Grateful for my Son November 18, 2015 07:00

I have four kids and between the two little boys who are at a cute and very scrappable age and my daughter, my oldest son often gets neglected in layouts.  This wasn't always the case but as he's aged, good pictures and topics are less easy to come by. So for this week's topic of gratitude I thought I would focus my layout on him.  Christine joining you today with a layout about my wonderful 11 year old son!

I love words and love to incorporate a lot of them onto layouts.  I thought the Everyday Words file contained some words that were perfect for showing how grateful I am for him as well as some of the things I think of him.  I was also really excited to use the file as a base for my whole layout and slide pictures in accordingly!

In order to get my pictures on there I had to cover up some of the words.  I also tried to keep the pictures placed so it was visually pleasing and not too crazy of a design.  I backed each of the words with a patterned paper in different fall colors and patterns and then did some outlining with my brown pen.

I also made use of some enamel dots cascading down the page to try and keep the eyes moving downward and reading. JustNick has so many great word files - you can find one to fill the need you have for your current layout and more!
