did somebody say color?

did somebody say color? well, boy do i have a layout for you!

the latest challenge at wee memories is 'dare to color', where everyone is challenged to use no less than 4 colors, and i accepted the challenge! :)

so during my little mann's first year, i took a picture of him at every 'month' birthday he had. and i put all of the pictures together on this layout to show how much he grew in one year! here's the finished product:

as you can see - no fear of color here! :)

i used lots of lawn fawn, and lots of homemade felt hearts with button embellishments!

i used various stamps from the 'say cheese' and 'say cheese, too' stamp sets. i paper pieced the big polaroid camera and also used 'harold's abc's' to create the title, 'what a difference a year makes' for the banner at the bottom of the page.

it's a very simple layout, but i wanted to keep it simple, so that pictures stood out. :)

oh, and i guess i'll have to make another page similar to this in another year or so...let me introduce the newest little mann: just over a week old! :) we're very happy!
