Hi everyone! Here is my page for this week's colourQ! The colors are: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Early Espresso, and White.
On this page are photos of one of my babies when he actually WAS a baby;) This is Ev when he was four months old! I can't believe how little he looks! This page was sort of a rescue mission for these photos. I used to have them in a frame, and then when I stashed all my "regular, year-round" deco at the holidays, the frame was broken and there was broken glass ALL over! It was one of those frames that had the pics sandwiched between 2 pieces of glass, and it was the piece on the back that broke, so I had to actually TEAR these pics off the cardstock they were mounted on (which was taped to the broken glass), so the backs of these photos are a complete mess, some of them a paper thin in areas. Anyway, I had saved them & once I got them mounted onto new cardstock they looked MUCH better and the colors seemed to work well with this weeks challenge.

So, I pieced together this 12" paper from 2 separate sheets/scraps by Crate Paper, I put a yellow SU! border sticker down to hide the seam. I cut my title on the Cricut from some Bazzill textured cardstock in the Olive color & bordered the letters in Espresso. I mounted one pic in Olive, one in Kiwi and one in Espresso. The sun is made from a cut circle and punched hearts for the "rays." I printed my journaling on some patterned paper and after matting it, I accented the left side with an OA sticker that I put Ev's name on with some yellow sticker letters and I added a couple of those green glitter buttons I've been so fond of lately! My final touch were some pinwheels I made:) I hope you like my page!
