A Scrapbook Layout

My son Nate and my mother-in-law posed for this photo last summer at a family event.  I had been wanting to take a picture of Nate and Nana and frame it for her, since she has a table that is covered with photos of her and her grandchildren, and she doesn't have a current one of Nate.  I had the perfect opportunity at a family party.  This layout was made with Authentique paper, and I started it at a scrapbook event at my LSS this weekend.  I loved the distressed look of the paper, and the color combination of blues and greens.  I followed this Authentique March sketch challenge

and  made the flower with paper from that same line with my flower die. 

I finished the flower off with a small felt button flower from Basic Grey Bloomers.  The pennants are strung with twine and each one is separated with a wooden button from Prima.

Thanks for stopping by!
