My Boy

I don't get to use flowers very often, since it's just me and five boys (Eddie, Sam and the three male dogs), but I thought that the colors in this paper and the pinky color of Sam's shirt would work okay.
I used the Studio Calico "Toe Stop" add-on kit for most of the elements here.  The doily item was actually cut off of another paper in the kit.  I used a little Diamond glaze on the flowers on the doily to give them a little dimension and pop.  I really like the way this one turned out.

There were so many dimensional elements to this layout, I thought this would be a good angle to show it from as well.  :)
This in no way the best picture of me ever taken (I think we had only been awake long enough to get dressed) but I really love how happy the two of us look in this one.  I perfected taking self-pictures with a point-and-shoot so long ago (I started with film) and it sure has come in handy through the years!  :)
