Favourite Photo

I scrapped this today - no sketches, no challenges in mind, not for a class - just me & a pile of yummy Daisy D's new stash. I used 'Favourite Photo' page kit; 'Brighten My Day' buttons, ribbons, fabric flowers; 'Reflection' chipboard titles plus a lot of handcutting, a black pen & a dark brown ink pad.
My mum took this photo of Auryn & the boy next door a few weeks ago - such a lovely shot that I've been dying to scrap it for days!! I like to use a lot of embellishments on my personal stuff (can't do it for classes where budget comes into play!) and I find the easiest way to do that is to add lots of layers - like the flowers on the chipboard letters and the bits that overlap the photo. You can get lots on like that without it looking too cluttered. Hope you like it.
