This is going to be a long post . . . sorry.  Not really!

I have more time these days to participate in challenges and am loving it. Challenges help push a creative person to do more than their comfortable with - at least for me. I can't really say that I was uncomfortable making this layout, but I do tend to shy away from large titles and multiple photos usually.

The photos taken are of my son and nephew during my sister's wedding. They knew they were handsome and cute! My son usually hides from the camera these days and I am always very happy when he cooperates . . . even loosely.

At first I thought I was going to go with "summer" colors for these photos, but that just didn't seem right. Then I came across Simple Stories "24/7" in my stash and just loved the color combination. I just "felt" like these photos really needed red to go with them. I LOVE how this turned out. Even my husband commented on it. My sister will be jealous of all the hearts cause that is her thing.

I am entering this into two different challenges.

Scrap our Stash Challenge: P-A-P-E-R
P - Pendant - Tim Holtz
A - "Arrow" sticker
P - Pop dot heart
E - Best Day "EVER" frame
R - "Really?" sticker

Sketchabilities #144 - obviously I followed their sketch.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I love layering my embellishments.
