Studio J Layout: "He is my JOY"

This is the last of the five Studio J layouts I made a couple of weeks ago as a Convention assignment.  I so enjoyed this online class that Close To My Heart gave all Convention attendees for FREE!  I saved this one for last because last is the best of all the game.  I'm not sure if this layout is the best, but this guy is the best.  He truly is the most important thing in my life.  I think the best gift that you can give your children is to always put your spouse first. When they see this they will do the same in their own families.  Oh, how I love this man...and every time I see him with the grandkids I love him even more.

Studio J (Close To My Heart's perfect answer to gorgeous digital scrapbooking....faster, simpler, easier) is such a great way to preserve your memories and feelings for future generations at a great price and oh-so-easy.  To learn more about Studio J, click here.

I pretty much followed the instructions from Close To My Heart for this layout to the T.  It was exactly what I wanted for my photos without changing up a color, accent, or anything else. How cool is that?  Even cooler is that I made this layout in about 15 minutes.  Easy, peasy, lemon squeasy! Here are the techniques I used on this layout:
  • making a pleated ribbon out of ribbon tabs (see grey ribbon on right page)
  • rotating a page
  • cropping MyStickease images
  • camouflaging with a text box
  • changing the color intensity of a B&T (patterned paper) design
Here are close-ups of each page. Feel free to click on either page to see it larger and in more detail, as well as the full layout at the top of the post.

Have a great day! I invite you to give Studio J a try! If you are from the U.S. or Canada, you probably have some awesome patriotic photos to scrap after Independence Day and Canada Day. I suggest you try one of the following kits to complement your red, white and blue:  Blue Ribbon, Fanfare, Independence Day, Route 66, Superhero and/or Zippidee.  Enjoy!

This is a beautiful tribute layout to Dan. What a great guy you have in your life! I, too, did Jerry in this layout, and I think it was the only one that I didn't change up. I am looking forward to seeing all of these layouts in person!
