My Story - Layout - The Scrapbook Store

....and another layout created for The Scrpabook Store, using Carta Bella 'So Noted' paper collection, and elements. Again, I used the Silhouette Cameo, to do the edge of the paper border, the leaves, and  title. 

The large bloom is from Green Tara, and The Scrapbook Store has a wonderful range of their products, which can be found 'HERE' - lots of new ribbons, flowers, lace, etc.  

Jesse just loves reading.  John and I have both read to him, right from a young age, often. He has developed a love of books and one is never far from him.  This photograph was taken in August last year, in his new Elmo outfit, sitting on the front porch reading.  When he realised I was taking photographs, he then started the circus act of posing and then doing cartwheels.  Little charmer he is!
The Prima Mask 'Dots' was used to create a little more interest on the background paper.  I love this stencil, one of my very favourites - I love dots! I don't think there is a single page in my mixed media journal that does not have dots :-)
 I will be back soon with more creations...
Sandie
