Point and Shoot!

My brother took this adorable photo of my nephew recently.  It’s so fun that I couldn’t resist scrapping it.  :)  I used one of my favorite collections from Echo Park, as well as some tags and a super fun glassine circus-star embossed envelope from the Curtsey Boutique.




There aren’t a lot of specific techniques here, I just added layer upon layer and found the look I wanted.  The Curtsey Boutique items are the best for this kind of layering!  At the end of the project, I added a bit of washi tape to add some contrast and bring the whole page together.

Thanks for looking!

Scooter Saturday

**I have been having some trouble adjusting to a new monitor and making my layout photos look right when editing the colors.  I’m working on fixing some of them, but I appreciate your patience with my wonky photos.**

This layout features one of my favorite photos of my kids.  Probably ever.  We had just returned home from buying them new scooters.  When I saw this photo, my first thought was “They are city kids now!”  And they are.  Moving from a town of 3,000 to a city of 2 million is a huge adjustment. They are doing great!




I tried to make this layout work with the graffiti in the photo by using masks and mists, as well as some bold black. 

Thanks for taking a peek!
