There’s a story behind this photo, but I used it because I love it. And as far as the history…err scrapbooks…remember that’s all this photo will be.
(No need to remember that I was warming him up because he had the chills and then proceeded to be sick as soon as we had finished with our photo shoot. Not many kids could smile when they were coming down with the stomach bug! Haha!)
- Design Inspiration: Cari Orellana’s class Bold Backgrounds at Big Picture Classes inspired me to try creating a layout with a text background. I was excited to finally use this purple paper!
- Color Inspiration: Plenty of purple in this layout! With a bit of red and grey to accent. Swoon!
To add a bit more bling to the layout I used a few purple brads. These have been in my stash for forever! So glad to be using them up! The date was already stamped on the paper, but it was close to the date of the photo so I just left it.
I had some letter stickers that were very similar to the font on the paper. So I added a bit to the “today” that was already on the paper. The red letters didn’t cover the purple and white very well so I put them on white paper and trimmed around the words. That way they popped a bit off the page.
This sweet boy loves his Mama. And his Mama adores him!
