Here we are at the end of July, and it is time for my monthly reveal at Scrapmatts Australian Chipboard. It's almost time for school to start back for us, and I can't believe that my son Draven is going to be a Senior this year!! My sister, Tammy, owns a portrait studio All About Smiles Photography, and she and my son have been going to various places and doing his Senior photos. I have only got to see a sneak of a few that she has done, and most of them have her watermark through them, until she gives me the final copy, but I did manage to sneak one out that didn't have the watermark-lol!
The Design Team was asked to do a layout using one or some of the "trendy" items in the scrapbook world, so this is my layout, using my son's photo, and some of those trendy chevrons.
I had some Bo Bunny Cambridge papers that I had hoarded up a while back, and they were perfect for Draven's photo, so I petted them, closed my eyes and started cutting and distressing. I did lots of texture work, paper tearing, rolling, and inking on this one.
I love this layout!! I have decided that I am going to take this one, and some of the others I plan to scrap from the photo shoot, and put them in a keepsake box and give them to him when he graduates. That is, if I can bear to part with them ;)
Ahuge thank you to all of you who stop by and leave me such sweet comments~they are music to my soul~ Hugs, Renea
