He's Jolly

Here's another layout based on a challenge. You can read the original post here. The challenge was to use only half of your paper, leaving plenty of space for the eye to rest. This has been a popular approach to scrapbook pages for a while, although there are still plenty of pages with multiple photos and little "wasted" space. I also used another popular technique here of clustering accents.

I like this approach for a couple of reasons. It's pleasing to my eye, and allows a single photo to be the focus. Sometimes you want to tell your story with only one photo, as is the case here. I love this photo of Isaac. I think it shows so clearly the resemblance he has to his daddy's side of the family. Something about his expression really makes me think of one of his cousins.

It's so much fun to scrapbook photos of children! They have such cute expressions on their faces. Seeing this just makes me want to squeeze that boy!

Till next time!
