Lasting Impression layout

Here's a layout I did for Lasting Impression using Sandy Lion Sea Serpent paper. I can say I love this cool dude errr I mean serpent.



At first, I cannot think of photos I'll use for this paper. I'd like to think I have always tried to be logical with my layouts or maybe too literal that I want to use photos that kinda have the same theme with the paper. Perhaps swimming photos since it's a sea serpent anyway? Or maybe Ethan's favorite toys? Or scrap about Ethan's "monstrous" acts hehehe. Anyway, I was too lazy to unearth, more so edit pictures. I just want to scrap what I already have with me. So, here's what I came up with ...



I decided to scrap Ethan's birthday photo! Clearly, the photo has nothing to do with the paper but I love it! And the "groovy" chipboard at the bottom has nothing to do with Ethan, I think it has more to do with the serpent hehehe. Honestly, I put it there because it matches the brown cardstock base hehehe. I also left more white space this time. I used my collection of brads (Queen &Co., Making Memories and All About Scrapbooking) to embellish the scallop border at the bottom. The scalloped borders are scraps from my Scenic Route Metropolis papers (super old na, hindi pa din ubos hahaha!).



To add more monsters in the layout, I cut these from October Afternoon Night Light paper and made them look like they're peeking from the inside.



Other matls used: Fancy Pants-True rub ons; Ki Memories chipboard (Groovy) and sticker borders; Scenic Route chipboard and sticker (candles); Making Memories letter stickers; American Crafts Thickers (no.4) and photo corner chipboard; embroidery floss; buttons; Queen & Co., Making Memories, AAS brads; Zig pen

Now for the title, I am choosing between: True (as the rub ons say hehehe) or 4 Today (the one written at the bottom). What do you think? : )

By the way, since Mr. Sun finally showed up today, I was able to take photos of my layouts. Will be sharing them this week : )

Now off to singing, "Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, please shine down on meeee!!!!!!!!"
