So as alot you that follow my blog, have come to see that most of my layouts showcase my daughter...well I thought that this weekend, I would take some time to create a layout that showcased my son and I using a photo I took of us recently. The look on his face was perfect for this shot of a sweet kiss on his cheek.
This little boy has my heart, a sweet little guy that gently squeezes me when he hugs me, the one that tells people in public "This is MY mommy", the one that will randomly hold my hand, the one that tells me randomly several times thru out the day ..."Mommy I wuv you.", the one who always knows when even the slightest thing is wrong with me... This little guy has heart...and I am thankful to have had him and to know that he will forever be mine.
So I thought the least I could do, was make a memory for him in a layout so he knows..he's mommy's boy forever.
The papers featured are Prima "Moulin Rouge",
I was aiming for more vintage colors so these papers were perfect. I kept my choice of papers simple though, using a patterned paper as my 2 background papers, but my main background paper was just a cream cardstock which I altered with a mask and some Glimmer Mists.
I wanted to create my own "die cut" paper so I used the Fiskars "Effervecence" border punch all the way around the paper. Loved the end result.
I needed perfect coordinating blooms for this color scheme, which was quite tricky, being I only had one blue flower left, so I made my own matching blooms(the paper ones that is)! To find my tutorial on how to make this flowers, click HERE. I simply used a scalloped circle and medium 6-petal flower punch.
