My First Layout In Ages....


This layout of my now nine year old granddaughter Andie was made using Marnie's "Wellies" Challenge......six gorgeous boots in various prints and textures.....I chose the houndstooth wellie . The houndstooth print showed up really well with the blues and greens of the BoBunny Double Dots paper against the black background and with the black and white photo. The buttons are chipboard buttons that I love and have been hoarding for a long time.....they matched the layout so well...it was time to use them.

The photo: Andie doesn't usually like smiling for photos...but with this photo...we're getting there. I call it her "Mona Lisa" smile. I think it's perfect...and perfectly Andie.
