That Look

My grandson has this look in his eyes so often that just melts my heart. He is so dang cute and so many of my layouts feature him, lol.

So this one was created using 1891 from the Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics line. (Click on this sentence to go to my store - but know that the images don't do these papers justice.) I absolutely LOVE this whole line of paper and can guarantee you will be seeing more layouts using them.

Oh - and before I show it to you I must tell you that this layout was inspired by Lene Bjornerud. I stumbled across her blog the other night and was caught there for hours! This woman is soooo talented and I can clearly see why she made the Prima team! Yay, Lene!!

This one was actually a very simple layout. I just splattered some paint, used 2 pop up foam dots on top of each other for height on the photo and used various flowers around the photo. I did use an older vine from Prima (as well as some of the small roses too), the larger red flowers are older Petaloo and just one, one medium sized golden flower is from Manor House Creations. I also used some olive bloomers from Webster's to fill in the space below the photo.

Once I got all of the flowers in place, I just put a chippie frame on top and wrapped some rope around it. I almost went with a red title, but at the last minute chose a golden one to keep your eye on the photo. Voila! That's it. Took maybe 30 minutes tops!


  1. Super duper sweet, Leslie- love how you've used "Christmas colors" on a non-holiday page- works SO well here!

  2. and it's a totally gorgeous layout and 30 minutes ... wowsers ...
