Remember that cute kiddo from my last post? Here he is again, in another layout for Scrappy Chic:
I took tons of photos of Avery back in December (2009 this time -- last layout's photo was from '08)-- the lighting was perfect, he was paying no attention to the camera, and he just looked so gosh-darn serious. Couldn't resist. This one is one of my faves.
I'm generally against foofy cutting techniques on photos -- too many bad memories of the "ooh, let's cut this picture into a heart!" trend in the early days of scrapbooking's popularity. Well, rules are made to be broken. I think the kid looks swell all on his own. :)
Lots of Studio Calico here -- all from the Documentary line, pretty much. Here's a close-up of that very manly ruffle under the title:
It might look fancy, but it's just a slice of a paper bag, pinked and pleated and inked a little.
Other stuff: American Crafts jewel brads, Creative Imaginations corrugated cs.
We just saw Avery again yesterday, and I got lots more cute pictures - hooray! Time to put in a photo order, for sure!
Happy Canada Day to my friends to the north :) Have a lovely day.
