Back to the bright colours today with a layout showing a family photo taken on Robert's 16th Birthday. Robert is growing like wildfire at the moment and has overtaken me and is about the same height as Nigel now. Not that the photo shows this. Yes he looks taller than me but the path slopes down and I am in the ditch so I look like a midget next to him. Nigel is standing on the higher piece of path. All is explained on the hidden journaling tag.
I scrap lifted the layout from Shimelles version here. I used an assortment of October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket and Kraft paper with a Websters Pages journaling card stuck onto a plain white envelope. You can see how I made the handcrafted button here.
I always find great inspiration from a sketch and invariably they turn out quite different from the original. I don't have as many clusters of embellishments as Shimelle does but added an extra date card, tag and envelope.
