Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
It always amazed me how kids can be happy about pretty much anything. But there is not greater joy than that when their dreams come true. And which little boy doesn’t dream about a bike? I was lucky enough to have captured that joy – my younger son’s first ride on a “big” bike 🙂
Just look at his beaming face 🙂
I didn’t actually plan to use these papers, but they happen to perfectly match the colour palette of the photo, so…yep, it’s March and I’m still using the Christmas collection 😉 I layered pieces of papers upon a neutral cream background of papers from other collections, which I decorated with a brickwall pattern using a Prima stencil – I wanted to repeat the pavement pattern. I know, it’s not perfect, but it’s close enough. I also added some die-cut tags:
To enhance the photo’s theme, I added a chipboard bike:
…and to enhance the photo’s golden mood, I added some golden accents:
Of course, I couldn’t do without some flowers 🙂
I’m so glad I managed to take this photo! Now I can cherish this sweet memory so nicely completed with these beautiful Christmas Season papers 🙂
Here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: flowers, stencil: Prima; chipboard: Tim Holtz, wycinanka; button: Lemoncraft; foam word: American Crafts; twine: Divine Twine.
And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!
What an outstanding layout here, and what an amazing picure, I totally agree, thers nothing like a kids glooming face, when they finally get something they´ve really wished for in a long time, and this pic is priceless and sooo adorable. I love how the layout is build up with all the layers and differnt embellisments. Absolut stunning work here once again Maja, I just LOVE it.
