Blowing on Dandelions

Hi again,

Another sweet layout of my grandson.  I have similar pictures of his daddy blowing on dandelions when he was young (probably a little younger than Matthew).

First, I have to tell you that this paper has been in my mega stash for years.  Back before I scrapped Ben’s dandelion pictures.  I had bought it knowing it was perfect for Ben’s pictures and somehow it slipped my mind when I was scrapping.  I am so happy that I remembered this sheet of paper when I went to scrap these pictures.  I dug and dug to find it and of course it was near the bottom.  I was so happy to see it.  The good news is that I was reminded of some of the other paper that I bought that got buried (in the stack and in my memory).

What you can’t tell about this paper is it is slightly lifted up and shiny where the dandelions and grass is.  Much prettier in real life than in cyber life.  😀  The only thing I did to the layout (after the digging) was mat the pictures (I chose a blue because of Matthew’s shirt – and eyes) and put a cute sticker that says “prince charming” on a piece of white paper and trim around it.  I attached the pics and sticker to the paper and knew that I was done.  I am toying with the idea of trying to find a picture of my son blowing the dandelions and adding it to the page.  That might be a difficult task but it might be a worthy one.

Take care of you and your loved ones!

God bless!

  1. Sometimes the busy pattern paper is hard for me to work with. This paper goes great with the simple pictures of Matthew. I also like the blue with the brown paper. Matthew looks very intent on blowing those dandelions. Most people don’t like those dandelions in their yards,but encourage them to grow in my yard because the bees like them.So tell Matthew he’s welcome in my yard to blow away.

  2. Loving the background paper. Just perfect. Those fat little cheeks trying so hard to blow off the seeds. Precious. Not a gentle breeze for this dandelion. Something wonderful captured in time.
