3rd scrapbook page!


As you may be aware... my son has just returned home from Australia after 4 years!!! and this was one of the photos i loved of him (he hates it though - thinks he looks a bit of a geek!) i loved this photo though and decided to plan a scrapbook page around it.
I used a play on words with the {son-} flower part and used Papermania Marie curie stamps for the background (as they had a sunflower!) and then to make the larger flower i used the personal impressions ones again, i love the stamps, they are just so simple, but you can use them for some really good effects! i particularly like the flower petal as it makes a fab flower when you stamp lots of them! glittered the middle of the background sunflowers as i thought it set it off bit better, but was really pleased how it all came out.

Nicki, this is beautiful. And so perfect the way you have used the sunflower stamp to carry the theme.
