The 1st for the New Year: 1 Picture Layout

So why wait to get started? Ok, well I did wait 4 days into the new year to do my first layout! lol...

This is what I did and I am really happy with it.

I finally got to use the Making Memories Noteworthy Collection Ava RicRac Ledger Paper that I got a few months back. I was hesitant to use it because it has pink details on it and scrapping for my son never requires any pink but this time I made it work. This was the perfect picture for this paper. So I ran with it... pinks, purples and a brick red to make it a little more masculine. The journal sheet is from the Making Memories Noteworthy Collection as well.

The chipboard letters in "Work" and "Play" are from K&Company Marcella's Anastasia's line and they are purples and browns, very pretty and they have been in my stash for quite sometime now and never knew how to work them into a layout - this was the perfect time! I put those down with 3D-dots. I cut out "All", "&" and "No" using my Jasmine Cricut Cartridge and used black stickles on them for a little sparkle.

Over the photo I have a clear frame that is from Miss Elizabeth's (a dollar store find) as well as the purple circles I scattered around.

The flowers are paper and I put little purple buttons in the middle of them... I like the way it looks :)

The picture is adorable... I took my son to work with me last year in April and he sat at my desk with my cell phone to his ear and "typing" on my computer! It was just too cute and too funny!

I hope you like it and I hope this layout will set the tone for the 74 to come.
