A great photograph makes for a great page, don't you think? Regardless of what you add to it... but then, adding beautiful things only makes it that much better! Remember that my pages are only 6" x 6", and I'm featuring my favorite black and white photos. This page highlights my 3rd son, Maddox, when he was only 2 weeks old. I absolutely love this photo of him looking up at me, brows furrowed in wonderment, while laying in my lap. I am a new fan of blues and browns, and since his hair and eyes are brown, those seemed like logical colors for my little boy. I started with a piece of textured Close to Cocoa, and layered some Bashful Blue from the Cutie Pie DSP on top of it. The sentiments came from Sweet Thing and I layered them using Chocolate Chip, Brilliant Blue, and Whisper White. The bottom right-hand corner has the Scallop punch, then the 1-3/8", 1-1/4", and 1" Circle punches. The date is written on a Word Window punch. I also used the Three For You punch for all the small flowers, and attached Silver brads to the centers. Here's a closer look at the top left-hand corner:
Obviously I used my Stampin' Write Markers to color this stamp (and left off the star). A nice, rich, length of Chocolate Chip Wide Grosgrain finishes off the page. So quick, so easy, and SO MUCH FUN!!
Have a great weekend, y'all!
