Nick's Smiling Face

Nick was in an exceptionally smiley mood one day when he got home from school, so I snapped several pictures of him smiling--not always an easy task.  His blue and brown shirt coordinated well with CTMH's new Wonderland paper pack, and this is the layout I created.  The layout itself is a combination from a bunch of layouts I saw while looking through examples.
While trying to find just the right title for the layout, I came across James Taylor's song "Your Smiling Face," which was perfect.  I printed the lyrics and cut them out with a crazy font--"Christy" I think.

The tag is a punch, and I added the mini binder clip.  "Nick" is made with CTMH's stamp set Typeface, and the flourishes are second generation stamped from the Pair-a-Phrase set.  The date stamp is a retired set called Today's Date.  The arrow embellishment points to the 26th, the actual day I took the picture.

"2011" and "love" are from a set of CTMH rub-ons.  I added random CTMH mocha opaques.

There is a partial circle of mocha opaques on the first page and another one bridging the two pages.  I made these by using round dimensional elements as a guide. (see photo above)

  1. Love seeing that smiling face too! Great layout! Those opaques really add a nice pop of texture and design.
