Love this Wonder Layout

I've been having a good time going through this box of photos that I had printed when I did Zachary's 1st year Album :) This first experience taught me that I love to take lots of pictures and get lots of them printed :) So lots of left over pictures and have found that I can create little stories with these left over pictures for our own scrapbooks here at the house. This was a moment I just love of Dave and Zachary together :) Dave and Zachary didn't have the best relationship when Zachary was young, we think it had something to do with the beard :) So a captured moment that makes me happy to see :) From the PI crop (Negative Space Challenge) construct a layout with a 1/3rd of the page:

This is not my normal style so I went off looking for a sketch that I could work with and found this one over at The Memory Nest: their Make it Monday: No 49:

I just love all the layers on this sketch too and was able to use this for the negative space challenge and also used the colors of the photo inspiration challenge over at Scrappin N Chattin yahoo group. I found out with this challenge that if the background paper is busy t works perfect for me for this type of challenge cause then I was good with all the space because to me is didn't feel visually empty like a plain white background does for me.The challenges really do make me grow as a scrapper and helps me to understand my type of scrapping.
 I love the project life cards in my Feast of Fun, my current counterfeit kit :) I found 2 fun cards to use on this layout This one I cut down for the sentiment, I inked up the edges with I'm thinking the CTMH chocolate ink in my kit. I added some silver adhesive gems for the design triangle effect about the layout.
 This card was perfect for the emphasis of the moment that was taking place in the photo. I journaled a bit of the moment that was taking place. Added a metal brad with the gems and some washi tape.
 I had fun creating the title with making sure the Love that was on the paper peaked out enough to have it available added the word strip and popped up the word cutout. This is one of my favorites this year :)
