Just Like Mummy...........

This is a photo taken on my 40th birthday last year of Louis and me. I did this page and called it Curls because everyone always comments on Louis' gorgeous curls and then say,he must have gotten them from his mummy. I don't normally scrap pictures of myself as I'm not very photogenic but I thought this was an ok picture for having me in it.
I used Radiant Rain on plain white 12x12 cardstock to give the blue shimmering effect. I cut the swirls with a Sizzix die from blue Bazzill and added little Prima flowers with a blue brad in the centre all along the length of them. The title is cut on the Robo from blue
Bazzill. The photo is matted onto blue Bazzill and I used my Crop-A-Dile to set the eyelets and thread through the blue organza ribbon. The journalling stamp I stamped onto vellum and written in black pen. Two large flowers with large blue brads in the centre. To finish it off I've used a sheet of 12x12 acetate and stamped swirls onto it. I've attached it to the layout with little blue brads.

Sorry about the naff photo. It's not showing the colours off very well,or the shimmer on the card.

LOs never look as good in photos. So if that one looks that good in the photo, it must look stunning irl!
