“Highlight of my Day”

Layout done: 29 January 2020

Photographs taken: 2019 and 2020

Location: Farm Rooikoppies, Kuruman District, Northern Cape, South Africa

Photographers: Hettie & Phillip Krüger (kiss photo with camera on timer)

We have this beautiful dam behind our home. Watching the sun set over the water, really is the highlight of my day…

I spelled it “highlite” because HigHligHt has three H’s and the packet of alphabet stickers only had two.

I did this layout to enter into the January 2020 Challenge on More Than Words – using sunset colors and the word “Highlight”. The sunset colors inspired me immediately to do a layout about the actual sunset!

I based the layout on Sketch 4 for 2020 of Dusty Attic’s “A Year of Sketches”. But I just couldn’t choose only four sunset photographs (we have sooooo many) – so I adjusted the layout to add six photographs.

I used paper from two Collections by Mintay Papers – the clouds from Dreamer and the soft, pastel sunset colors from Forever Young.

Wow! The paper really fit in perfectly with this project.

I used a pink doily on the background – this is what the layout looked like before I added the photographs.

Added some paper flowers from Little Birdie and fussy cut the rest of the flowers and the leaves from the Flora Book by Mintay Papers. The yellow doily represents the sun.

I used gold glitter on the chipboard curls to fit in with the gold letters of the title. I also had some pastel color confetti from a wedding we attended. I stuck them down randomly and finished it all off with some diamantés.

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoy watching the sun set over the dam in the evening…
