Finally! Another layout that took me about 2 weeks to finish. These photographs of Roy {Harith's nephew} were taken by Arthur (Harith's brother-in-law) on Christmas Day last year. Have been with me so decided to do a scrapbook layout.

Harith suggested laying the photographs in a different way instead of just straight up. So the results...above.

I sandpapered the edges of the photograph and distressed the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Ink to give it a border feel. Then I applied Mode Podge over the words of the labels so the ink will not fade.

I found the poem online. It's rather unique and totally describes Roy who is a fun-loving and easiest-going kind of guy.

Materials used:

  • Bazzill Red Bling Cardstock
  • Patterned Paper from Provo Craft {Color Wheel Paper Collection} from Scrap-n-Crop
  • Dymo Labelling Machine
  • Scrap-n-Crop Rick Rack Ribbon {Double layer ~ Dark and Light Blue}
  • Prints Ribbon (Polka Dot)
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink
  • American Crafts Thickers Foam Letter Stickers {Subway ~ black}
  • American Crafts Thickers Chipboard Letter Stickers {Prancer ~ green}

Thats a gd layout. I am glad that you have decided to not leave the photos straight. Slightly askew adds so much more interest Serene. Well done.
