Paper Secrets

I haven't had too much time to scrapbook in the last two weeks...but for once I'm not going to complain. Last week a friend from California was in Dallas on business, so of course we invited her stay at our house. After being with us for a week she flew home, and the very next day my BFF (also from California) flew out to visit. We haven't seen any of our friends for almost six months, and I've missed them so much that I haven't even thought about the time I might have been able to spend in my scrappy space. And as an added bonus, my BFF is a whiz with the camera as well as photo-editing software so she photographed the below layout for me, taught me how to get my camera settings perfect so I can also take good photographs, and then gave me some tips for what little editing I did need to do.

And without further ado...a layout I did for the current challenge at Paper Secrets, which was to use the provided sketch as well as a "project life" card.

I flipped the sketch and came up with this...
I used some photos of Santiago from this past Easter. He went through a phase when he was about 3 years old that he just would not cooperate with being photographed. But now he's a bigger ham than ever! I just love him in his tie and skinny jeans...I'm seriously taking advantage of him allowing me to "dress" him for as long as possible. My husband wouldn't touch an ensemble like this with a ten-foot pole, but there's no reason my little man can't have swag!
