Imaginisce 'happy camper' layout

Have you seen the Happy Camper line in the store.  It is so cute and perfect for outdoor photos.  I love the little pink diecut bird.  The trees and clouds were in the same package.

Wood grain patterned papers are so popular and have been for a while.  I love them.  Check out the store for a variety of colours and designs.  There are even some sheets of 'real' wood to use on your layouts.  The wood paper I used here (Cosmo Cricket I believe) is a leftover piece from another layout I made months ago. I had cut a big circle out of the middle for my first layout so for this one I placed a big doily in the empty hole and then put the lot onto a piece of mustard yellow bazzil cardstock.

I misted over a tree mask and then splattered some yellow Making Memories paint using an old toothbrush.

Did you notice the Prima packaging under my big tag?  And I love the texture of the Prima canvas leaves.  So gorgeous!

The photo is of my two little boys in a big leaf pile when they were about 8 months old. Daddy thought it would be a good photo op. I don't think Daniel agrees. He's in the back with the worried look on his face.
I wanted to crop the photo so the boys were more the focal point, but then I would have lost the leaf pile and the fall colours so instead I wraped some green jute around to create a frame. This is a fun technique. It would work with natural jute; the kind you wrap parcels in, or even bakers twine. Look in the ribbon section at the store.
