I am so far behind the eight ball at the moment :( I have so much catching up to do. This layout was from the Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge #31 at the beginning of the month. :/
Here is Denise van Deventer's lovely sketch.
Here is my layout for this challenge.
I mirrored the sketch because of the way that Spence was looking.
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
Spencer you are such a serious little boy and you watches everything and don't miss a trick but you do not smile easily. You don't cry or moan easily either. You just sit and watch, you are not jealous of Paige - you just watch and wait your turn and when I talk to you or play with you the sweetest smile spreads across your face lighting up your eyes and if I play 'This little piggy' with you I can usually get you to giggle. You are so like your dad as a baby it is scary and I see it in so many ways. If you grows up to be just like him you will be a very special person too. So Spence, laugh often it really is good for your soul. There is nothing wrong with just watching and taking it all in , you are learning all the time and knowledge is power. Play nice and share your toys. Play outside as much as you can it will fuel your imagination and if you have imagination there is nothing that you can't do. Don't be afraid to take time out just for you, it is also good for your soul it also teaches you that only you can make you happy. Say I love you often and give and take hugs freely. There are amazing opportunities for you out there and ALWAYS know that I love you.
Here are some close ups.
I used beige cardstock and layered it onto the faded red card stock and the strips and bits of paper used for layer are all from Maja Design (can you tell I am besotted with this range of papers)? The splats were made with a black distress stain and the stars are made of black felt.
I have also tucked in some film strip and some mesh tape and other bits and pieces that fit with the colours and theme of my layout.
I tucked some cotton in here and there too and the tabs on the photo are material tape and brads. The title is some old stickers that I had.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look :) and for taking the time to leave me a comment I really love to read them all.
