I have a Matthew page. I have had these two pictures that are black and white. My youngest son was in a photography class last year and he took and developed these pictures of Matthew.
I used one of the pages that came with the photo album. The lion’s mane was an orangish red. Matthew’s favorite color is orange so I decided to mat the photos with orange cardstock. I left them both square cornered and then I attached them to the background page. The bottom pictures corner was barely touching Matthew’s face in the top pictures so I ended up rounding that corner of the mat. It made a big difference. I had a cute piece of cardstock that has a saying about boys. I matted that on orange cardstock to and put that on the page. There was a corner of the mats that were on the background page that was left exposed. (I covered the rest of them up with the pictures and with the saying). I used that exposed mat corner as a journaling box. I had a lion sticker (that came with the scapbook) and was just like the lion on the bottom of the page but smaller. I added it to the top of the layout. It turned out super cute.
Thanks for taking a peek!
