Same kid, different year

Howdy, people!

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.

Thanks for the Canada Day wishes! My day was less than stellar but we're talking about YOU! ;) I love this layout. Great masculine colours, corrugated paper and a pleated paper bag. SO COOL!

LOVE it! The paper is so fantastic and gives such a great sense of movement! Love all your arrows and LOVE the wood grain letters! And the filmstrip!

(And ok, you may have talked me into Early Espresso. I mean, if it has Angela's Seal of Approval, what more do I need? ;) )
