Laugh, Laugh Often ... SOS Pagerize #24 This Challenge Layout

Hello Everyone,

Each month Scrap Our Stash has a Pagerize This Challenge. Pagerize is simply a scraplifting challenge and a lot of fun!  This month we have been challenged to pagerize this lovely page made by fellow DT member, Karen.

And as soon as I saw Karen's scrap page, I just had to pagerize it. I've chosen to scrap a photo taken of my son 42 years ago when he was only 9 months old and the apple of his mother's eye :) We were on leave from Germany, visiting his grandmother in Ayrshire, Scotland. In fact, almost the whole family gathered to meet him, aunts, uncles and even his great-grandmother came through from Edinburgh to see her first great-grandchild. 

This was the first professional photo I had taken of him and I can still recall it vividly to mind. He laughed and chuckled happily for the photographer throughout the session - hence the title - he was an incredibly happy baby :) Although it's a black and white shot, I remember that he was dressed in palest green so I chose to have that as the main colour with touches of blue, yellow and pink in the embellishments. I've moved the photo cluster up to the right of the page and swopped embellishment clusters round a bit, but otherwise it is more or less the same layout as Karen's.

Materials:  Papermania, Happy Days; Imaginisce For Peep's Sake, Spring Fling; Fancy Pants It's, The Little Things; blue BoBunny cardstock; Hot Of The Press, Serendipity; Nitwit Collection, Bumbleberry Cottage; Champion Art Stamps, Laugh Often; WH Smith, blue label; all the other embellishments from stash.

If you would like to have a go at pagerizing/scraplifting Karen's layout, you have until the 12th of December to submit to Scrap Our Stash - full details can be found on the blog.

Thanks for looking. 

Happy Crafting,

Awwww, he is so cute!
Great to have memories like that recorded in our books. I like that you chose your colours based on the colours he was wearing that day!
Great take on that sketch.
