I really love how this layout came out. Completely out of my comfort zone with this one. I painted a blue sheet of paper with blue and green paints and kind of blended them all together. This is my first painted background layout. This is also my first layout journaling directly on a photo. Also used Heidi Swapp chipboard letters. The page is 12x12 although it's cut slightly on the left hand side to hide blocks holding page down. The photos are also a bit curled up causing the black shadow, but I wanted to get this page copied and blogged as soon as I could. I believe this is also the 1st layout I've ever done for my husband. Lots of firsts on this one. Guess that's why I'm loving it.
