Caricature Cuteness!

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

While I'm off this summer I'm trying to work on my layouts. While going through a box of photos I found this cute caricature that an artist drew of Rachel when she was 8 years old. He did such a great job of capturing her big brown eyes.

I decided to make a layout with it. I'm going to go to Michael's today and buy a 12 x 12 frame to put this layout in. I want to display it on a shelf in my living room.

I didn't want to clutter this page up with too much decor.  I picked paper and embellies that had some of my favorite colors like orange, yellow, pink, turquoise, and green. 

I also added wood embellishments to add to the decor of the page. I used the word "Dream" because the T.V. show - "Glee" has Rachel hooked on the Aerosmith song - "Dream On".

I used a lot of American Crafts products including these 
cute crocheted flowers.

 Have a Scrappy Week!
