Live for Today layout

I really enjoy taking sets of photos of my son when he has the mood for it. I can't believe that boy is almost 3! it seems as if only yesterday I held him in my arms for the first time and fell in love....

for this layout I used a sketch provided from my creative scrapbook. at first I thought it would be difficult for me to play with it because this is not really my style but it turned out really good and I like it.

since the colors of the background are very vibrant I used some white acrylic paint before putting the rub-ons of the words and title.
I also used a little bit of the paint to make a thin frame for the photos so they would "pop".

This layout participates in the following challenges:

Anything goes for pile it on

butterflies (something with wings) for Our daily bread

Bling for My sheri crafts

Polka dot flowers for my time to craft
