You are Oh So Original!

Yes..I believe that everyone was created to be an original. Unique by Design.
This photo of my goofy 9 year old says exactly that.  It is oozing with his own personality and I absolutely adore the expression on his face!
He was in the pool having "Noodle Wars" with his brothers and a few friends from down the street.  He was telling me "They are KILLING me Mom!!!" and THAT was the expression that I caught on camera.  LOVE IT.  LOVE.  LOL.
I decided to scrap this photo using the Summer Samba Collection as the main focus with bits of the Copper Kettle Collection intermixed. I LOVE the bright vibrant colors of the Summer Samba for my pics of the summer...it just adds life to them!  Here is a close up of the embellishment that i created by fussy cutting some pieces...

Here is a close up of the embellishment that I created by fussy cutting some pieces.  
I decided to use a grid pattern for the basis of this layout since I was using this vellum quote strip.  


I simply cut the quote strip in half to create a couple of my grid blocks.












Now, I certainly hope I've inspired you to get busy scrappin' some of your summer fun photos!  I had a blast doing this layout! Thanks for visiting us today...Have a Magnificent week!
 Supplies Used:
Copper Kettle Collection
Summer Samba 
vellum quote strip 
Powder Puff Inks Midnight Confessions and Amaretto
ribbon, twine, pain, gems
