Task 14: Oh! Brothers (and Sister)

As soon as I saw Brandy Murry's One Yellow Paper layout in the newsletter, I knew I really wanted to study it. One Yellow Paper

 

I'm still working on the scrapbook for my inlaw's 50th wedding anniversary last Thanksgiving. It was quite a family reunion, on such a special day. We managed to get some great photos, and I know they'll be treasured keepsakes. This layout is of the three siblings, all grown up. I wish I had some childhood photos of them to add--that would be neat.

 

To make this layout truly unique I added a chipmunk. All during the photo shoot Uncle Dan was grousing about the chipmunks on his deck, threatening much violence against all of rodent kind. This one little guy just wouldn't take a hint, or maybe he was all about teasing Dan! At any rate, he was just not going to go away. I noticed while other family members were being photographed that Dan was showing the little chipmunk to his one year old DGS. Big softie! (Grandbabies will do that to a guy!)

Oh how lovely! I love the story about the chipmunk and including one in your LO will raise a smile from everyone I'm sure. I love the way you've blended the photo into the bg. BTW - I too think scraplifting is a really good way to study a designers technique - it sounds more complementary too!

Beautiful layout and sweet story! The blending of the photo into the stacked papers is great. I like how you added the names to your beautiful cluster. I agree with Eden--including your story in a layout would be so nice.

The rich warm colors you've used really give the photo a sense of importance. Composition is wonderful. I, too, love the chipmunk. The tags in the cluster are very nice. An altogether great page.
