The Look!

Over on the Bella Blvd blog I was inspired by this sketch recently. I have never been one to take on the hexagon trend so I decided to switch out the hexagons for fun embellishments including chipboard elements, stickers, sequins and letters.
There are some photos you take that stay with you forever, this one, the one on the left melts my heart every time. It shows my youngest son looking at Cookie Monster with such belief and such love that it gets me every time. It was taken way back in January on our trip to Sea World in San Diego!



 I've layered the photos and photo mat over vellum for a softer look.



I love how the combo of bright primary colours make this layout feel so kiddie!
