Photos of three of my dgc...Helen Grace, Allen, and Jacob. Photo taken at a local park earlier this year. I used Bella Blvd papers for this layout. I really love that plaid. I'd used half a sheet before when I did the "slide" layout...and it was perfect for this layout...so none wasted! LOL! The circles were cut from the back of one of the papers. The tag is cut from the solid orange paper with a Spellbinders die. Then I rubbed a little ink over the die shape to make the raised dots show up a little. The ribbon in the tag is actually ORANGE...but for some reason it would only photograph as almost red. Go figure! The butterfly is a clip art piece I found on my computer...no idea where I found it. I printed the butterfly on photo paper which give him a glossy look, then I lightly hightlighted sections of the butterfly with a little stickles. The scalloped edges are punched with a MS border punch. The "hanging out together" title was printed on the computer then I doodled a little plaid background on it. I also added a few random pieces of bling...and a little white doodling to finish it off. Journaling is tucked behind the photo and reads:
It was a beautiful spring day at the park in Milton. You three climbed on every slide, took a ride in every swing, climbed all the monkey bars, and even took a walk in the cold creek. We all watched as you jumped from one area to another – full of energy and laughing constantly. After a couple of hours of play, you three sat down for a quiet moment by the edge of the creek and watched the ducks swim by. A great day…a special memory of fun times together.
