X-pression scrapbooking layout "Fussy Cut"

Happy Sunday!!!!
 


Today I am showing you a layout I made for a challenge over at "Do More With Less"  "Fussy cutting your photos and journalling with Lizzy Hill!"
Most of you know I rarely do scrapbooking layouts but I was truly inspired by Lizzy, it is really worth your time to look at some of her amazing layouts!!
Click HERE to read more and participate!!!



I did a layout of my oldest son Ryan, he is a total riot. He is one of my favorite people to be around and I am so excited he will be home from University next week!!!!!  Ryan made it a challenge at times to take a serious picutre as you can see in this layout, lol
 
OK so this is his school photo, to start he doesn't wear glasses..LOL, they were borrowed from a friend... I laughed thinking the camera man thought this acceptable, hahahahaha.. I could only imagine the time he had with Ryan and his friends, they all did something similar.
 
 
Another put on, hehe! He is pretending to be frustrated with his game, I really think he could have went into acting.  You have to enlarge the picture to really see this expression.
 

I used Tim Holtz grunge letters for the title and the embellishments are from my stash
 


The blue string is from a place mat I got from Bi-Rite a few years ago, it started to unravel and it makes THE perfect string to tie... it doesn't slip or try to get away on you... as you can see I used it all over this layout..I will be using it much more , reminds me of a bigger version of scrapper's floss with a crimp to it.
 
 
 
Have a fantastic day!!!

Love this!! I love Lizzy's layouts and always enjoy popping in for some of her inspiration - as I do here too. I adore your LO, the fun aspect of it, and the gorgeous photographs you enclosed. The string, buttons, banner pieces, all look so cool as do the cut-out photo's. Hope you have a wonderful week Naomi cousin.... hehehe

Picture does not do it justice. So much more noticable detail up close and in person. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me.
