When the "Hello Beuatiful!" kit arrived in my crafty, eager hands I couldn't wait to get to work.  What I did notice was on the 12x12 pattern papers the strip along the bottom has the name of the paper as well as a little pattern.  I knew INSTANTLY I wanted to cut them all up and use them in my pocket page notebook.

I don't know about you but I have a whole drawer almost full of photos.  Some are old and from my own childhood, some I printed myself at home and never used or doubled up, and some are from when I used to use my instax camera all the time.  One thing I'm TRYING really hard to do is to grab a photo from the drawer instead of printing new ones all the time.  This photo of my little "Bowbie" [nickname], has always been a favourite of mine and I knew it would suit the papers from the kit perfectly.

On the opposite side I wanted to keep it rather simple to not take away from the photo and the pattern papers.  This is where the die-cut words and ephemera comes into play, and, can I just add, they are absolutely amazing quality.  I added, took away, added and took away.  Then this was the final result.

I hope that you've enjoyed my first creation using and showcasing the "Hello Beautiful!" kit.
