stopping by!

ETA:  I love posting my layouts here because I get to view them in a different manner.  After looking at this layout agian it now looks unbalanced to me - too much weight on the right hand side.  I'm thinking of tearing off the bottom left corner and replacing it with a bit of the striped paper, but I'm not sure yet.  I think I will add my journaling first and see how it looks.  Hmmm.....need to think about this more....

It may seem simple to you, but it is very pretty. Very well done!

I think the block mounting on this layout looks awesome! Ties it all together very nicely :)
and I think adding the journaling in a straight line under the photo's will be perfect! gREAT JOB!

I'm reading old blog posts... but... since I can't see the finished product, and in case you haven't finished this yet (if you're anything like me, that's a distinct possibility!) one way to offset the imbalance, put all the journaling on the first page centered under the photos, that should balance with the weight on the right. Just an idea!
