Just a quick layout: El Yunque

Billy and I met in Puerto Rico....we lived there for almost 5 years together....our son was born there.  Puerto Rico holds a special place in my heart.  The first place I fell in love with on my first visit there was the rain forest: El Yunque.  Such a beautiful and peaceful place.  I would love to be back there right now.

I based this layout on a sketch from Sketch Support.  Love them!  I struggled with the embellishments, but decided to go with the hearts from the sketch in my different patterned papers.  Then I dumped out all of my small embellisments from my kit and just started adding them randomly.  I did throw in a few red buttons for a little pop of color and to make my triangle for my focal point.  Not half bad.  I am working on not raking my brain forever and stressing.  Instead I am trying to just go for it.  Look at how mellow I am becoming!

We fell in love with PR last summer - spent 2 weeks going all over the island.
