Cutie Pie

I have a bit of a story about this layout--that CUTE little boy is my hubby.  It was TOTALLY funny because my boys each though it was one of them! :)  My hubby doesn't have to many pictures of himself as a little guy.  A few years ago one of his sisters found a box of pictures at her parent's house and scanned them.  Then after that HUMONGOUS job she gave each of the 7 siblings a copy of the pictures.  Low and behold there were a few pics of my hubby.  This was one of the few pictures that didn't exactly have a date but we guest-mated the age.

 Another little tidbit about this layout.  I initially was going to make it an 8 1/2 x 11 but it just didn't look right.  I then placed it on a 12 x12 and it STILL didn't look right!  So I cut 2" off of the side and made it a 10 x 12" layout. (that is taking a creative page out my scrapping buddy Elizabeth Carney's page)  Now it looked right!  I added a few things here and there and it was finished!
 I think my favorite part of this layout has to be the triangles.  I made a cut with my cameo for this layout, and used the leftovers on my other layouts from this kit.
That's all for today!  thanks SO much for the visit!

Great photo!! And I love how it turned out with your changes! The large black mat looks great against the 12x12 background and I love all of the different papers you used behind the photo!
