Daddy Time

Another layout for my nephew's first year.  I pulled some photos of him and daddy and used manly colors and patterns.

I used the Fab Friday prompt at Frosted Designs to use brads and/or eyelets.  I actually used both!  I used eyelets to sting my twine through and create the illusion of it holding down the vertical strips.  Then, I placed two groups of 3 circle brads to add interest on the brown vertical strip and used blue, square brads on the skinny plaid strip to add interest and shape.  I turned the square at a different angle to add even more interest and some contrast.  I used a Page Maps sketch for inspiration in the design.

The layout

Awesome page Laura!! I love the mix of square and round brads and the eyelets with the twine is such an awesome idea! And a very cute, boyish page! And those Amy Tan alphas...you KNOW I am loving those and still having gotten any yet!! UGH! :)

Love the splatter and the masculine papers. The machine stitching is a nice touch. Perfect pairing the clock with "time" in your title!
