Rocking the #PhelpsFace -- featuring Simple Stories :)

Hi everyone! 

I wanted to share a layout I made using the "Life Documented" and "So Fancy" collections from Simple Stories :)

I made this using the latest challenge from "The Studio" which is a sketch -- and I flipped the sketch upside down to work with my photo :)







Sooooooooo -- if you don't know the story of #PhelpsFace -- you can read about it here -- being a HUGE Michael Phelps fan -- I think the stories are pretty funny -- and can't believe the media made such a big deal about his 'game face' :) 








And here is their sketch I used 




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
