I can "DOODLE" that!

Today's quick and easy tip is to doodle...  Isn't that fun to say. Doodle. Say it with me... Doodle. 
It makes me smile and so do these layouts the girls have come up with.

You will NEVER guess it by these layouts, but the girls claimed to have had
a hard time with these.  Phffft...  They seriously could do good work with their eyes closed.

Tip : The 6x6 paper pads are perfect to keep for making embelishments for your page like I have done with my banners. Firstly you don't have to cut into lots of 12x12 papers if you want various patterns and secondly the pattern is on a smaller scale so it looks better for smaller cut outs. The fun thing about doodling is that is does not need to be perfect so don't be afraid to just put your pen down and doodle! the fun thing about doodling.

When you're creating a layout for a fun event try adding a little doodling to your layout. It gives the viewer the impression that not only the photo of the event was fun but creating the layout was just as fun! Trace around the page in a carefree manner and frame elements to make them stand out! You'll have fun doing it and your page will reflect fun!

Designer Tip: In my layout above, I've added a layer to the design by simply adding a line in between the cardstock and doodle some scallop edges to it. To make doodling easier, I've masked some leaves on the layout and use a black pen to outline them. I've also used a white gel pen to draw some simple details on the leaves.
