And the best of all is -- they are so generous to my children -- showering them with everything and most of all lotsa love and attention ... its is my hope I can do a quick mini album for them using these photos... Its my only way to say thanks for everything they do for my family....
The children requested to feed the ducks again at Nurrangingy Park and so armed with old bread and our breaky from Mcdonalds, braved a sunny day there...

How ancient to finally use my BG Skate shop pps! on the left side of the page had J and R on the side and by stroke of luck there were isolated O E and Ls in the middle of the page and so I cut them to make the name JOREL. I matt them with Daisy Bucket pps in excess and used a gold leafing pen to outline.
I dont do photo shop so this is the closest thing -- i placed a sticker and I outlined it with blackpen -- it worked well on the b/w pic dont your think?
Since these photos are a series shot of Jorel -- the b/w pic is suppose to be my focal point on this layout. The left 6x12 of the background paper was cut (reattached it later) and embossed with Cuttlebug folders and same with the JOREL title.

Jounrnalling reads: Smiles are the soul's kisses
Materials: Kraft Cardstock, Fancy Pants About a boy pp, Prima blings, EK Success craft knife, craft foam, Uniball signo pen, Rubon (brand unknown), Stampin up whisper white pigment ink
Using rubons I framed various captions Jorel's picture and added bling to accent. The tranparency layers from Autumn Leaves come in 2x12 sizes but I cut it close to size to be able to play with it on on the page. Using the signo pen, I just doodle some dots to give it a little more emphasis.
Some part of the About a boy design were to nice to throw and so i cut them and u sed them as frame corner accents and matting
This is meant to be a a little 3d but of course the shot is blurry so you cant see as well. Lots of cutwork here. I then rubbed on pigment ink on the edges for a more dreamier look.

Journalling: I love to take pictures of you. I follow you everywhere, just waiting to capture your unique personality. Its not always easy because you keep me running and sometimes youre not ina good mood. Hopefully you will thank me when you look back and see the years of photographs that I have snapped during heartwarming moments. Thank you for etching these precious images in my heart forever.
Materials MME Vita Bella d beautiful life, Ek Success Phrase Cafe/Adorn it Carolees rubons, Chatterbox Word Tags,
Finally I found a layout that I can use these Chatterbox wood tags which has been sitting in my stash for the longest time..
I cut a hole on the scroll design of the pattern paper and inserte a matted photo with metallic accent -- all cut from MME papers. The top right hand corner -- I added another vine design form the same Vita Bella papers. It was a little intricate but it took a while since I wanted it done perfectly.. I then adhered it to the page and then used the rubon.
