What is it about little boys and granddaddy's hats? This is my Jacob man years ago at age three proudly wearing Boppa's felt cowboy hat.
I wanted to use kind of a four-square design, and I wanted it to be casual and playful, so nothing is lined up, the outlining is done very loosely and I used three different alphas on the title square. It's a really simple design, the four-square thing and worked out great for me because I didn't want to have to arrange and rearrange and rearrange again till I was happy with the photo placement. It was 1,2,3 oh yeah, and 4 and I was done!
Used Heidi Swapp No Limits papers and I think a piece of Echo Park's About a boy, as well. Most of the embellishments are from the cut-a-parts in the No Limits pad or from a Heidi Swapp embellishment pack, but the viewmaster piece is from a Maggie Holmes emphemera pack, the Oh Boy is from the Echo Park sticker sheet (About a Boy or a Boy's Life---I can't remember which), and the little camera and dimensional star are from an Amy Tangerine embellishment pack. The alphas used in the title are from the Echo Park sticker sheet, a Webster's Pages alpha set and the large textured red alpha are Thickers.
And this was just taken the other day...our Mr. Jackson, a.k.a Bubba Lu (he's almost three)--and yep, he's sporting Boppa's woven cowboy hat!
So funny to me---Jacob and the hat 15 years ago and Jackson now. Little boys and granddad's hats, some things don't change, do they? I may even use the same layout design to scrapbook this!
