Hello Son

I made this layout awhile back, when TM was having a big sale...but I never finished it. And then I moved some stuff around in my room and it found its way to the bottom of a tall pile. I cleaned up that pile, and low and behold, like the archaeologist I was trained to be, I found a great treasure!

I haven't added the journaling yet, but I know what I want to write. It's a little too personal to be on display at the store though, so that will have to wait.

I wanted to experiment with shapes and layers. I haven't cut my photos in to shapes in many (many) years, but this felt okay. I was so hesitant to lose the backgrounds at first, but I think his face tells the story in each photo and that is what I wanted to focus on. The feet picture is just an added bonus! HA!
