It's In Here Somewhere

When my friend Helen posted this photo of her cute little boy Myles on facebook, it really made me smile. I thought it would make a fantastic subject for a scrapbook page. Then when I saw Vanessa's (Papermaze)  post on Scrap, Paper, Scissors last night, showing the crop kit for today I knew it would be ideal for this photo. I just needed to change the orientation of the page to accommodate it. So I set off this morning with a colour and a black and white version of Helen's photo - ready to crop!

Here is my finished layout:

The layout uses My Mind's Eye - Lavender collection - Collage and Flowery
Simple Stories - Documented - Words to Live By
Basic Grey Kissing Booth - Lip Gloss
Craft Core No. 6
Bazzill in Beach and Chili
Peach Bakers Twine
I wooden Leaf

Punches, Embossing folders, sewing machine, inks, mask and acrylic paint.
I used two different Cuttlebug alphabets for my title and added a flat backed pearl.

This is Vanessa's original of herself as a bridesmaid in the 1970's

Here is Helen's lovely photo, in B & W as well as colour - so glad she had the camera/phone handy. I think the quality is not bad considering I took it from facebook. Must remember to ask her for the original.

Looking forward to meeting this little man one day soon.

Thanks for looking
