I Had a Hard time...

Deciding if I should go monochromatic or add color with these pics! The colors are washed out (they are 14 years old) but I love them. Eric was swinging him into the flag and he was giggling uncontrollably! Can you believe he was only 8 months in these pics?!

The paper line "Twig" by Little Yellow Bicycle just begged to be used :) The colors matched perfectly and didn't compete so much with the photos.

I wanted to use a K&Co. burlap flower but it was too big. Hmmm... Eureka! I pulled out the Sizzix Bigshot and a flower die and recut it, added the others on top, a bit of twine and a pearl.  The white flower behind it all is the one that came in the die package, I think it was to show the actual size. Love it!

Used the brackets to draw attention to his cute giggling face.

Thanks for stopping by :}

This is just adorable! I love it! What a great way to highlight your son's face! I wouldn't have ever thought of that.

Wow! I love this one. I really like how you used the blue (ribbon) border as part of the flower too...cute! And congratulations on the new post about your LOs being chosen...again!! Man, I'm serious about getting your autograph ;)
