Layout 100: play

Hi!

Or maybe I should be saying Woo Hoo!  I made it to 100 layouts!  Here it is:


It's a bit different to what I'd normally do, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  I don't like the Paisley Petals DSP at all, but I think they suited this double layout well.

The photos are of Hudson and are a sequence I took in October.  I didn't think much of the photos until I laid them out in order and realised they reflected his personality so much. I wrote about it in the journalling:

I love how this sequence of photos of you playing in the surf at Lady Bay so perfectly capture your personality.  You may need a little help getting to where you want to go, but once you're there you live life to the fullest.  You may get knocked over, but you just pick yourself up and get on with things.  And when bigger waves come, you know we're there for you.  I love your joy and your determination Hudson.

You can see all the expressions in his face - the uncertainty, the joy, the fear and finally, the determination.  He's one special little man!

Ink: Always Artichoke
DSP/Cardstock: Paisley Petals DSP, River Rock, Always Artichoke, Whisper White
Other: Big Shot, Simple Letters Alpha Dies, White Baker's Twine, 1/16" Circle Punch

Thanks so much for following my little blog in 2011.  I hope you've enjoyed my cards and my scrapping and found a little bit of inspiration somewhere along the way.  I wish you all a happy and creative 2012 and look forward to reading your comments and visiting your blogs in 2012.

Catch you later,

Tina
