Tues. Freebie 9/11

Nathan enjoying an evening dip in the pool with his grandma.

Layout notes: I wanted to keep the layout simple and let this photo stand out...because I loved how it spotlighted Nathan against the evening sky (I didn't make any photo edits). Plus, with the slight translucency of the brush, I wanted to use a dark background to make the colors pop. I used a grungy photo mask to add some interest, a couple embellishments, and used Syndee's Color Swatch action on the beachball to make the swatches that line the top and bottom.

    Do I see grunge on your layout?? :) Looks GREAT!!! Nathan is so stinkin cute!! I love what you did with this, leaving the main focus the photo with the dark contrast! Very well done!
    Adorable photo! I especially like the colors here: the dark background looks wonderful with the bright beach ball, umbrella, and the freebie month brush. Great layout!
    I like the grungy edge to your photo and the dark background with a splash of colour. Great layout.
    Really nice, and I like the grungy border. Great photo, too.
    Great photo! Love the bright pops of color against the grunge and dark BG.
    Lovely photo! I love the colours against the dark background. You really got the effect you wanted! Good job!
    It's a stunning photo. I love the color pop of the beach ball and the colored edge you made is lovely. Really a lovely layout.
