Today is my day to Guest Design for Pam at TheBugBytes.
I took a similar photo of my three sons when Tanner was 2 weeks old. In that photo, he would not keep his hand open flat so instead we got him to grab his brother's pinkie finger (totally precious). This Christmas, 6 years later, Tanner suggested we take another "hand" picture ~ so we did!
I wanted to preserve this photo along with a message to my boys about what I wish for them.
I started out by placing a 4x4 square on my Gypsy mat to represent the photo.
I placed this Icon shape from Creative Memories Art Philosophy at 9.31 inches on a new layer. I cut it out of Tim Holtz double sided paper. I trimmed it in half then cut off a 2 inch section and flipped the bottom half over.
I cut out Family is Forever from Sophisticated sized to 1.43 inches. I used black cardstock.
I used Tim Holtz paper to mat my photo and create a journaling tag. I destressed the edges of hte paper and inked around the photo mat and journaling card.
I used 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon across the center of the layout. I added some metal rings, arrow and brads to the page.
This is a layout that I will frame and display for a while before I add it to my album. Thanks Pam for having me over today!!
