It's Mandy here today and I have a layout to share with you that features a photo of my nearly 9 year old son. He recently purchased a new skateboard and a hat with his pocket money that he had saved up. Usually he's not that keen for me to take photos of him, but he was super happy with his new purchases, so he was willing to let me to take some photos of him showing off his new gear! Yay for me, because I got some great photos of him to scrap!
Here are a couple of closeups of my layout...
I cut the word 'Rad' from one of the patterned papers to use as part of my title, and I added some foam tape behind it to give it extra dimension. I also used the Boys Rule cut file set to cut an arrow and some stars to embellish my page. These co-ordinated perfectly with the die-cuts and stickers that I used from the Totally Rad collection! I arranged the embellishments diagonally on the layout to help the viewer's eye to travel down the page, and to keep the focus on the photo.
To finish the layout off I added my journalling as well as a few enamel dots and black ink splatters.
Thanks so much for joining me today! Keep your eye out for some awesome new cut files that will be in the shop later this week!
Until next month, happy scrapping!
